The ground transportation landscape is divided into two worlds.
These providers provide amazing technology, efficient routing, novel forms of transportation and low prices, but might fall short when it comes to SLAs, customer service (they often don’t have call centres), legal compliance and reliability - they are not going to wait for your CEO at the airport when his flight is late.
These providers provide high-quality service with very specific vehicle and SLA guarantees, but may lag when it comes to tech, and quality comes at a price
How does a TMC and a corporate merge these two worlds, when each has their own advantages and downsides? How does a SuperApp incorporate urban mobility in all their destinations and enforce quality control while delivering cheap prices?
The "Mobility in Travel Forum" conference will be held in New York City at the famed Explorers Club - it will be a day of panels and discussions around the intersection of mobility and travel, with the top 50 corporate ground transportation spenders, top rideshare, traditional car services and MaaS players in attendance.
