disruptions to the assignment. 


The Worldcue EXPAT package includes:

iJET provides real-time travel alerts and continuously updated country and
city information in 10 categories including safety & security, health,
transportation, cultural awareness, legal concerns and local laws for over
180 countries and 268 cities.


“We designed Worldcue EXPAT to meet the unique needs of corporate
expatriates.  This proactive risk management approach warns expatriates of
changing conditions, such as civil unrest, transit strikes, severe weather
or terrorist activity, enabling them to avoid issues before they become
problems”, says Bruce McIndoe, CEO of iJET Travel Intelligence.


Prudential Relocation, a leading provider of global mobility services, will
offer the new Worldcue EXPAT service as part of every international
relocation package. “Local safety and security is a constant concern for
employees relocating internationally,” advises John O`Connell, vice
president, Prudential Relocation. “The service offered by iJET helps provide
peace of mind to these employees and their families.”
