GEODIS As the Official Freight Carrier of Rugby World Cup 2023 in France
GEODIS was chosen as the tournament’s official freight company by the France 2023 Organizing Committee. GEODIS has made providing environmentally friendly logistics services a priority.
GEODIS has declared that it will be the official freight carrier for France 2023. The fundamental goal of GEODIS is to provide eco-friendly logistics services.
Due to its global reach and established infrastructure, GEODIS will be in charge of 80 tons of equipment from 20 different countries. It is available to anyone who chooses to assist. This big international athletic event will be aired in nine locations across ten French towns and villages by GEODIS.
GEODIS plans to use low-carbon cars to cut CO2 emissions by 2030. By 2024, GEODIS plans to use these vehicles in 40 French communities.
“From the outset, we made it clear that our responsibility was to plan an event that would have a lesser environmental effect, especially with the collaboration of its partners,” the CEO stated the opinion. “GEODIS, a company that organizes international athletic events and is environmentally conscious, shares our mission. If we can overcome the existing and future challenges, the Rugby World Cup 2023 will be a success.”
“We are delighted to be the Official Freight Carrier of the Rugby World Cup France 2023,” CEO Marie-Christine Lombard declared. All of these traits may be found in both GEODIS and the sport of archery. As the CEO of a global French company, I’m ecstatic that our employees will be able to take part in an event that will bring so many people together and allow France to shine beyond its boundaries.
From September 8 to October 28, 2023, the Rugby World Cup will be held in nine stadiums in ten French cities. France will host the men’s Rugby World Cup for the second year in a row.
William Webb Ellis, a pupil at Rugby School, is said to have invented rugby football in 1823 when he caught the ball and raced with it.
This year’s Rugby World Cup will focus on four pillars of social responsibility and sustainability: sustainability and circular economy, education, training, employment, and environmental preservation. It will also help to bring people together by campaigning for men and women to have equal rights.
Twenty teams will compete in the Rugby World Cup in 2023. By finishing in the top three in their group, twelve players qualified for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan. The remaining eight earned their spots by participating in 48 matches throughout the globe in 51 days.
