This study focused on applying Fuzzy Zone of Tolerance (FZOT) to systematically explore the overall service quality of Taiwanese ocean-freight forwarder industry. This study surveyed the shipper's needs and develop the qualify perspective by using factor Analysis. There are four dimensions observed: convenience of operation process, aggregated service, excellent transit handling and rationalization of Freight rate.
