18 COUNTRIES, 26 CITIES IN 23 DAYS

THE GROUND TRANSPORT CHALLENGE

REQUIREMENT

Corporate Blue (an experienced Corporate Travel Management company based in Australia) contracted Tristar to provide ground transportation for their client Scott Fraser - Managing Director of SuitPack for his epic multi country sales trip. This unbelievably demanding itinerary covered 26 cities in 23 days with over 50 journeys.

THE CHALLENGES

DEMANDING SCHEDULE – With a crammed timetable of back-to-back meetings in each city, the consequences of Mr Fraser not reaching his flight in time would have a major knock-on effect for the rest of his trip.

MULTI CITIES AND COUNTRIES – With over 50 transfers taking place in 26 different cities, the coordination of the travel schedule required a complete and thorough plan for each location. As the trip started in the Far East and ended up in the USA, it was imperative that our international team used their local knowledge of each area, customs and languages to ensure that the client was kept on schedule and had a smooth trip.

THE SOLUTION

Utilising our global network and the experience of our international team, Tristar meticulously planned Mr Fraser’s ground transport itinerary to ensure that at each destination, from Tokyo to Toronto and everywhere in between, he was met on time by a smart, presentable, and well trained chauffeur who knew exactly where Mr Fraser needed to be and by what time.

At the same time, the Tristar team regularly updated Corporate Blue so they knew exactly when Mr Fraser had been collected and dropped off at each destination.

Ground transportation can often be overlooked when planning a schedule such as Mr Fraser’s. However it is the glue that holds all of the travel plans together and without a reliable, first class chauffeur service, even the best laid plans can come unstuck with potentially far reaching consequences.

THE OUTCOME

Mr Fraser completed his demanding schedule without a hitch. Tristar thrived on the challenge of Mr Fraser’s hectic schedule and our global network positioned us perfectly to deliver first class ground transport in all cities required. Corporate Blue had one trusted company and one point of contact to plan and manage their entire travel itinerary, no matter how complicated that might be.

WHAT CORPORATE BLUE SAID…

“I am so glad that I did trust Tristar with Mr Fraser’s transfers! With the marathon trip that Mr Fraser was doing, it was imperative that everything went like clockwork and I am happy to say that Tristar made my job so much easier.

The service that I experienced as the booker was phenomenal! Nothing was too hard and everything ran smoothly and to plan. I was also very impressed and delighted with the feedback emails that I received for every single transfer that assured me that each transfer went smoothly. Mr Fraser was also very happy with the on ground service.

I have recommended Tristar to all of my colleagues and friends within the industry, plus anyone else that may be considering transfers.”
