Not-for-profit sector TMC Key Travel has announced a partnership with International Location Safety (ILS), which will see the company integrate ILS’s enhanced risk management services into its offering.
ILS specialises in risk management services for humanitarian and academic purposes, including duty of care benchmark reviews, destination analysis and risk assessment, as well as training programmes and GPS personal tracking for high-risk travel. Key Travel offers pre, post and in-trip risk support services, including 24/7 emergency support, travel incident management and a range of briefings, tracking, alerts and communication services.
John O’Sullivan, group marketing director at Key Travel, said: “Improving risk management and fulfilling employer duty of care responsibilities has become a major priority for our customers, particularly in the UK academic sector, where the activities of our universities become ever-more international. We rightly focus on risks surrounding travel, but our customers are asking for broader support and we feel ILS has the right expertise, experience and products to meet their needs.”
George Shaw, MD at ILS, added: “For too long now travel management and associated risks have been considered in isolation. We believe that bringing travel management and security risk management together is a logical and very important step that will enable NGOs and universities to better understand and fulfil their duty of care obligations. We are delighted to be working with Key Travel to support their clients around the world to better protect their travellers.”
