FRANKFURT, Germany and LAUSANNE, Switzerland, August 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
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 were 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 (http://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 the destination." The company with its German competence center 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 working together with the logistics 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 specializing 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 (…).
