Carlson Wagonlit Travel gets UK sales boost

Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) revealed its global sales volume for the first half of 2012 was US$15 billion 1, representing a 1 per cent increase compared to the same period in 2011. Transactions also rose 1 per cent to 32.2 million 2 in the first six months of 2012.

Commenting on these results, Douglas Anderson, CWT president and CEO, said: “Our first half performance for 2012 is solid given current economic uncertainty. Our customers are continuing to travel and are looking to manage their travel in a more cost-effective way by getting even greater value for what they spend.”

In the UK, sales volume totalled £627.8 million for the six months of 2012, a 1.6 percent increase compared to the previous year. UK new sales wins have totalled more than £60 million year to date, and corporate client retention has been over 97 per cent.
