CWT wins renewal of EDF Travel Management Contract until 2018

Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) has announced that it will continue to manage travel for EDF, a global leader in the energy industry with 167,000 employees across 25 countries, for the next four years, following an extensive RFP process.

CWT UK & Ireland has been servicing the EDF account since 2007, and part of the recent win included the Nuclear Energy Implant in Barnwood, Gloucester.

After being awarded the contract, CWT was commended for its true understanding of the client’s needs, the quality of service offered by its Traveller Services division, and its innovative and flexible approach to future service configurations.

Bertrand Mabille, executive vice president, France & Mediterranean countries, CWT, added, “We’re thrilled that EDF has recognised the flexibility of our proposal, our high sense of customer focus and our innovation when awarding this business. Our clients are at the heart of everything we do, and we look forward to building on our already strong relationship and developing bespoke solutions to drive EDF’s savings objectives.”

The new contract will see CWT continue to manage the EDF Global Travel Programme in France, Belgium, Italy and the UK & Ireland, expanding its footprint throughout 2014. EDF has selected a single GDS, Amadeus, to fulfill transactions from one International Service Center, based in Saint Etienne, France. The unique and innovative solution is not only technology driven but also highlights the strength of CWT’s customer service which will continue to offer travel consultants who service offline EDF transactions  – highlighting CWT’s harmonious combination of technology and service.
