DHL supports European athletics championships in Berlin
The DHL entity DHL Trade Fairs & Events, which specialises in fair and event logistics and is a part of DHL Freight, is coordinating the transport and storage of sports equipment, venue logistics, and on-site support for the 2018 European athletics championships currently being held in Berlin. DHL Trade Fairs & Events is the sole logistics partner for the championship.
In addition to door-to-door logistics services, with flexible on-demand delivery for athletes and VIPs, DHL also prepared 8,500 welcome bags, with items from sponsors. The firm also transported the shot-put ring, with a diameter of circa 2.4 m and weighing 970 kg, from the Olympic stadium to two different venues in Berlin. Furthermore, two of the company's semi-trailers serve as mobile storage space for vaulting poles, with DHL also providing additional equipment. (mw)
