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.
Cultural event logistician has been servicing the International Luge Federation for years
Frankfurt/Berchtesgaden/Sochi, February 01, 2016 – The long-standing cooperation proves the skills in sports and cultural event logistics of the Frankfurt specialist logistics company Conceptum Sport Logistics (CSL – www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com).
While the athletes and coaches are still celebrating their victories after the FIL World Luge Championships at Königssee, Conceptum Sport Logistics is busy preparing the further transport of the entire equipment. 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. This allows them to focus on their sport - and not on the frantic transport of their own sports equipment”, says the head logistician.
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. More kilometers are to be added in this year and the next - the Olympic Games in the summer of this year will be a challenge for the Conceptum team. As an official partner of numerous sport federations and teams, the company is prepared: Their own office in Rio de Janeiro is working on the preparations at high pressure.
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.
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.
