Opening ceremony of the Olympic Winter Games in South Korea is right around the corner
Pyeongchang/Frankfurt, February 02, 2018 – While all winter sports fans as well as athletes and officials are excitedly awaiting the opening ceremony of the Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, the first box in terms of the Olympic Games has already been checked for the globally active logistical company Conceptum Logistics (CSL - www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com). Almost 3 weeks ago, the cultural project logistician already delivered broadcasting equipment to South Korea.
"Experience shows that broadcasting technology is always moved to the site a few weeks before the major event begins. It is more critical to transport the sports equipment, which is still needed all over the world until shortly before the Games,” says Stahl, Managing Director of the cultural project logistician.
Inside the warehouse of Conceptum Logistics in Pyeongchang, large boxes containing the bobsleds have meanwhile been piling up. More than 80 of them alone were air-shipped and will be delivered to the clients next weekend. In addition, there are 100 luges as well as numerous material crates for the technicians. All in all, we handled approx. 250 tons of material.
"We are proud of the fact that we have been allowed to work for national Olympic Committees as well as various sports federations for years. This year, more than 30 nations rely on our services in various disciplines,” says Stahl. “It was important for us as a company here as well to have a competent team on site. The know-how on site helps prevent difficulties,” continues Stahl.
The boss of the logistics team is always personally in the field – “Now, Step 1 has been completed, and the return of the sports gear as well as the entire equipment has already been planned, of course,” continues Stahl “for the next orchestra tour is already waiting in the wings,” adds Stahl with a wink.

Pyeongchang / Frankfurt / Helsinki, March 8, 2017 – After the Conceptum Sport Logistics team in Pyeongchang packed all materials for the biathlon world cup event and loaded them onto trucks to be transported to the airport in Seoul last Sunday night at 11:00 pm, the Conceptum Sport Logistics team in Frankfurt feverishly awaits its planned arrival on Tuesday morning at 5:30 am so that everything can be prepared on this end for customs and further transport of all sports equipment as well as the marketing and anti-doping material to the Hahn Airport.
The ATR 72, which is exclusively available for this transport, is scheduled to arrive in Frankfurt-Hahn at 2:20 pm on Tuesday afternoon to take off in the direction of Joensuu, Finland, from there at 3:50 pm after being loaded with the cargo. In the meantime, the Conceptum Logistics team in Finland is already preparing for its arrival, organizing everything to ensure that all materials can be transported to the venue in Kontiolahti as fast as possible.
After the aircraft lands in Joensuu at 9:40 pm on Tuesday night and the loading and documentation process has been efficiently organized, all materials can be delivered to the venue of the next biathlon world cup race in Kontiolahti the next morning at 07:30 am.
“Whenever such a time-critical transport also involves a great sleep deficit for all parties involved, the sense of achievement at the end of the day is worth all of our efforts!” says Sebastian Stahl, Managing Director of Conceptum Sport Logistics in Frankfurt. “Our team in Pyeongchang as well as our coworkers here in Frankfurt and of course our colleagues in Finland all did an excellent job; otherwise, such a fast transportation process from one end of the world to the other would not be feasible”, continues Stahl.
