Ocean Star International of Broward County, Florida, Becomes RIM Certified
Ocean Star International (OSI) of Coral Springs, Florida, has become a Registered International Mover (RIM Certified). OSI received its RIM certification in late June, 2011 after successfully completing the certification process. This process included but was not limited to meeting strict RIM standards for equipment and facilities, passing an on-site inspection, and being tested on general shipping knowledge, procedural comprehension, and proper documentation practices.
RIM certification allows customers a means to differentiate between ordinary moving companies and extraordinary moving companies. The RIM program was developed to set a higher level of standards in the international moving industry. Josh Morales, CEO of Ocean Star International has this to say: “We have worked hard to become an elite shipping and moving company. It was important to us to receive our RIM certification so OSI could be viewed as an established and professional company to those who are new to the OSI brand.”
RIM certified companies are also required to adhere to the RIM Code of Conduct and Ethical Practices. This code includes such principles as providing honest, time-sensitive and cost-efficient moving services, handling customer’s goods with the highest degree of professionalism and integrity and continually engaging in on-going continuing education and training both formally and on-the-job. These are only three of the many principles listed in the RIM Code of Conduct and Ethical Practices; all of which were established to provide the best possible moving experience to the customers thus significantly decreasing the number of service failures and customer complaints. “This is just one more step OSI is taking to provide the best possible service to its customers," says Josh Morales, CEO of OSI.
