DB Schenker to act as volleyball partner for another four years

Contract signed with International Volleyball Federation FIVB in Lausanne

(Frankfurt, March 27, 2017) DB Schenker has agreed to act as sponsorship partner of the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) for another four years. The logistics services provider already supports the sports organisation with worldwide logistics and ancillary services, inclusive of customs clearance for all kinds of events staged by the 222 national volleyball federations. The contract has now been signed in Lausanne, where the FIVB is based. The first partnership agreement was concluded back in 2014.

As official logistics partner of the FIVB, the experts from DB SCHENKERsportsevents are responsible for the planning, organization, coordination and execution of all transports for volleyball and beach volleyball events the world over. These include FIVB top events such as the Volleyball and Beach Volleyball World Championships, as well as World League, World Grand Prix and World Tour Final matches.

​​​​​​​

The DB Schenker sponsorship was renewed by the FIVB because of the company’s comprehensive experience as service provider for major international sports events, such as the Olympics and Paralympics, as well as numerous world championships. Moreover, the company’s sporting pedigree, its experience with marketing sports properties and potential for generating new business opportunities fits well with the FIVB’s future direction and goals.

FIVB President Dr. Ary S. Graça F° commented: “I am glad that we have agreed to continue this strong partnership, as we are preparing for several mega-events such as the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships in 2017 and 2019, the FIVB Men’s and Women’s Volleyball World Championships in 2018 and, of course, the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Thanks to the well-organized logistics delivered by DB Schenker, the FIVB has optimized its service, saved time and reduced the costs for everyone involved.” 

Christian Schultze, Head of DB SCHENKERsportsevents said: “As official partner of the FIVB, we look forward to the challenges that await us when providing the logistics for the countless national and international events. Volleyball and beach volleyball are sports for which our enormous experience will allow us to present global solutions for all logistics requirements.”
