The multi-year agreement with the medical and travel security services company will give CWT’s customers pre-travel advice and medical and security assistance while travelling abroad and help to manage employee travel risk.

David Moran, executive vice president, global marketing & enterprise strategy at CWT, said: "Safety and security is a crucial part of CWT’s service to clients.

"Through our agreement with International SOS we will strengthen our existing offer by giving clients access to industry-leading medical and travel security services.

"Our mission is to empower travel and security managers with the necessary insight and control, and help companies ensure employee safety and well-being."

The new service will initially be available in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the US and the UK.

In June, Carlson acquired JPMorgan Chase & Co’s (JMPMC) reminaing 45% stake in Carlson Wagonlit Travel for an undisclosed sum.
