As per research on Blue Dart’s consumer feedback, conducted through Net Promoter Approach methodology, Blue Dart successfully scored a Net Promoter Score(NPS) of 100% for its TCL solutions, even higher than its other services which has an enviable NPS of 99.6%.


 


Mr. Ketan Kulkarni CMO & Head – Business Development, Blue Dart, said “The right partnerships are vital to secure critical medical supplies during health emergencies.
