Rio2016: 75 tons of equipment by charter from Frankfurt to Rio de Janeiro

 
Frankfurt / Rio de Janeiro, July 10, 2016 – While sports enthusiasts are looking forward to the finals of the European Soccer Championship in Paris today, the employees of the German cultural and event logistician Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) are counting down to the first of several charter airplanes to take off from Frankfurt to Rio de Janeiro to deliver equipment for this year’s next major sporting event.

 

In this case, the special challenge of the charter handling was the very tight schedule: The majority of the 75-ton cargo was only delivered to the warehouse of the logistics company on July 7 while all security proceedings, formalities as well as the setup of the 36 containers and pallets needed to be completed by the planned departure on July 10 at 5:20 am.

 

Beforehand, the cargo was collected from 15 different suppliers at 30 different loading sites, so that inspecting and checking the delivered material was also given priority first in order to properly initiate any formalities.

 

“Preparing cargo of this magnitude for a charter within just 48 hours requires extreme precision and professionalism on the part of all parties involved. If only one single element is hanging in the balance during the entire work process, this can trip up the entire project”, says Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of CSL.

 

“Picking up the entire equipment from all corners of Europe and taking it to Frankfurt for further processing within this time frame would have been easy per se”, explains Sebastian Stahl “if a number of components had not been in operation and required at another site until shortly before pickup” continues Stahl. “But it is precisely this buzz that makes our job so special.”

 

However, the job won’t end upon landing in Rio de Janeiro. Now comes unloading, customs clearance and storage and/or delivery. Another charter flight will take place on July 17, 2016.

Rio2016: The Countdown is on

 

Athletes, Officials and logisticians alike are ready to get out of the blocks

 

Rio de Janeiro/Frankfurt, June 15, 2016 – While the Olympic Games are still far away for the spectators, the preparations - above all logistically speaking - are already in full swing. For several weeks, the German logistics company Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) has been collecting sports equipment, broadcasting accessories as well as other equipment materials needed on site to take it to Rio de Janeiro.

 “Any materials available and thus plannable beforehand can be taken to Rio de Janeiro in time by ship and scheduled flight”, says Stahl, Managing Director of the cultural sports and event logistician. “For this purpose, meters of packing lists are studied and separated in order to optimize transportation costs for our customers. Any materials not available until the last minute are then transported to their destination with regular charter flights which we provide exclusively for our customers”, continues Stahl. “This approach has been successful at major events in the past”.

 

At the same time, hardly any TV viewer is aware of the volumes that are moved. 30,000 cubic meters of cargo was shipped to Rio de Janeiro by sea alone. Added to this are more than 500 tons by air.

 “A coastal city presents some benefits here for the transportation of large volumes. Customs regulations are the same, however - and it is not uncommon for them to be adventurous in Brazil”, says Sebastian Stahl. The logistical team’s boss is always personally involved - “for months, I have been commuting between Frankfurt, Rio de Janeiro, and the various sites of our customers”, says Stahl.

 

 Long before the first transport missions, storage sites needed to be found, suitable for the safe storage of the sensitive equipment such as timekeeping systems or even catering for the teams. In addition to reliability, trust in the logistician is also decisive for the athletes - for sports equipment is mostly treated like children. For years, the German company has enjoyed the patronage of numerous national Olympic Committees, sports federations and the athletes.

IBSF appoints Conceptum Sport Logistics exclusive logistics partner

 

Frankfurt/Lausanne/Grossgmain, October 07, 2015 – With immediate effect, the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF) has appointed the sports and cultural project logistics expert Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL - www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) its official logistics partner for the international transports of the 2015/2016 season.
