April 2013 Newsletter
Spring is here!

Another busy month here at QTS as we add capacity to meet the growing needs of our customers, and work to further improve our already “best in Arizona” on-time performance.

As we grow, we are laser focused on safety. We conduct routine safety classes and work with third party consultants to evaluate our processes and implement their suggestions for continuous improvement. No facet of our business escapes this most rigorous attention. We work to minimize risk as we travel the valley with our passengers.

But along with all the hard work and attention to detail, we’re just glad that April is also National Humor Month!

BTW – have you heard the one about…? 🙂

Our Quote of the Month:

Quality is never an accident;

it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution;

it represents the wise choice of many alternatives, the cumulative experience of many masters of craftsmanship.

1. What does QTS stand for?

“We stand by our moral and ethical obligation to do the right thing for the right reason, without fail — every transport, every time. We won’t sacrifice safety or service, which comes at a price. Because of that everyone is focused on being as efficient and financially responsible as possible. From the proactive maintenance of our fleet and equipment, to our green practices within the office, we understand that our clients want the best but also need value.”

2. What makes QTS different?

“Anyone can drive a van from here to there. We consider the needs of the passengers and clients and represent them accordingly by presenting ourselves and our vehicle in a clean and professional manner. The most important thing to us is the person we are with at the moment. We aren’t rushed, nor do we ever consider cutting corners or skimp on safety.”

3. What should our clients know about QTS?

“We don’t necessarily want to be the biggest; we want to be the BEST! We have a slogan on our wall that says it best ‘Be Safe, Be Nice, Be On Time’ ”

4. Tell us a fun fact about yourself?

“Prior to working at Quality Transport, I worked in Quality Control for PepsiCo. I guess I’m just a “Quality” kind of guy!”
