Global logistics and supply chain operator Geodis kicked off Euro 2016 early with the delivery of 13,000 individual bags, 450 part numbers and 120 tonnes of goods to ten stadiums.
 

Geodis staff rose to the challenge by preparing and delivering the equipment kits for the referees and volunteers taking part in Euro 2016, which starts today (June 10)

To complete the task Geodis deployed a team of ten dedicated drivers, approved by UEFA, who will travel up and down France throughout Euro 2016.

Geodis was also responsible for shipping Super Victor, the competition mascot standing 1.90m tall and weighing 70 kilograms, which has been installed 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.  At the same time the team responsible for the preparation of the bags was also set up.
 

To commemorate 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.
