Travel for Manufacturers

With the economic reliance on manufacturing, the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) anticipates significant and continued growth in business travel. And with a new uptick in travel, manufacturing leaders are turning to travel management companies to support their employees on the road, ensure policy compliance, and streamline expenses and finance functions.

Manufacturing and business travel go hand-in-hand. Across the industry, it is essential to meet with suppliers, tour production plants, see potential retail locations, and meet with customers and prospects. In fact, the GBTA highlights that this industry spends approximately $10 billion annually on project-based travel. As a result, widespread travel is often required for many manufacturers, both across the country and to other parts of the world. Business doesn’t stop and nor does the need to travel.

With travel direction and demands changing frequently, corporate travel programs face some challenging times and realities. As your business travelers take to the roads, rails, and skies, it’s critically important that your travel program is more adaptable than ever before. The new realities of business travel require the right tools and technology for today plus a solid strategy for the future needs of your business and your travelers.

We not only assist with the day-to-day operations of your business travel program but provide 24-hour support for all travelling stakeholders, including CEOs.
