AbstractThe major contribution of this study is to fully operationalise service quality as a six‐dimensional construct in the context of maritime transport/shipping, and findings on the ranking of dimensions/factors involved in the model. Although this is the first model of service quality in maritime transport with specific quality factors, its generic dimensions could be generalised to other service sectors as well. The research also has great managerial implications as managers across maritime transport companies can use the tool to develop questionnaire for customer satisfaction survey, thus facilitating a universal benchmarking approach across the industry. (Thai, 2008) A.)
