Short’s Joins CorpTrav In Radius Expansion

By | January 9, 2018

Radius Travel this week announced that CorpTrav joined its ranks. The announcement comes just as Short’s Travel Management also became part of the agency network. Based in the midwestern United States, the two travel management companies add to nine pre-existing U.S. Radius members. The largest is Travel and Transport, based in Omaha, Neb.

Headquartered in Waterloo, Iowa, Short’s plays in the sports and university sectors, as well as corporate and government. It previously had been an HRG affiliate.

CorpTrav claims to be one the biggest woman-owned TMCs in the United States. It is located near Chicago and has 150 employees.

The two additions follow some Radius churn in North America. In the past year it added Brickell Travel Management in South Florida, Luxe Travel Management in Irvine, Calif., and Maritime Travel in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Also in 2017, according to The Beat, Milwaukee-based Adelman Travel left Radius in favor of the BCD Travel Affiliates program.

Meanwhile, GlobalStar network member Direct Travel and Radius affiliate Vision Travel in Canada agreed to merge last year. At the time, the companies said they planned to continue supporting clients using both networks.
