The travel business is important for the Norwegian Armed Forces’ operations. We are proud to be able to contribute to such an important mission as the Norwegian Armed Forces has, says director of sales and business development in Berg-Hansen, Gunnar Gunnarsen.
The Berg-Hansen contract was chosen mainly for its digital services and the value Berg-Hansen adds as a strategic partner for the Norwegian Armed Forces.
Berg-Hansen delivered a solid offer, with good solutions for the Norwegian Armed Forces’ travel business. We look forward to further streamlining of our travel business through the collaboration with Berg-Hansen, says Espen G. Bakke, Category Manager Travel in the Norwegian Armed Forces Logistics Organization.
Norwegian Armed Forces’ overall goal with the agreement is that the individual traveller and the sector’s travel bookers, in an efficient and safe manner, will be able to perform almost all tasks related to travel management on their own. The defence sector has a very high online share today and it is a stated goal that this should continue to be as high or higher.
We look forward to starting the collaboration and working with such professional customers as Norwegian Armed Forces.
In these times, it is perhaps more important than ever for Norwegian companies to have a company that can not only contribute on the consulting side, but also adapt simple and safe solutions for travellers in general. The investment we have made in recent years has been important for us, in order to now, be the optimal travel partner, says Gunnarsen.
The contract has a duration of 5 years.
