From Sochi and Glasgow to Nanjing, Conceptum Sport Logistics puts sport on the move

 

Frankfurt/Nanjing, July 22, 2014 – All roads lead to Nanjing may as well be the motto of German logistics company Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) From August 16, the Chinese city is hosting the Second Summer Youth Olympic Games for young athletes from around the world (www.nanjing2014.org). On top of organizing the journeys of numerous teams and shipping their equipment, the German cultural project logistics company has been tasked with transporting the time keeping devices. With a number of athletes and their equipment making the journey to the Chinese metropolis of Nanjing from the Olympic city of Sochi, not to mention the many teams setting off from the Commonwealth Games, the containers carrying the equipment will travel to China from Russia and Scotland as well as from countless other countries around the world. “The equipment belonging to the sportsmen and women will be handled with the utmost care, as it is sacred to each and every athlete. For this reason, we can’t just treat it like we would more everyday freight. Furthermore, for logistical reasons, the sports items are temporarily stored at the venues of previous sporting events before being brought to another competition site, hence the multitude of transportation routes to Nanjing,” says Sebastian Stahl, managing director of Conceptum Sport Logistics.

 

Almost 4,000 athletes between 15 and 18 years old

In contrast to the Olympic Games, the approximately 4,000 young sportsmen and women being sent to Nanjing by the world’s 204 National Olympic Committees (NOC) are no more than 18 years of age. 70 athletes are travelling to the event from Germany alone. The competition not only includes the 28 disciplines that will feature at the Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016, but will also give the young athletes the chance to take part in more unusual sports. In addition to mixed-gender team sports, the games will include showcase events that are not normally included in the Olympics, such as sport climbing, skateboarding and wushu. The main focus of these games is on youth development and conveying the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect.

 

Shanghai is the hub for Conceptum Sport Logistics

To overcome all the logistics challenges it faces, the company, which is headquartered in Mörfelden-Walldorf near Frankfurt airport, has at its fingertips its own global logistics network, including an office in Shanghai, which is China’s logistics hub. Freight transported by both air and sea is handled in the city, which, with more than 20 million inhabitants, is one of the largest in the world. Even the harbor can be spoken of in superlatives, as with a container capacity of 31.74 million TEUs, it is the largest container transshipment point in the world. 537 million metric tons of goods have been transported through Shanghai as a result. “Our shipments of sports equipment may only be a drop in the ocean compared to this amount but they’re still extremely important. For this reason, we personally accompany the containers on as many routes as possible to rule out any risks,” explains Sebastian Stahl from Conceptum Sport Logistics.

FIS logistics partner Conceptum Sport Logistics to attend 49th FIS Congress

 

Official congress of the International Ski Federation (FIS) to take place in Barcelona

 

Frankfurt/Barcelona, June 4, 2014 – The German cultural project logistics company Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) has been the official partner of the International Ski Federation (FIS – www.fis-ski.com) since 2013. The federation’s 49th International Ski Congress is set to take place in Barcelona at the start of June this year. Competitions aside, the event is one of the highlights in the winter sports calendar and has already been hosted four times in Spain in collaboration with the Royal Spanish Winter Sports Federation (RFEDI – www.rfedi.es). The Ski congress is playing an extremely important role for the future of ski sports - especially regarding the development of the FIS disciplines and the strategic direction of the FIS, with all its facets, being successful now and also in the following years in a modern and innovative way. Furthermore the venues of the FIS World Championships for 2018/2019 will be defined.

 

Conceptum Sport Logistics is taking part in the congress in Barcelona as the official logistics partner of FIS and FIS Travel Service AG. Last year, the International Ski Federation put its logistics processes for Freestyle and Snowboard World Championships into the hands of CSL. The partnership with the logistics company, which is based near Frankfurt, has been confirmed for the foreseeable future, after the deal was sealed during the IF Forum attended by international sports federations in Lausanne. The challenging logistics requirements of the International Ski Federation cover all events in the field of cross-country skiing, ski jumping, Nordic combined, alpine skiing, freestyle and snowboarding.

 

Conceptum Sport Logistics has also been working with FIS’s own travel agency, FIS Travel Service AG, since last year. “The partnership has already been put to the test, notably during the Games in Sochi. As logistics specialists, we take transportation just as seriously as athletes take competitions. Instead of ending once the goods or athletes are on the road, our work isn’t done until they reach their final destinations!” says Sebastian Stahl, managing director of CSL. The company, which has subsidiaries around the world, specialises in finding solutions to the challenges of transporting sports and team equipment to global competition sites for both winter sports and a host of other disciplines.
