GMT Jumps Four Spots on Travel Weekly’s 2020 Power List
27th August 2020
Global Marine Travel (GMT) heads into its second year on the Travel Weekly Power List as a high-valued Travel Management Company within the Maritime Industry, earning its new stripes at #43 in 2020 over #47 in 2019.
GMT credits its new ranking with a banner year in 2019 as it went through a strategic merger under its new parent company, V.Group, a reorganization of balanced services and pricing for the internal V.Ships fleet, and invested more development dollars into GMT’s unique online portal for the cruise-only agency community, CruiseLink, which alone grossed the company $30 million in 2019.
In addition to GMT’s round-the-clock customer service and dedicated support teams, new marketing and innovations continue to launch moving forward, including a newly redesigned website, the launch of their latest B2B product Fly2C, where in-house travel arrangers can search and book flights for their own ship’s crew through a desktop, smartphone or tablet, and further agency acquisitions such as Argo Marine Travel in Greece.
Travel Weekly surveyed companies with a minimum of $100 million in travel sales certified by a company’s owner, CEO or CFO. Sales were defined as gross sales of travel products worldwide, for leisure or business travel. Participating companies were required to verify at least 15 percent of total sale volume was generated nationally.
Looking ahead as travel continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, GMT will continue to drive operational efficiencies under a strong executive leadership team, further implementation of digital technologies for our customers, and a strategic network of globally stationed travel experts supported by a highly skilled centralized service center model.Back to News
