FRANKFURT, Germany and WHISTLER, British Columbia, July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The world's top lugers will be meeting on January 28 to February 3, 2013, in Whistler for the luge world championships on the Olympic track. Conceptum Sport Logistics (http://www.conceptum-sport-logistics.com) will be responsible for transporting the entire sports equipment.
The company from Frankfurt am Main will be acting as Presenting Sponsor, organising and managing the logistics to Whistler from everywhere else in the world on behalf of the FIL (http://www.fil-luge.org).
This has been a very sporting challenge for the Conceptum team. Sebastian Stahl, managing director and coach to this successful transport team, takes a sportsmanlike view of it all: "The teams we are serving can only concentrate on winning if we've done our homework in preparing the transport for delivery just in time at the venue." The logistics team's service extends right up to the track, as this all-round service is vital towards allowing athletes to focus fully on the competition. Trust is crucial as well - equipment is the most important asset for any athlete, second of course to health.
Perfect planning is key, along with knowing the local conditions and the international formalities that need to be dealt with such as customs and freight regulations. Conceptum Sport Logistics is already preparing for the Sochi Olympics; the specialists at Conceptum have already opened their own local office to carry responsibility up close to the track - an important factor according to Sebastian Stahl: "We need to keep close to ensure that our athletes always enjoy a complete logistical chain without gaps."
