For many of us, athletic or not, the Olympic Games are an international event not to be missed. The competition is a fascinating and historic event. Every four years, thousands of athletics meet to go beyond their limits and pursue their dreams of victory in every sport.
The 2016 event will take place in August in Rio, Brazil. CMA CGM participated in the project, offering its logistic expertise.
An expert at transporting a wide variety of cargo, such as perishable goods like fruits and vegetables to luxury yachts, pharmaceutical products and industrial equipment, the Group contributed to this historic event by transporting equipment and installations from across the world to Rio in the best possible conditions.
In total 1,370 TEUs were transported to the “wonderful port” of the Brazilian capital, of which 1,270 TEUs were destined for the Olympic village in addition to 100 TEUs of safety barriers for the track cycling event. CMA CGM also transported some Irish team’s racing boats.
