Global Ground Transportation Institute partners for educational content

Posted on September 17, 2019

The Global Ground Transportation Institute (GGTI) announced a new partnership with The LMC Group to create educational content for its members. The LMC Group is an independently-held firm providing a range of consulting services, from hiring and retention to social media and public relations, as well as budgeting, forecasting, and operations.

LMC Founder/CEO Kristen Carroll remarked that she was delighted to launch the partnership because the goals and objectives of GGTI and LMC are so closely aligned.

“For years, we have seen a major shift in ground transportation trends, skewing toward a hybrid of utilization between fields that operated in silos until recently,” said Carroll. “Today’s traveler is looking for a wide range of solutions incorporating convenience, technology, ease of use, and flexibility, and a coordinated effort to connect those industries will prove to be groundbreaking. We are excited to share our knowledge and resources with the global ground transportation audience and to be on the ground floor of this promising new initiative from Bobit Business Media.”

In the coming weeks and months, GGTI members, as well as nonmembers, will see announcements about the planned content and delivery methods. The goal is to release diversified content and host educational events to enable ground transportation companies to learn, grow, and further their success.

GGTI Executive Director Sarah Gazi said she knows that The LMC Group will provide high-value education, tools, and resources to the GGTI membership across all segments.

“Partnering with The LMC Group is truly going to take GGTI's educational content and value to the level we envisioned for GGTI,” said Gazi. “Their expertise, professionalism, and experience in, and understanding of, the transportation industry is an unbelievable asset. I couldn't be more excited to work with them as we build and grow GGTI to help our members in everything they do.”

The Global Ground Transportation Institute (GGTI) was launched in early August 2019 by Bobit Business Media, whose portfolio includes nine magazines, 13 conferences and trade shows, and 11 industry websites specific to ground transportation. Bobit created the group because it saw a need to unify all segments of ground transportation, as many of them face similar challenges and regulations.

The Institute’s purpose is to connect its membership to industry thought-leadership, best practices, education, and networking.
