Allianz Partners, a global leader in assistance and insurance solutions, has joined the Corporate Partnership Board of the International Transport Forum (ITF).  Allianz Partners and the ITF will work together on mobility innovation and digitalisation.

Among its clients are airlines and travel operators, automotive manufacturers, sharing economy companies, governments, intergovernmental organisations and NGOs. The company has more than 19,400 employees and operates in over 75 countries.

Allianz Partners has innovation centres for each of its areas of expertise.
