GOL wins Brazil transport award

GOL has received “Melhores e Maiores 2006” award in the transportation sector. This award is organized by the leading business magazine in Brazil, EXAME, ranking the best and largest companies in the country each year. In 2004, GOL had received the same award, and, additionally, was named Company of the Year by EXAME.

“Receiving the EXAME award one more time make us proud. It is the recognition of our work to make air transport accessible to more and more people in Brazil and in South America as well. This award—that I share with our employees and clients—confirms our successful journey, marked by operational efficiency, lean structure, agility, simplicity, technology and low costs,” says Constantino de Oliveira Junior, president of GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes.

Technical consultants and the magazine staff considered six performance figures before appointing GOL as the best among 35 transportation companies: sales growth, fixed assets investment, market leadership, current liquidity, return on assets and wealth produced per employee.
