CRANE WORLDWIDE PICKS UP PRESTIGIOUS AWARD
The EMEA country of the year trophy was recently presented to Jason Stretton, Country Manager of Crane Worldwide Ireland by Crane Worldwide’s Executive team in Houston, USA. This prestigious accolade is well deserved by the team; Crane Worldwide Ireland has grown from strength to strength and now has offices in Shannon, Cork and Dublin. The Irish team demonstrate the core competencies of the Crane Worldwide company ethos, providing the personal touch to customers and applying the ‘challenging the norm’ value proposition that is the cornerstone of the Crane Worldwide business worldwide.
‘The value proposition is key to who we are’ explains Jason Stretton. ‘We have five guiding principles that steer our business to ensure we are focused on our customer’s needs: People, IT, Account Management, Compliance & Quality and Service Execution.‘‘We believe that a strong team is the core foundation in our operations. We are in a ‘people driven’ business and it is our team that will engage our customers, explore opportunities for improvement in their supply chains and execute to the highest standard possible. We take great pride in being the best at what we do here in Ireland and the recent award demonstrates the recognition from our Executive team that we are doing a good job!
‘Our IT service offering is highly regarded in the industry, as we are only a six year old organisation, we have the benefit of one global system that gives complete data visibility. It is not an amalgamation of hereditary systems as you may find elsewhere. We have one single operating platform that gives visibility throughout the entire shipment process – size, quantity, status, location – there are no secrets!’
‘Account management is key to delivering our ‘challenge the norm’ promise. We map our customer’s requirements carefully and implement a tailored solution that matches the individual requirements of each customer. We do not believe in a plug and play solution; collaboration with our customers to ensure we are implementing the most effective solution is the way in which we build our relationships here in Ireland and throughout the Crane Worldwide team globally. ‘Compliance & Quality is high on the agenda of our customers and our team at Crane Worldwide. We recognise that a valued partner in International trade compliance is key to timely customs clearance, risk management and adhering to international import and export regulations. We are fortunate at Crane Worldwide to have an experienced team on board to consult in this ever-changing and important domain.’
‘Service Execution is where we feel we will deliver our promises. The best partnerships are built on trust and through delivering on the service we have offered at exceptional standards, we believe that we will continue to ‘challenge the norm’ in the logistics industry and continue to build solid partnerships with our customers.’ Crane Worldwide has 106 locations in 25 countries.
