ATPI and S5 work together to deliver seamless service for crew travel managers

Global travel management business the ATPI Group has developed a new working agreement with international port agency S5 Agency World to enhance their seamless service offered to clients within the shipping industry.

The agreement sees clients of the ATPI Group enjoy an enhanced and more integrated approach to their crew travel arrangements. This means that all elements of travel for those joining ships are handled in via one technology platform ATPI CrewHub, including management of any taxis or launches required to reach vessels plus specific Immigration arrangements. It is the first time that such a comprehensive online tool has been available through an international travel management company.  

Peter Rieder, global head of energy and shipping sales, the ATPI Group, explains: “Our business has a long tradition of specialising in complex and highly individual itineraries. By adding the additional services of S5 to our mix we have introduced a very comprehensive option for those whose business is moving goods and people at sea. As well as being able to save costs, the data management between the ATPI Group and S5 also delivers enhanced efficiencies.  By working directly with crew managers our collective teams are able to handle all aspects of getting the right crew to the right vessel, in line with rota and skills requirements. We’re really excited about the opportunities this brings to our collective clients.”   

ATP Instone, the specialist shipping, energy and offshore business within the ATPI Group, is currently rolling out the new service around the world via the ATPI CrewHub technology platform.  

Jason Berman, senior vice president, international, S5 adds:   “It is essential to any shipping business that crew, goods and services are able to join the vessel on time and that nothing delays operations running on-schedule. By ensuring that the port services we offer work hand-in-hand with the travel management activity, ship and crew managers receive a fully integrated service.  Together we provide a comprehensive solution managing both the air travel and port logistics through one integrated service provider allows for visibility of cost and through Management Information reports we aid businesses in making informed decisions that can further improve their cost structures and processes.”  

The ATPI Group has over 70 offices worldwide, and has successful operations in corporate travel, shipping and energy travel, corporate event management and online travel technology.  

S5 is the fastest growing global port agency in the world with 350 owned offices and manages over 75,000 port calls around the world each year.
