DB Schenker to move hundreds of yachts from all around the world into Perth for the ISAF 2011 event
(Sydney, 11 July 2011) For many years, sailing teams competing in international sports events have trusted DB SCHENKERsportsevents to deliver their racing boats and equipment to the event locations – safely and on time. As a result DB Schenker has been announced as Exclusive International Transport and Logistics Services Provider for Perth 2011. For the World Championships starting on December 3, 2011, the team will be importing equipment from all around the globe - including the nations coming directly from competing at European events prior.
Perth 2011 Chief Operating Officer Darren Beazley commented on the partnership between DB Schenker and Perth 2011 and is delighted to have such a strong team on board: “The movement of all the sailing equipment for the World Championships is such a huge undertaking so it was necessary for Perth 2011 to team up with the leaders in this industry, to ensure that everything is moved quickly and easily from overseas and arrives here intact.”
Schenker Australia Pty Ltd in particular has a long-standing history in the transportation of sailing boats and other sports equipment. Already last yearDB Schenker handled the Perth Regatta with great professionalism and dedication.
Mr Beazley said: “Whether it’s by ocean, air, road or rail, the DB SCHENKERsportsevents team will get it there on time and without any issues. They have a proven track record in offering these vital services, already providing the logistics for similar sailing events, including previous Volvo Ocean Races and Sail Melbourne events.”
Perth 2011 is the main qualifier for the sailing events at the London 2012 Olympic Games – something DB Schenker knows about - as they provided the freight forwarding and customs clearance for several Olympic and Paralympic Games. The depth of expertise and specialisation is evident in the fact that DB Schenker has a dedicated and highly specialised team to manage logistics for major sporting events, such as the Olympics, World Cups, Commonwealth Games, Asian Games and more.
Ron Koehler, CEO of Schenker Australia Pty Ltd is proud to be associated with such high-class events and the trust Perth 2011 and its participants have in DB Schenker’s services to deliver their equipment safely and on time.
