UPS Sets Its Sights on London 2012Preparing for an Olympic Games doesn’t happen overnight. Since 2009 UPS has been working around the clock to help ensure that everything is in place before the start of the 2012 Olympic Games. By the end of 2011, UPS will deliver over 180 full truckloads to Olympic venues and manage warehousing of more than 250,000 items well before even the first event has taken place.
As the Official Logistics and Express Delivery Supporter of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, UPS will be responsible for warehousing, distribution, venues and village logistics, customs and freight forwarding, small package and special projects before, during and after the Olympic Games. Even now, UPS has more than 90 team members on the ground working to guarantee a flawless start. Our plan is to have over 1,100 people by June 2012 to provide logistics support for what is shaping up to be one of the greatest Olympic Games ever.
