After Rio is before Pyeongchang

 

First official luge world cup to take place at the future Olympic site

 

Frankfurt/Oberhof/Pyeongchang, Feb. 14, 2017 – When the global elite in the sport of luge has its international training week on the new ice track in Pyeongchang this week, the company Conceptum Sport Logistics (www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com), specializing in cultural project logistics, has already delivered its best performance.

 

In just 48 hours of transit time, the company managed to transport the entire material of 250 athletes after the conclusion of the last world cup this past weekend in Oberhof from there to Pyeongchang in time for the start of the international training week. Immediately after the trainings, the highly anticipated first luge world cup will take place next weekend at the Alpensia Sliding Center.

 

“For us, the Olympics are more important than the games per se: for in the time between the games, we are preparing the transports, laying the foundation for the logistics on site and make plans for the challenges ahead of us”, describes Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of Conceptum Sport Logistics. The company headquartered near Frankfurt am Main, Germany, takes care of the logistics on behalf of numerous national and international federations as well as various Olympic committees and their athletes.

 

Conceptum Sport Logistics is already on site in Pyeongchang, and the preparations for the next Olympic Winter Games are in full swing. With the first test runs for try-out events, the infrastructure has already proven that just-in-time transportation to the sports venues works smoothly here as well. Since 2015, Conceptum Sport Logistics has already completed more than 150 successful transportation projects to the competition sites of the next Olympic Winter Games. The arrangements beforehand are decisive in order to go through all processes and to know about uncertainties such as red tape. In addition to the transportation of sports gear and team equipment, the logistics specialist also takes care of hotel and travel arrangements - the team around Managing Director Sebastian Stahl has an integrated standard.

Conceptum Sport Logistics opens site in South Korea

 

Sports logistician prepares for Pyeongchang 2018

 

Frankfurt/Seoul, January 15, 2017 – The sports world will look to South Korea in the coming years - the Olympic Winter Games 2018 will take place there. The company Conceptum Sport Logistics (www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) specializing in cultural project logistics is already opening a subsidiary in Seoul now. In close proximity to the venues, the company will be by the athletes’ side when it comes to the safe and timely transporting of their sports equipment and gear. From now on, all sports federations will also be able to rely on the know-how directly from South Korea. Conceptum Sport Logistics already assisted the organizing committee last year in all logistics for the homologation of the new competition sites. Hereby, the compliance for the Games in 2018 is tested. Further test events are planned.

“Such test events are standard prior to global events such as the Olympic Games. This is the only way to find errors in the stadiums’ concepts, and naturally we are able to test the logistical processes as well”, explains Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of Conceptum Sport Logistics.

 

In doing so, it is the company’s goal to allow athletes to fully focus on the event - without worrying about their sports gear. The team equipment, right up to the massage bed, must also go through not only the transportation process but customs procedures as well. The process is complex, says the special logistician, and requires expertise mainly in the international cargo business. “With our employee in South Korea, we guarantee perfect service”, continues Stahl. “We provide complete support. This does require some effort but it more than pays off and enables the athletes to prepare for the events in a stress-free environment”, says Sebastian Stahl. 

German sports logistician services Alpine Skiing World Cups in USA and Canada

 

Conceptum Sport Logistics transports on behalf of various ski federations

 

Frankfurt/Denver/Calgary, December 5, 2016 – With logistics “Made in Germany”, the athletes participating in the FIS Alpine Skiing World Cups for women in Copper Mountain and Killington, USA, and in Lake Louise, Canada, are getting some valuable support. From the end of October until the beginning of December 2016, the skiing equipment and accessories of all female teams from numerous ski federations is being transported. A total of around 12 tons of material is first collected by the experienced logistician from all corners of Europe in order to transport it to the US by air freight on schedule. After the respective event, a truck takes it to the next venue in order to deliver the entire equipment again in time for the first training run. Following the World Cup in Lake Louise, all the gear is delivered back to Europe as requested.

 

“For our team, sports logistics is a physical challenge as well - after all, it is also about winning a race”, says Santino Hormuth, Project Manager of Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL). “Only if we prepare our race well, run it to perfection and deliver the equipment to the competition track just in time, can the teams we service focus on the sport per se!”

 

The personal service by the logistics team takes place right by the track - for it is this all-round service that allows the athletes to fully focus on their competitive disciplines. Moreover, trust is a decisive factor - to athletes, their sporting equipment is the most important resource in addition to their own physical condition.

 

In addition to the sporting equipment and team gear, CSL has also been engaged to deliver approx. 3 tons of marketing materials as well as approx. 1.5 tons of TV broadcasting equipment. “Be it sporting equipment or cameras”, says Hormuth, “it does not make an essential difference to us. Perfect planning is the key criterion either way. Regional expertise and knowing the international formalities are the alpha and omega. This includes customs and loading formalities which may differ especially in international transportation”, continues the Project Manager.

 

Conceptum Sport Logistics is therefore already preparing for the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang 2018. With their own office on site, the specialized company takes responsibility close to the track - a key criterion according to Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of Conceptum Sport Logistics: “Proximity counts for much for us. This is the only way we can guarantee our athletes to be there at any time and to really establish a seamless logistical chain.” Meanwhile, this also includes everything in terms of sporting equipment - from the teams’ accommodation all the way to flight or rental car booking, the service rendered by the Frankfurt experts is seamlessly tailored to the requirements.

IBSF and Conceptum Sport Logistics:

A powerful team

 

 

Frankfurt/Lausanne/Grossgmain, November 24, 2016 – Never change a running system – This is how you might describe the cooperation that has already been going on since 2006 between the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF) and the sports and cultural project logistician Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL - www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com).

 

“With Conceptum Logistics, we have a partner who transports our very special equipment from one venue to the next quickly and reliably. We are pleased that we have been able to extend the partnership for another two years”, explains Ivo Ferriani, President of IBSF.

 

When we travel across the Atlantic to Whistler this coming weekend, where the competitions continue next weekend, incidents such as snow storms, traffic jams or trucks which are not roadworthy and the like must not impact the race schedule. It is therefore always essential to plan for any eventualities before they occur.

 

“Of course it is a great advantage if you have already known each other for more than 10 years and therefore work together very smoothly”, says Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of the logistics service provider. Year after year, we look forward to supporting the world cup series of the bobsleigh and skeleton athletes and to providing our service to make sure that training sessions take place in a timely manner and that the equipment is transported and delivered completely and in good time”, continues Stahl.

 

Despite all the routine, we are still faced with special challenges time and again: new venues, such as the Alpensia Sliding Center in Pyeongchang for the Olympic Winter Games 2018 or tight schedules always require most careful planning or specific solutions.

Preparations for Pyeongchang 2018 in full swing

 

Logistical dress rehearsal for the Olympic Winter Games 2018 in South Korea

 

Pyeongchang /Frankfurt, November 01, 2016 – Numerous visits by employees of Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) in South Korea to prepare the transports for the test runs in the newly built ice channel have been taking place for some time already. In the second half of October, the big moment finally came: CSL transported all bobsleigh, skeleton and luge models to Seoul via air freight for the test runs. From the airport there, they were taken 3 hours by car to the Alpensia Sliding Center in Pyeongchang.

 

As the winter sports season is already in full swing, the experts of Conceptum Sport Logistics only had 48 hours to transport 5000 kg of equipment from ten countries from door to door. Special challenges such as infrastructural conditions, e.g. downhill access roads, non-existing roads blocked due to construction sites etc. must be carefully mapped out and planned for. The smooth cooperation with customs authorities on site is also a fundamental part of a functioning logistics chain, in particular for time-sensitive sports events.

 

“The earlier we are involved in the planning of such events, the better we can coordinate and prepare all logistically important details with all parties involved”, says Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of the cultural sports and event logistician. “The conditions on site always play an especially important role for such major transport operations”, continues Stahl. “We are used to becoming active on site as early as 2 years before the event takes place and know that the first shipments are delivered during the ongoing site work as the first test competitions take place during that time already.”

 

With the return transport of the entire equipment completed within 48 hours as well, however, things won’t calm down at CSL. More transportation projects to perform the test runs for five other disciplines for the Olympic Winter Games 2018 are already in the final planning phase.

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.

Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of the cultural sports and event logistician Conceptum Sport Logistics, is pleased with the new milestone in the company’s history: “We are offering athletes exactly what they need: trustworthy logistics provided by a complete team.

Frankfurt/Innsbruck-Igls, Februar 08, 2016 – the IBSF Bobsleigh and Skeleton World Championships will take place in Innsbruck-Igls from February 8 through 21.

The bolides of winter sports will be assisted with comprehensive logistics from near Frankfurt - the headquarters of Conceptum Sport Logistics are not far from the airport.

However, preparations for the next big event in PyeongChang in the year 2018 are already in full swing as well: “We are already preparing for PyeongChang. In early March 2016, the initial test runs will take place there on the newly built bobsleigh track. We will accompany these logistically on behalf of the organizing committee”, says Stahl.  

 

First in the pipeline, however, is the Bobsleigh and Skeleton World Cup in Innsbruck-Igls and then the final round in Königssee, before moving on to PyeongChang. “One thing is always the same”, says Stahl, “our seamless logistics are decisive for the athletes and teams to be able to focus on their training and the event, and that is our primary concern.”

This time is special as the entire World Cup circus is traveling on to the next venue in Sochi together. The chartered aircraft will thus not only transport the equipment and luggage of the athletes and coaches from 14 nations, but also 120 passengers. They are looking forward to the remake of the charter flight which was arranged by CSL in 2014 for the Olympic Games, giving the teams additional preparation and training time on site.

 

Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of the cultural event logistician Conceptum Sport Logistics, is happy to add another building block to the company’s history: “We are offering athletes exactly what they need: trustworthy logistics provided by a complete team.

For more than ten years, Conceptum Sport Logistics has worked for numerous teams and federations in almost all disciplines on the five continents as a logistical partner - in 2015, they covered over 50 million kilometers with sports equipment on board.

A special challenge in the bobsleigh and skeleton transports is presented by the weather conditions as well as the sometimes very tight schedule.

International Shooting Sport Federation gives away places for RIO 2016

 

Frankfurt/Gabala, 6 August 2015 – Today, the ISSF World Cup in shooting kicks off in Gabala, Azerbaijan with more than 1,100 athletes from 90 countries. Shooters from all over the world will participate in 15 ISSF (International Shooting Sport Federation) competitions in the next Olympic Games 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. 34 quota places are foreseen, which the athletes will compete for in the World Cup.

 

For the competitions to take place, the German cultural project logistician Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) transported the equipment needed for the event to Gabala in advance. It is with the greatest precision that the experts on the CSL team work on these transports, which are not logistics as usual due to the regulations to be observed and the sensitivity of the event equipment.

 

Before the actual transport to Azerbaijan could be planned, the equipment had to be collected from various sites all over the world, with parts of the shipment coming from Rome and even Acapulco and Larnaca. Last but not least, the material was used at an event in Munich before it was then taken to Gabala.

Conceptum Logistics goes Baku

 

Frankfurt/Baku, June 12, 2015 – For the first time this year, the European Games with sport disciplines such as track and field, swimming, basketball, rowing, table tennis and more than 20 other disciplines will take place in Baku. Athletes from 50 nations will compete for medals in Azerbaijan’s capital from June 12 through 28. With approx. 20,000 kg of equipment, the German cultural project logistician Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) will supply the entire time-keeping equipment, without which the games would not be possible.

As early as in mid-May, the first delivery was taken to Baku by airplane. It was followed by three more partial deliveries, which were made available at the competition’s sites in Azerbaijan just in time. One logistical treat then was the return transport in one lot.

 “Time-critical or particularly extensive transports always pose a special challenge, which we love to take on. Time and again, we benefit from our years of experience in this field”, says Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of Conceptum Sport Logistics. “In doing so, being well prepared and closely monitoring the implementation goes without saying!”

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 3, 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.

From Russia to Glasgow: The logistics of transporting sports equipment from the 2014 Games in Sochi

Next stop on the world tour is the 2014 Commonwealth Games

 

Frankfurt/Sochi/Glasgow, May 8, 2014 – The 2014 Winter Games in Sochi may already feel like a lifetime ago to the sporting world but the logistics of the removal process is far from over. 250 metric tons of sports and team equipment were transported to Sochi by the German project logistics company Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) alone, and the experts at CSL are currently sending some of that equipment on a new journey to Glasgow, where the Commonwealth Games (www.thecgf.com) are set to take place in just a few weeks. In Scotland from July 23, 6,500 athletes from 70 nations will compete and battle for victory in 17 different types of sport.

 

On top of transporting sports equipment from Sochi, the Frankfurt-based company is shipping sports goods from numerous other countries to Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city. Various sports teams, such as the National Olympic Committees, have chosen to place their trust in CSL’s “Made in Germany” logistics services. “The Games in Russia were an enormous challenge for our team and kept us on our toes for months. But with a vast amount of freight already making its way to Scotland by air and sea as we speak, we haven’t had any time to catch our breath,” states Sebastian Stahl, managing director of Conceptum Sport Logistics. CSL has also been given the task of transporting the time keeping devices from Switzerland to Glasgow. This is no mean feat, as alongside the athletes’ kit, they are the most sensitive pieces of equipment needed at the event.

 

The Commonwealth Games are an international sporting event with a rich history dating back to 1911, when the first competition took place. Every four years, the best athletes from across the countries in the Commonwealth of Nations gather to compete in a variety of sports. The idea first took root in 1891, when the Englishman J. Astley Cooper wrote a newspaper article proposing a festival featuring sport, the military and literature, with the aim of bringing together the members of the British Empire in games that were to be more friendly than competitive.

The inaugural British Empire Games were hosted by Canada in 1930 and since this date the Games have been held as a purely sporting event. In addition to Olympic disciplines, the program also includes sports that are only widely played in the countries of the Commonwealth, such as badminton, squash, cricket, hockey and lawn bowls.

Conceptum Sport Logistics to attend SportAccord Convention 2014 in Belek

German logistics specialist supports athletes around the globe

 

Frankfurt/Belek, March 20, 2014 – SportAccord Convention (www.sportaccordconvention.com) is one of the most important events to take place behind the scenes of the competitive sporting world. This year, it is being held in Belek near Antalya from April 6–11 and is set to welcome the logistics company Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) as an exhibitor. Taking place shortly after the Winter Games in Sochi (www.sochi2014.com), the convention will, above all, give the sports industry an opportunity to reflect on the games and prepare for up-and-coming events. Sebastian Stahl, the managing director of Conceptum Logistics, and his team rank among the unsung heroes of the sports competitions and will be on hand at the event at booth number 90 to talk logistics.

 

Stahl’s logistics professionals transported more than 250 metric tons of sports equipment and materials to Sochi alone, establishing a logistics chain that carried the goods by sea and air over several months. Hosted close to the world’s sporting centers, in locations such as Lausanne, Seoul, St. Petersburg and Beijing, SportAccord Convention has been bringing together members of the sports industry since 2003. The German project logistics company CSL is using the event to showcase itself and its range of services. Represented worldwide, a personal service and door-to-door deliveries are at the heart of CSL’s work. “With an entire competition resting on the condition of their sports equipment and the reliability of a logistics company, it’s not surprising that athletes are extremely demanding customers. We transport goods as if they belong to us,” says Sebastian Stahl from Conceptum Sport Logistics.

 

During the Games in Sochi alone, CSL worked for more than 50 National Olympic Committees and sports associations, an achievement which, according to managing director Stahl, has given it a special standing in the sporting world. More than 6,000 sports experts are expected to attend SportAccord Convention, where forthcoming events will be the main topic on the agenda. One such event is the 2016 Summer Games taking place in Rio de Janeiro, the preparations for which have already begun. “We have our own office in Rio, which means we are on hand to offer local support to athletes and teams and provide the comprehensive logistics solutions needed to take care of their gear and sports equipment,” states Sebastian Stahl from Conceptum Sport Logistics.

Cool Runnings in Sochi 2014: German support helps Jamaica cross the finish line

 

Bob and logistics “Made in Germany” for the Jamaican bobsled team

 

Jamaica/Sochi/Frankfurt, February 21, 2014 – Sochi enjoys a touch of sun, sand and the sound of reggae as Jamaica’s bobsled heroes secured their place on an Olympic ice track starting line for the first time since 2002. The team received a lot of support from Germany along the way. Their carbon-fiber bobsled was made by Franz Wimmer from Traunstein, Bavaria, and the Frankfurt-based event and specialized logistics service provider Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) transported the precious piece of equipment from Jamaica to Sochi. In addition to the Caribbean bobsled team, which was formed in 1988, a further 50 national teams and National Olympic Committees have placed their trust in Sebastian Stahl’s transport experts. Jamaica’s colorful team was above all made famous by the 1993 movie Cool Runnings.

 

While the Jamaican team’s bob arrived on time for the training runs, some of their other equipment, for which Conceptum was not responsible, had gone missing: “That wasn't made in Germany. The athletes took it all in good humor,” says Sebastian Stahl, managing director of Conceptum Sport Logistics. From now on, the German company will transport all of the team’s equipment to avoid such mistakes happening again. This is of vital importance because “the Jamaicans depend on their bob and all of their equipment. They virtually draw lots on who gets to take the bob to bed with them at night!” laughs Stahl, who alongside his team has brought significantly more than 250 metric tons of sports and team equipment to Sochi in recent months. David Vehreschild, the Jamaicans’ German team manager, is happy about the participation of his team and the colorful appearance at the Games. “In the end taking part is everything. As popular underdog the Jamaicans have fully done justice to this motto. We are very interested in continuing and extend the partnership with Conceptum.”

 

The birth of the team destined to become the movie legends of Cool Runnings was inspired by a pushcart derby. American onlookers noticed the strong similarity between the derby and a bobsled race and set about creating a Jamaican team. Many Jamaican athletes were, and indeed still are, excellent sprinters, a quality that is particularly beneficial at the start of the race when the bob has to be given a huge push-start. With the four-man bob competition due to commence on February 22, the Jamaican team is launching its 2014 Winter Olympics campaign in excellent spirits and surrounded by an incredible amount of support.

Sochi 2014: Gold medal for logistics goes to Germany

 

250 metric tons of sports equipment make the games possible – Conceptum Sport Logistics wins gold

 

Sochi/Frankfurt, February 11, 2014 – The first gold medal of the Winter Olympics taking place in the Russian city of Sochi has already been awarded to the German logistics company Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com). The company, which is based near Frankfurt, has transported well over 250 metric tons of sports and team equipment to Russia for 50 national teams and National Olympic Committees. The logistics specialists already began sending Boeing 747 cargo planes and ocean freight containers to the coastal city of Sochi and the competition venues in the snowy climes of Krasnaya Polyana some months ago. In fact, the delivery of a large proportion of the freight could be planned in advance and in some instances, be put into temporary storage in Russia.

 

However, a number of athletes were competing to qualify right up until the last minute. For CSL’s managing director, Sebastian Stahl, this is par for the course: “We personally collect the goods from the athletes, directly from the qualification track. Then, the bobs, or whatever other sports equipment we’re dealing with, are always packed into special containers before setting off on their journey straight to the competition track.” Hardly any TV viewers are actually aware of the sheer amount of freight on the move. The sports and event logistics specialists sent 3,000 cubic meters of freight to Sochi by sea alone. “A coastal city like Sochi provides several advantages when transporting large quantities of freight. The customs regulations are, however, the same – and in Russia they can often be quite bizarre,” says Sebastian Stahl, who himself is always on hand. “I’ve been travelling between Frankfurt, Sochi, Whistler and other competition venues for months,” he explains.

 

Storage facilities capable of storing the fragile equipment safely had to be found long before the first batches of freight could be transported. At the end of last year, trucks were used to transport items such as timekeeping devices and catering equipment for the teams. Transporting goods in this way is the most nerve-racking because the Russian roads can be unpredictable in winter. In addition to reliability, trust is a deciding factor for athletes when choosing a logistics company, as they often treat their sports equipment as they would children. The German company has been enjoying the confidence of a great many National Olympic Committees, sports associations and athletes for years.

Event Logistics Company Conceptum Sport Logistics Expands to Great Britain

 

A jump onto the island: Conceptum Sport Logistics opens office in London

 

Frankfurt/London, 19 September 2013 – German sport logistics connects the world: with a new office in the UK capital, London, Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com), the German event logistics company for sport and culture, is expanding its logistical network. The company specialises in transport for all major sports events around the world. The company will not only organise your sports equipment, but also handles all the accommodation and travel for participants. “All about sport and always on the spot” is the motto of the team led by Managing Director Sebastian Stahl. The new local office integrates yet another sporting nation into the CSL world, following Rio de Janeiro, Lausanne and Ottawa, and is led by Christina Zepper, an experienced sports industry specialist.

 

With extensive professional experience in the travel industry, Christina Zepper has already been part of the team responsible for organising a number of major events, such as the UEFA EURO 2008 European Football Championship in 2008. During the Olympic Games in London last year, Zepper was a member of the Organising Committee and was responsible as sales executive for several specific areas of the global structure of the games which Conceptum Sport Logistics is currently preparing for – the Sochi 2014 winter games are just around the corner and the logistics chain has already been working in the face of the political trials and tribulations around the Russian site for months. The Conceptum team is not only active when it comes to scouting out locations for storage, but is already preparing for full fixed-date delivery at the individual competition sites.

 

Presence on the spot is vital, as cultural events logistics require high levels of trust and reliability. “Sports equipment is sensitive, expensive and decisive for success. And that is why our customers are critical when choosing service providers”, says Sebastian Stahl. The team’s many years of experience and local presence in the most important sporting nations are a strong framework for the logistics network that CSL has spread around the globe. Worldwide, a large number of Olympic committees are already working with the logistics company from close to Frankfurt – Conceptum Sport Logistics is the only company also to have a place in the “Maison du Sport International” (the House of International Sport) in Lausanne. “Our service is just like a sport: passion, precision, training and a large number of competitions set the schedule for the season”, says Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of Conceptum Sport Logistics.

Student Universiade in Russia with German Timekeeping Logistics

Conceptum Sport Logistics taking care of the transports of all timekeeping equipment for the FISU Summer Universiade in Kazan, Russia  
 
Frankfurt/Kazan, 18 July 2013 – The Universiade of the FISU (International University Sports Federation, www.fisu.net) is taking place for the 27th time. The Russian city of Kazan was chosen as the venue – and German event logistics company Conceptum Sport Logistics is transporting the sensitive timekeeping equipment. In June, all the equipment was already transported to Kazan in a convoy of 8 trucks and distributed to the competition sites under the eagle eye of Conceptum Sport Logistics. The FISU Universiade in Kazan will end on 17 July – the host country, Russia, is currently also at the top of the medals table.
 
More than 13,500 athletes and delegation members from 170 countries and more than 1,000 media representatives have turned Kazan into the global centre of student sports over this period in a demonstration of unity among the world’s nations – it was ten years after the foundation of the FISU in 1948 before athletes from the Eastern bloc countries were able to participate. The logistics is very challenging. Custom duties, for example, have to be paid for transports from all corners of the globe – there is no exception for sports equipment when it comes to bureaucracy. For the cultural project logistics company based near to Frankfurt airport, the project is a small challenge and additional training for the Olympic games in 2014: “Preparations for Sochi 2014 have been underway since the beginning of last year – the Universiade, alongside the training events, gives us another opportunity to perfect our logistics processes”, says Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director at Conceptum Sport Logistics.
 
Besides transporting equipment to Kazan, distributing everything to the 30 different competition sites is also a question of preparation. The team from Frankfurt accompanies the transports in person and monitors delivery to the teams on site – the only way for athletes to start their competitions on time and safely. Trust in the logistics is also decisive for the student teams – and daily bread for Conceptum Sport Logistics: “Anyone preparing for a competition should not have to worry about transporting sports and team equipment”, says Sebastian Stahl of Conceptum Sport Logistics.

Conceptum Sport Logistics cooperates with New Zealand’s Olympic Committee

 

German sport logistics company supports New Zealand Olympic Committee

 

Frankfurt/Auckland, April 18, 2013 – The German cultural project logistics company Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) is catching international attention. In April the company headquartered near Frankfurt airport signed a contract with the New Zealand Olympic Committee (NZOC - www.olympic.org.nz), thus providing the complete logistical services for the Olympic teams. For the formal signing of the contract both parties have chosen the ONOC-meeting location on the Fiji Islands. All 17 national Olympic Committees of the Oceania region will attend the meeting. The complex task requires specific logistic solutions – a speciality of Conceptum CEO Sebastian Stahl and his team.

 

The company maintains an international network of offices, allowing them to provide transportation services all over the world..Numerous national Olympic Committees already rely on transport logistics by Conceptum. For New Zealand the company will also perform logistic services during the Commonwealth Games. Ever since 1911 the competition has been held among the member nations of the Commonwealth, with typical British sports such as hockey, cricket or lawn bowling. Sebastian Stahl, a logistician by vocation, is glad to put another pin on the globe: “Each of these solid partnerships is based on complete confidence in our services. Logistics for sports equipment is much more than simply sending some bulk freight around the globe. It is about trust!”

 

Kereyn Smith, Secretary General of the NZOC, confirms that: “We have chosen Conceptum Sport Logistics because of its high level of expertise in the area of sports and cultural event logistics.” For the Olympic Games logistics is a prerequisite for success – during the Summer Games 2012 the New Zealand team won six gold, two silver and five bronze medals. At Sochi 2014 New Zealand will be aiming for its second ever Olympic Winter medal.

The Olympic Committee of Latvia signs contract with Conceptum Sport Logistics

 

Cultural event logistics company to support the Latvian Olympic team

 

Frankfurt/Riga, 21st March 2013 – The Frankfurt-based specialist logistics company Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) is demonstrating its sport and cultural event logistics expertise in a further cooperation agreement. A multi-year contract between Latvia’s National Olympic Committee (www.olimpiade.lv) and the international company has sealed the relationship. The contract hands Conceptum Sport Logistics responsibility for all transport and logistics for the teams under the aegis of the Committee. The Committee has existed in Latvia since 1922 and was again officially recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1991 after the fall of the Soviet Union.

 

Beyond Igors Vihrovs who won the first Olympic gold for Latvia in the modern era in 2000 at the Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, the Latvians also hold the first, second and only BMX Olympic title - won by Maris Strombergs. The German logistics company will give the Olympic teams access to a global specialist logistics network for sports equipment and teams at one of the most important events in the coming year – the Olympic Games in Sochi 2014 where Conceptum Sport Logistics will be providing support for teams from around the world. Transport from training camp to any location in the world is daily routine for the specialist logistics company, and not just for sports equipment. Complete team facilities are also part of the job, as well as flights and hotels for athletes and their staff. Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of the cultural event logistics expert Conceptum Sport Logistics, is delighted to add a further milestone to the company’s history: “We provide athletes with exactly what they need – reliable logistics for the entire team. That means sport can be the focus, not the transport of your own sports gear,” says the head of logistics.

 

As a logistics partner, Conceptum Sport Logistics is already working for a number of teams in almost all disciplines across five continents – with packed sports equipment over 50 million kilometres were covered in 2012. Even more miles will be added within the next year – the Olympic Games are a challenge for the Conceptum team. As the official partner of a number of sports federations and teams, the company is prepared: its own office in Sochi and test transports for the pre-events have demonstrated the company’s ability to handle the volume.

FIS Travel AG cooperates with Conceptum Sport Logistics

 

International Ski Federation, special logistics company and leading Swiss travel agency, Globetrotter Travel Service, join forces for Sochi 2014

 

Frankfurt/Oberhofen, February 28th, 2013 – Thanks to its own travel agency, the International Ski Federation (FIS, Fédération Internationale de Ski – www.fis-ski.com) has strategic advantages in sports team transportation. From now on the International Ski Federation is cooperating with sports- and cultural project logistics company Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com). The company with offices around the globe is an acknowledged expert in worldwide transportations of sports equipment of the team, not only for winter sports but also for many other sports disciplines.

 

The cooperation of FIS Travel and Conceptum Sport Logistics is essential, especially regarding the upcoming remarkable event – the Olympic Games 2014 in Sochi. “When two companies combine their expertise and know-how, both sides gain advantages. Especially the athletes benefit from this“, says Heinz Gurtner, the CEO of FIS travel agencies. Globetrotter Travel Service, with 22 travel filials in Switzerland, complements the successful partnership. Since 2009, the company has provided all travel services for the Swiss Olympic team – and everyone willing to come to Sochi can book the tickets through Globetrotter. “Despite careful planning of the 2014 Winter Olympics, flight and accommodation booking as well as transportation arrangements might be a challenge. The cooperation of the three companies with the Olympic experience is a guarantee of an ideal solution!” assures Dany Gehrig, the CEO of the Globetrotter Travel Service.

 

The partnership has proven successful during the first test competitions: “Together we are stronger – in the light of the upcoming Olympic Games the cooperation with FIS Travel is an invaluable advantage”. As a logistics partner, Conceptum Sport Logistics already supports numerous national and international Olympic Committees – in 2012 a distance of more than 50 million kilometers was passed while transporting sports equipment. Even longer distances will be covered this and next year to transport the whole teams and to freight their equipment such as Olympic sleds and race cars including their service workshops. “Our logistics services are very similar to travel services, which also explains why FIS Travel and we fit together so well”, notes Sebastian Stahl from Conceptum Sport Logistics.

Logistical Tailwind for Skeleton Star Anja Huber

 

German skeleton athlete supported by Conceptum Sport Logistics

 

Frankfurt/Berchtesgaden, December 13, 2012  – "I'm not all about filling the bus," says skeleton athlete Anja Huber – "all or nothing" best describes the 29-year-old athlete's philosophy, one she shares with her new expert partners at Conceptum Sport Logistics, an extraordinary company specializing in cultural event logistics that will be serving the world-class athlete: "You can't see the logistics as I race down the frozen track, but we put a lot of importance into getting our equipment where it needs to be safe and sound," said Huber, who always puts on her left shoe first before an event.

 

You might find rituals like this in logistics, but ask Conceptum CEO Sebastian Stahl and he'd tell you that the challenge starts again once the skeleton has left the track. "Our logistical chain begins at the ice track or training camp – which is where it finishes up too. We ship the whole equipment, and we even take care of team logistics now," said Stahl. Athletes want to focus on the event, not on moving their equipment from one venue to the next – a fundamental principle that Conceptum, based near Frankfurt, Germany, lives and works by. Conceptum Sport Logistics is well-represented in the international arena with branch offices across the globe.

 

Anja Huber's success story dovetails with that of her new partners at Conceptum – she's already on her way to Sochi for a new medal after double gold for herself and her team at the 2008 World Championship as well as bronze at the 2010 Olympics and the 2010/2011 World Championship season. Conceptum Sport Logistics will be supporting Anja Huber all the way.

Rapid deployment for moving images

 

Conceptum Sport Logistics to transmit Tunisia-Switzerland match

 

Frankfurt/Sousse, November 29, 2012 – Conceptum Sport Logistics TV team (www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) agreed to transmit the game between Tunisia and Switzerland at just one day's notice. The two Swiss TV stations SF DRS and RTS opted to transmit the game live from Sousse, Tunisia, just two days ahead of the match, and the Conceptum Broadcasting team arrived in time for kick-off on November 14 in Tunisia with an OB van, nine cameras and a TV crew. There were all of around two thousand spectators at the Stade Olympique with many more following the match in front of their TV screens; Switzerland only clinched a 2:1 victory against the Tunisians in the last few minutes of the match.

 

The sports logistics experts' broadcasting team set a record of its own, however – "Flash deployments like this are no everyday event – not even in our field of activity," said Karin Borth, Captain of the cultural project logistics experts' TV crews at Conceptum Sport Logistics. The Conceptum Broadcasting Unit was happy to rise to the challenge, and everything was ready for kick-off at 6 PM. Located near Frankfurt Airport, Conceptum provides transport and logistics services for sports and culture as well as other services – such as the TV crew with its OB vans. Conceptum Sport Logistics transports not only sports equipment, but also provides entire teams with an all-round service that includes accommodation.

 

The live 16:9 format recording went to television stations in Switzerland for direct processing. Sebastian Stahl, CEO of Conceptum Sport Logistics, put it all in perspective – "Image reliability and quality take top priority at TV stations; we have standards that are just as high as in our conventional logistics projects – projects where we move complete motor racing and bobsleigh teams from A to B in the shortest possible time. Any challenge can be mastered with the right preparation, flexibility and diligence," said Stahl.

Luge logistics for the World Cup in Koenigssee 

 

Conceptum Sport Logistics manages transports for the Bobsleigh and Luge Federation of Germany (BSD)

 

Frankfurt / Koenigssee, November 21, 2012 – In a few weeks the Viessmann Luge World Cup will take place in Koenigssee – on the first and second of December women's and men's teams from around the world will be ready for the match with their one and two-man bobsleigh. The German project logistics experts of Conceptum Sport Logistics (www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) support the Bobsleigh and Luge Federation of Germany (BSD www.bsd-portal.de) with the logistics for the entire team and sports equipment. Since October 17, the team of the ice channel in Koenigssee is already icing up the track – just in time for the international training week in November and the upcoming tournaments. Originally, the competition was supposed to take place at the Olympic track in Cesana, Italy – a few months ago Koenigssee was awarded the contract by the International Luge Federation, FIL, which is cooperating with Conceptum Sport Logistics as well.

 

The Bobsleigh and Luge Federation is supported by comprehensive logistics from near Frankfurt – the headquarter of Conceptum Sport Logistics is located close to Frankfurt international airport. Manager Sebastian Stahl is well prepared for the World Cup in Koenigssee – his company is already busy with preparations for the upcoming Olympic Winter Games: "We are preparing for Sochi 2014. At the beginning of November, we already took care of the logistics during the local international training week on behalf of the national and international Olympic Committees", says Stahl. With this training for the athletes the logistics specialists are already practising for the use in 2014.

 

The good news are: The track of the "Sanki Sliding Center" in Sochi, Russia has been approved by the lugers of the Bobsleigh and Luge Federation of Germany (BSD) – logistics specialist Stahl is also looking forward to the Olympic challenge in just about 400 days. First, however, there will be the Luge World Cup in Koenigssee, and other events, as the winter sports season has just begun, according to Sebastian Stahl. For athletes and teams the logistic support by Conceptum Sport Logistics is crucial to focus on the training and the next competition. Therefore personal care is more than just logistics – it also includes organizing accommodations and flights for the teams by Conceptum.

Japan’s rugby team in good hands with logistics “made in Germany”

 

Conceptum Sport Logistics is the official partner of the Japan Rugby Football Union for the European tour

 

Frankfurt/Tokyo, xxNovember 2012 – A round leather ball is unknown in many parts of the world. In Japan, for example, the leather ball is egg-shaped and in rugby is carried across the field. Conceptum Sport Logistics (www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com), the German project logistics specialist, is the official partner of the Japan Rugby Football Union (JRFU) for logistics services during the 2012 tour. The contract between Conceptum (which is located near the Frankfurt airport) and JRFU (www.jrfu.org) constitutes the cornerstone of the new partnership.

 

Japan’s rugby team has a heavy schedule ahead of it: they will be squaring off against Romania in Bucharest on 10 November, Georgia in Tiflis on 17 November, and the Basque team on 21 November in San Sebastian. The final match will be against the French Barbarians in Le Havre. The German logistics provider Conceptum will be in charge of all team and equipment transport logistics for these matches. “We’re excited about this partnership, which nicely rounds out our portfolio of services for customers from the world of sports, as well as for numerous Olympics Committees. What’s more, the tight scheduling of the European tour is a logistical challenge,” said Conceptum Sport Logistics CEO Sebastian Stahl.

 

In rugby, two 15 member teams go head to head, and the winner is the squad that has scored the most points at the end of the 80-minute match. Unlike in soccer, rugby points can be earned by means of various maneuvers. And Sebastian Stahl’s team also earns points – but its playing field is the entire planet. “Our transport logistics mileage during the first six months of this year equated to 1,425 trips around the world. For us, transport means assuming responsibility from dispatch to destination, as athletes themselves would do,” Mr. Stahl adds. In this process the Conceptum team and its worldwide affiliates are always available to their customers, whether on the playing field, race course, or ice channel.

1,425 times around the world: logistics that are going great guns

 

Conceptum Sport Logistics has logged more than 50 million kilometers in the past six months alone

 

Frankfurt, October 31, 2012 – If you want to go around the world at the equator, you’ll need to count on covering a distance of 40,000 kilometers – which is the distance the Conceptum Sport Logistics team (www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) has covered 1,425 times.

Projects involving cultural project logistics accounted for 57 million kilometers – and within a space of six months, no less. In this process, the Conceptum team arranged for the transport of just about everything you can think of: racehorses; toboggans; auto race teams; teams of mechanics and their tools; symphony orchestras and their instruments, scores, and conductors. And in every single instance, the items reached their exact destination, whether it was Whistler, Canada, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, or Sotschi, Russia.

 

The company often receives logistics orders from high places such as national or international athletics organizations, or Olympic committees – all of which have availed themselves of Conceptum Sport Logistics’ services at one time or another.

Trust is key in such situations, for cultural project logistics often involve the transport of extremely fragile and/or sensitive items, many of them irreplaceable. “When sports or cultural events are held around the world, the spectators see only the facade, behind which are logistics processes involving transport, packing, and formalities,” says Sebastian Stahl, the CEO of Conceptum Sport Logistics, whose German head office is located near the Frankfurt airport.

 

Inasmuch as virtually all transport logistics require extensive preparation, Conceptum Sport Logistics has carried out test events at the various Olympics venues in preparation for the transport processes during the 2014 Olympics in Sotschi. For the athletes involved, such logistics services constitute more than just a helping hand, for they enable the athletes to fully focus on their sport, without getting distracted by the transport details of their equipment.

Conceptum CEO Sebastian Stahl sees these logistics as a task that requires his personal commitment and is at the same a lot of fun: “Our teams provide transport logistics from the pickup location to the destination, whether it’s an ice channel, a race track, or a concert hall. Because after all, 1,425 trips around the world make you happy.”

Golfing for a good cause – sport logistics at the tee

Conceptum Sport Logistics for Wings for Life with the German bob team coach Christoph Langen

 

Frankfurt/Ruhpolding, September 11, 2012 Golfing for Charity – with the event and sports logistics team from Conceptum Sport Logistics there for the tee-off (www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com). Together with other teams, Sebastian Stahl and his team of logistics experts have pledged their support for the fifth Wimmer Carbontechnik Open Wings for Life event (www.wingsforlife.com), a foundation committed to research in paraplegia. Every penny counts when it comes to researching spinal cord injury, a fate that has even afflicted athletes – another reason for Sebastian Stahl to support the foundation: "Our disabled athletes may have put in a great performance at the Paralympics, but research into the causes for prevention and cure is still important and needs funding. We want to do our bit," said the CEO of Conceptum Sports Logistics.

 

Four Wimmer Open events have shown that you can indeed combine a good cause with good fun. Wimmer Carbontechnik (www.carbontechnik.com) is a specialist in fibre-reinforced material processing, a manufacturing discipline with an obvious role in  sports with modern materials used in all kind of disciplines besides winter and racing sports; Sebastian Stahl's logistics experts often transport products from Wimmer Carbontechnik. Apart from racing, clients include the German skiing and bob teams, and German bob team coach and Conceptum Sport customer Christoph Langen will also be in Ruhpolding to support the event.

 

This time, the transport would not pose that much of a challenge according to Conceptum Sport Logistics boss Stahl: "A golf bag is no big deal for us at Conceptum – we're usually talking about complete team kits with all the bells and whistles," said the seasoned cultural event logistics expert. "Athletes need to be able to put a lot of confidence into the people handling their mostly costly and personal sports gear. We've put a lot into earning this confidence, and we're always there at the competitions to take care of the teams in person." Travelling around the world to the remotest of destinations using a network of offices across the globe is all part of the job.

From London to Sochi: Olympic logistics – a business that never sleeps

Frankfurt/Lausanne, August 30, 2012 – As this year's highly successful Olympics drew to a conclusion in London this summer, there was a very real race being fought completely below the radar of the world public – a race in sports logistics to ship sports equipment and team gear to wherever they're needed around the world on time. "The Olympics is more important than the games themselves for us at Conceptum," said Sebastian Stahl, CEO of Conceptum Sport Logistics (www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com). "We use the time between the games to prepare the shipments and plan out the logistics for the upcoming challenges at destination." The company with its German headquarters in Frankfurt provides logistical services on commission for a number of national and international Olympic Committees and their athletes.

 

Proximity to the athletes is crucial, as trust plays a major role in handling sports equipment. The strength of this trust was especially apparent at a partner event with Conceptum Sport Logistics as an international specialist inviting not only all the logistics experts in the team, but also a number of athletes served by the company. The athletes were only too happy to accept – Esme Kamphuis, Michi Halilovic, Erika Ridel and Carina Brechters were just some of the athletes to entrust the Conceptum team with their precious gear – high praise indeed for a company specialising in cultural project logistics: "There's one thing we give the athletes, and that's assurance – so they can concentrate on the great event without worrying about their sports equipment in transit," said Sebastian Stahl.

 

Conceptum Sport Logistics is already on site in Sochi with preparations for the upcoming Winter Olympics in full swing. Initial tests with trial competitions have already shown the infrastructure to be fully capable of allowing smooth equipment transports to reach the sports venues on time. Even so, preparing everything in advance with dummy runs is essential in preventing unpleasant surprises at crucial moments – including uncertainties such as bureaucracy. Apart from sports equipment and team gear handling, Conceptum also handles hotel and travel bookings in the holistic, integrated approach taken by CEO Sebastian Stahl and his team.

German sports logistics company takes victory in race for 2013 luge world championships in Whistler

 

Conceptum Sport Logistics transporting on behalf of the FIL International Luge Federation

 

Frankfurt/Whistler, July 31. 2012 – The luge world championships in Whistler, Canada, will be benefitting from valuable support from Germany. The world's top lugers will be meeting on January 28 to February 3, 2013, in Whistler for the luge world championships on the Olympic track. Conceptum Sport Logistics (www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) will be responsible for transporting the entire sports equipment.

The company from Frankfurt am Main will be acting as Presenting Sponsor, organising and managing the logistics to Whistler from everywhere else in the world on behalf of the FIL (www.fil-luge.org).

 

This has been a very sporting challenge for the Conceptum team – they did have to compete for the position, after all. Sebastian Stahl, managing director and coach to this successful transport team, takes a sportsmanlike view of it all: "The teams we are serving can only concentrate on winning if we've done our homework in preparing the transport, down to the tiniest detail, for delivery just in time at the venue." The logistics team's service extends right up to the track, as this all-round service is vital towards allowing athletes to focus fully on the competition. Trust is crucial as well – equipment is the most important asset for any athlete, second of course to health.

 

Perfect planning is key, along with knowing the local conditions and the international formalities that need to be dealt with such as customs and freight regulations, which can vary from one jurisdiction to the next in international transport. Conceptum Sport Logistics is already preparing for the Sochi Olympics; the specialists at Conceptum have already opened their own local office to carry responsibility up close to the track – an important factor according to Sebastian Stahl: "We need to keep close to ensure that our athletes always enjoy a complete logistical chain without gaps." This has come to include everything involved besides sports equipment, from team accommodation to flight and car rental reservations according to requirement from the Frankfurt-based experts at Conceptum.

A pentathlon in logistics

A forty-eight-hour time frame was all that the sports and culture logistics specialists at Conceptum Sport Logistics had to ship the main equipment components for the modern pentathlon world championship from Charlotte, USA, to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. An ordinary package is one thing, but shipping sports equipment up to complete team gear is a whole different story – leaving aside delays just from jumping the hurdles at customs.

 

The modern pentathlon in its contemporary form of the ancient Greek contest entails five separate disciplines – pistol shooting, epée fencing, swimming, show jumping, and a cross-country run. As varied as these disciplines are, they have one thing in common – the challenge of shipping both sports equipment and team gear to the competition venue on time, which is where Sebastian Stahl and his team at Conceptum Sport Logistics came into the picture. Based near Frankfurt Airport with offices around the world, the company has specialized in cultural project logistics that range from symphony orchestras to live cargo such as racehorses. A challenge requiring this know-how, a project such as this in joint agreement with the Union International de Pentathlon Moderne begins with effective planning.

 

Loading the goods is hardly an issue compared to the advanced planning effort – "Time is of the essence, keeping down to the minute with the right papers as well as exact preparation with everyone involved can make all the difference to the project outcome," said Conceptum CEO Sebastian Stahl. Activities such as dispatching equipment from Charlotte, USA, to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil presented the challenges that needed to be tackled; apart from anything else, the international pentathlon association demanded a guarantee from the service company.

 

It took the logistics company three months of preparation in planning and scheduling the shipments together with the association while taking every possible hitch into account in a period of preparation ending with a guarantee that Conceptum Sport Logistics could give without reservation. The modern pentathlon will be held in London in 2012 – the International Olympic Committee has granted the UIPM a guarantee of continuance up until the summer Olympics in 2016. Even so, the 2012 World Championship had to be dealt with before rising to the challenge of shipping all the most important equipment to London on time – another tight time window to keep with championship events in Budapest on April 12 – 16 and Rostov in Russia on April 19 – 22 following on from the first two in Charlotte and Rio. The World Championship Finals took place in Chengdu, China, at the end of May.

 

The greatest challenge was the completely new shooting equipment to be used for the first time this season. The French manufacturer had only just completed the new laser-based targeting devices before the competitions; Conceptum Sport Logistics had already developed a specialised shipping container and commissioned its manufacture to keep all of the shooting equipment safely embedded in preparation for the big day, and good advance planning meant that only a few fine-tuning alterations were needed under the leadership of Conceptum CEO Sebastian Stahl. The journey for this fragile freight began on the French Atlantic coast with an elaborate planning process to prepare each critical step in a logistical process chain that included drawing up a full set of customs documentation together with other official hurdles.

 

Working with local partners, and staff commitment in particular, played a crucial role in the outcome; the network of logistics specialists from Germany that had developed over years allowed for short, tried-and-trusted routes together with administrators at local level. Official documents such as import and export carnets were essential for unhindered customs clearance – once again, extensive preparation kept the actual process smooth and efficient. Assuring a smooth start to the competition served as important confirmation for the international association that they had indeed opted for the right partner in this logistical venture – keeping within the time frame available after the first event in Charlotte, USA, and smooth air shipment to Rio clinched it for the logistical plan; all of the equipment was ready and waiting at the event venue within hours of landing. The planned shooting equipment tests were completed in no time, giving everyone involved a well-earned day off as a reward for their efforts.

 

The local Conceptum Sport Logistics teams play an important role in turning a smooth plan into a smooth shipment; it takes more than just knowledge of the official channels and contacts in the customs and authorities, as speaking the same language as customers also plays an essential role. The company is less of a shipping specialist, and more of an expert partner to sport; the actual pentathlon association might be based in Monaco, but you will find the various world teams' members somewhere between the competition venues. This is also where project logistics in culture and sports plays a valuable role in addition to the industrial carriers – "In sports and culture, we operate in a very human environment with people who place immense value on their equipment.  That's a real motivator, as we know who we're doing it all for," said Sebastian Stahl from Conceptum Sport Logistics with a fleeting grin.

Conceptum Sport Logistics official Partner of the German National Ski Teams

 

Frankfurt, July 3rd , 2012 – An exclusive partnership agreement, set up by the German National Ski Association DSV www.deutscherskiverband.de, makes Conceptum Sport Logistics the official partner in logistics of the German national ski teams. All national teams benefit from Conceptum’s many years of experience in cultural project logistics.

 

“For our athletes, attendants and technicians, trust is the essential factor when it comes to matters of transport and organisation. For the athletes in particular, it is extremely difficult to leave their equipment in the hands of others. Thanks to the excellent professional competence with which Conceptum Sport Logistics handles this complex task, the athletes are able to fully concentrate on their competitions!” says Fritz Hollweck, Head of Skipool and Sponsoring at DSV Leistungssport GmbH.

 

As of now, Conceptum will be responsible for the transport of the equipment for alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, Nordic combined, ski jumping, ski cross and freestyle. With 15 worldwide offices and a perfect logistics network in all relevant places, Conceptum offers direct support to the teams – as for example in Sochi, Russia.

“We are committed to being a partner for the teams and athletes. And as their partner, we provide perfect logistics – anywhere, anytime, across borders and continents, right to the competition site.” says Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of Conceptum Sport Logistics.

 

The partnership has initially been fixed for two years, which makes the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia (www.sochi2014.com), part of the logistic package. For Sebastian Stahl, the games are a milestone he is really looking forward to: “We are already making preparations, exploring the competition sites, establishing timetables and discussing matters of customs clearance. We are prepared!“
