Primark has chosen
TripActions as its travel management partner.
The retailer, part of the Associated
British Foods group, operates nearly 400 stores in the UK, Ireland, Spain,
Portugal, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, France, Italy, Slovenia,
Poland and the US.
The Primark division made profits of £362
million on revenues of £5.9 billion in 2020, despite the closure of its stores
due to Covid-19.
Primark has a goal of reducing
greenhouse gas emissions by greater than 30 per cent by 2030 and, pre-pandemic, has cut its scope
3 carbon emissions, which includes business travel, by around 30 per cent in
just two years.
CEO, Ariel Cohen said. “The desire from enterprise companies to enjoy at scale
a modern travel and expense solution has been fantastic, and I couldn’t be
happier that more and more European travellers are getting to experience the
consumer-grade UX that has made TripActions so popular with business travellers
in the US.”
TripActions, which has today unveiled
the appointment of former ITM and Fello CEO Simone Buckley as its new vice president of marketing
for the EMEA region, has also picked up the travel account of global research
and education publisher Springer Nature and will manage its
worldwide corporate travel programme.
“Woven together with our rail, air, hotel and car inventory, the
unified platform and experience provided by TripActions is quickly becoming the
solution-of-choice for Europe-based companies,” said Danny Finkel, the company’s
chief travel officer.
