The Portuguese Olympic Committee (POC) is pleased to announce a long-term, strategic partnership between the Olympic Movement and Schenker Portugal, one of the world's leading providers of land transport and air and sea freight.
The agreement positions Schenker as Official Supplier to the POC for freight forwarding and customs clearance services for the Olympic Games 2008. Schenker will work with the POC and the Organising Committees for the Olympic Games in Beijing 2008 (BOCOG).
The signing of this long-term agreement is a significant step in the POC's drive to build relationships which ensure continuity in areas of critical importance. By ensuring that the Games in Beijing and beyond will benefit from the same expertise in these vital areas, the partnership with Schenker will play a key role in making the Games successful.
When it comes to major events such as the Olympic Games, only logistic and forwarding companies with a worldwide presence are in a position to provide all the global services required by the customer as a one-stop-shop.
