German Olympic Sports Confederation Names DB Schenker as Official Team Partner for London
Comprehensive service and intelligent logistics for top performance
(Berlin/Düsseldorf, April 24, 2012) At the presentation of the official uniforms for the German teams at the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Summer Games, the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) honored Schenker Deutschland AG with a certificate which named the company co-partner and official logistics partner of the German Olympic team for London 2012. “The DOSB counts on top performance, not only in the field of sports, but also in logistics. That is why it is such a great honor for us, as a provider of sports logistics, that the organizers have once again shown their confidence in DB Schenker as logistics partner for the 2012 Summer Games,” commented Christian Schultze, Head of DB SCHENKERsportsevents at Schenker Deutschland AG, on receipt of the certificate at the convention center in Düsseldorf on April 24, 2012.
With a range of services for the 2012 Olympics, the logistics experts at DB SCHENKERsportsevents will again ensure that the entire equipment of the German Olympic team – whether sports baggage, the materials required for training and the actual events, or even the medical kit for the teams – reaches its exact destination in the Olympic Village. To make sure everything runs smoothly, the specialists behind the scenes at DB Schenker will provide the full logistics spectrum for Germany’s top athletes: from planning land transport and airfreight shipments to material handling right through to distribution to the different parts of the Olympic Village and competition venues, all geared to meet the requirements of mega sports events. As logistics partner of the German House in London 2012, the DB Schenker experts are also responsible for supplying the complete logistics services at this central meeting point for the German athletes, sponsors, journalists and politicians in London. In cooperation with their British colleagues, they will plan and coordinate the transportation of furniture, security equipment, office supplies, promotion materials and even German beer to the Museum of London Docklands, where the German House will serve as hospitality center from July 26 to August 11, 2012.
DB Schenker has traditionally been highly committed to Olympic events. The logistics specialist was named official transportation company as early as 1972, when Munich hosted the Olympic Games. Since the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Schenker Deutschland AG has regularly provided services for the Olympic teams and the German House.
