GEODIS Delivers Equipment Kits for Euro 2016

GEODIS Delivers Equipment Kits for Euro 2016
Danny Gill

GEODIS is in the midst of delivering 13,000 individual bags, 450 part numbers, and 120 tonnes of goods to 10 stadiums by the end of May. These equipment kits are being delivered for the referees and volunteers taking part in Euro 2016, which starts on June 10.

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.
