13 000 sacs individuels, 450 références, 120 tonnes de marchandises, et 10 stades à livrer : c’est le challenge que relèvent en ce moment les équipes de GEODIS Distribution & Express afin d’assurer avant la fin du mois de mai la préparation et la livraison des kits d’équipements destinés aux arbitres et aux volontaires de l’Euro 2016 qui débutera le 10 juin.
GEODIS has already shipped Super Victor, the competition mascot standing 1.90m tall and weighing 70 kg, and installed it at the head office of the French Football Federation. It also transported the machine used for the official draw.
Since March 29, GEODIS staff has taken delivery of 750 pallets of equipment from the official competition sponsor at a dedicated warehouse in the Paris region. On this same date, a team set up for this purpose began preparing the bags. As part of their participation in Euro 2016, all the referees and the 6,500 volunteers will receive a sports bag with a complete outfit corresponding to their size, gender and shoe size.
After preparation, the bags will be shipped to the ten stadiums involved in the competition before May 31. For this purpose, GEODIS has put in place a team of ten dedicated drivers, approved by the UEFA, who will travel up and down France throughout Euro 2016.
