GEODIS is the official freight carrier of rugby world cup France 2023

The France 2023 Organising Committee has announced that GEODIS has been appointed as the official freight carrier of the rugby world cup France 2023.

With this action, GEODIS is committed to provide personalised logistics services with the aim of minimising the impact on the environment.

Claude Atcher, France 2023 CEO, said that “from the start of the France 2023 project, we made our responsibility clear: to organise an event capable of minimising its impact on the environment, notably through the help of its partners.”

GEODIS will use its know-how, global capabilities, and infrastructure to be responsible for ensuring the efficient management of approximately 80 tonnes of equipment for the 20 participating countries.

In addition, the company will meet the logistical needs of the thousands of volunteers participating in the entire tournament.

Acting in accordance with the Group's ambition for continuous reduction of CO2 emissions by 2030, GEODIS will use low carbon vehicles to achieve its mission.

In fact, the company has already committed to developing such fleets in about 40 French cities from now until 2024.

Marie-Christine Lombard, GEODIS CEO, said “I am proud that GEODIS has been entrusted with the critical mission of being the Official Freight Carrier of Rugby World Cup France 2023. Team spirit, integrity, passion, discipline, and respect are all values that characterise this sport and that we share at GEODIS.”
