BCD Travel has announced the expansion of its specialised global travel management service aimed at companies operating in the energy, resources and marine (ERM) sector.
The division handles travel and logistics for crew and corporate employees and provides support with specialised services and solutions.
Along with the expansion of its ERM practice, the TMC has won a contract to manage the travel of one of the largest oilfield services providers in the world.
Stewart Harvey, BCD Travel president – EMEA, commented: “Supported by our leading proprietary technology, global network and dedicated ‘always on’ service centres, the expanded ERM service will bring a highly competitive offering to the ERM space. In particular to companies looking to drive efficiencies in their crew rotations, provide enhanced traveller safety across inherently risky destinations and meet the specialised needs of their crew and corporate travellers with one partner.”
Amy Dalton, senior vice president of BCD’s ERM practice (pictured), added: “Because of the unique service requirements of energy, resources and marine operations, businesses in these sectors generally rely on highly specialised travel agents that often work in manual processes and are set up separately from their corporate travel service. BCD Travel is investing in global technologies that offer automation and connectivity between traditional travel requirements and the logistics components associated with crew change. And we can bring together both crew and corporate services into a single programme to simplify our clients’ workload and drive savings through efficient operations.”
