[ July 24, 2012   //   ]

Norbert Dentressangle at finishing line for the Tour De FranceThe French cycling team may be licking their wounds after the historic triumphy of Bradley Wiggins and the British team in this year’s Tour de France but Norbert Dentressangle at least has something to celebrate. The French-based logistics company has renewed its partnership with the Amaury Sport organisation to provide transport for the Tour for another five years, until 2018.

Norbert Dentressangle has been the official transport provider for the last 30 years. For this year’s 99th Tour de France, a dedicated fleet of 36 Norbert Dentressangle vehicles and 50 drivers accompanied the riders from the start in Liege in Belgium to to the finish line on the Champs Elysee in Paris, taking in 20 stages and covering 3,497 kilometres.
