BIFA ready for the Olympics

[ January 17, 2012   //   ]

The British International Freight Association (BIFA) has added a dedicated area on its website offering logistics advice in connection with the Olympic and Paralympic games. It gives those involved in supply chain activities information to help mitigate disruption to cargo collection and delivery activities.

BIFA director general Peter Quantrill said: “We are on the starting line with our members and the wider freight community in planning ahead to reduce the disruption and problems these events will create with a special area of our website – http://www.bifa.org/content/olympics.aspx.  As well as a full list of relevant Olympic links, news and downloads, transport planners can see items which explain such things as: Out-of-hours deliveries during London 2012 Games; online resources to help the freight industry plan for London 2012 Games, as well as other relevant and useful content.”

He added: “Athletes from around the world tirelessly plan and practice for months and years to take part in the Olympics. Our members must also plan to mitigate disruptions to their clients’ supply chains during the Olympic and Paralympic events. The new area of our website will help them to achieve that and make sure that they will all bring home gold for their clients.”
