Kuehne+Nagel is proud to be appointed as the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Official Event Logistics Provider by Birmingham 2022, supporting an organisation that shares our sustainability goals and celebrates diversity and inclusion.
As a logistics partner to premier international sporting events, as well as numerous world-wide trade fairs and exhibitions, we know what it takes to deliver on the big stage!
Logistics for a major event of this kind, requires a broad skill-set; from planning, co-ordinating, project managing and workforce management, to expertise in health and safety, customs, air and road transportation and often, working to tight schedules.
Working closely with the organisers’ logistics team, Kuehne+Nagel will use its customised, sustainable logistics solutions and its extensive technology systems, to ensure that everything required for the event – from all four corners of the globe – is delivered in place, on time. This includes safe transit through customs, storage and forwarding.
Our know-how and experience will see us utilise our warehousing capabilities and ensure that additional crews brought in for the events, work efficiently to provide logistics at every venue, ensuring the assembly and disassembly of kit and its onward transportation.
Timeliness is crucial too and for this, the right type of transportation makes all the difference. Using integrated logistics for Birmingham 2022 will ensure that the most effective and, where feasible, the most sustainable methods are used.
