TRANSPORTATION, TRAVEL AND TOURISM

Transportation, travel and tourism have undergone fundamental changes in the past decade. In the 1990's it was still a sector of small and medium sized companies with low technological content. By the end of the century, a wave of mergers and acquisitions, the rise of industrial standards and client expectations, and the establishment of Internet communications have had a major impact on the industry.
