In addition, Sailing Århus will have a global logistics partner, ready and able to provide all the necessary support and assistance in questions regarding shipping and logistics.
"We are very happy with the agreement",
said Event Director Thomas Capitani NIELSEN. "Schenker is a professional, experienced and not least global collaborator, able to ensure what is most essential for us, namely that the dinghies are delivered at the right place, at the right time, and not least in perfect condition, here in Århus. We confidently leave this job to Schenker and are therefore able to focus on what we do best, which is to organize the event itself."
Bent FRIIS, marketing manager with Schenker A/S, said, "Schenker is proud to have been chosen as a partner for these World Championships. It underlines our leading global position within transportation and logistics, as well as our expertise in handling event logistics, an expertise which has also made us exclusive supplier for the Olympics in Beijing."
