Overall global T&E spending volume was $29 million in 2020, about 50 percent of which occurred in North America. While the pandemic drove a dramatic decline in travel activity, it didn’t stop Takeda’s planned switch to BCD Travel as the company’s single global travel management provider. BCD replaced 30-plus global TMCs the company had used previously during an implementation period that took place over the first half of 2020. Takeda’s other travel accomplishments during the year included creating a travel decision tree and return to travel video and infographic and completing a revamp of global travel program marketing and collateral materials. The company currently is at work on implementing a digital travel assistant using Roadmap technology.No major travel policy changes took place in 2020, nor are any in the works for 2021 beyond an enhanced focus on traveler safety and supplier cleanliness as travel resumes.
