There’s an African proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” We in Shipitwise are going far, so we have just launched our service in Travelport Marketplace (NYSE: TVPT). It is a travel commerce platform providing distribution, technology, payment and other solutions for the travel and tourism industry.
Shipitwise is the first Estonian company that offers its service in the Travelport Marketplace, as well as the first to offer door-to-door baggage as a service in the Travelport platform. Shipitwise will be the only door-to-door baggage service in Travelport beacause of an exclusive contract between the two.
You can check our product placed in the marketplace here.
”I love to work with the companies like Shipitwise, because they bring another level of diversity to the product portfolio. And all of these solutions are assisting our customers, travel agents, to find additional revenue stream, unique service that they can offer to their customers and ultimately find themselves against their competitors. I am really excited to bring partners like Shipitwise” – Kathy Hodges, Strategic Partnerships & Alliances Manager EMEA, Travelport GDS
