World Sailing, the governing body, has signed up international logistics company Kuehne+Nagel as a global logistics partner in a three-year agreement.

The deal sees Kuehne+Nagel become the preferred logistics partner for World Sailing’s Member National Authorities (MNAs) and all World Sailing authorized events.

As part of the tie-up, Kuehne+Nagel will handle the transportation of sailing equipment, boats, and other resources.

Additionally, Kuehne+Nagel will support World Sailing’s Sustainability Agenda 2030 goals by providing visibility and full carbon emissions reporting through its myKN platform. World Sailing, its partners, MNAs, class associations and sailors will also be able to choose alternative fuel solutions to reduce their carbon emissions.

David Graham, World Sailing chief executive, has said: “We are delighted to welcome Kuehne+Nagel as our official logistics partner. This partnership represents a significant opportunity to combine world leading logistics support for international sailing events with sustainable practice and efficiency.

“Both organizations share an aligned vision for creating a more sustainable supply chain which will enhance the logistical efficiency of our events, support sailors and make a significant contribution to World Sailing’s sustainability goals, while also helping to develop the sport.”
