DB Schenker new partner of the IBU World Championships Biathlon in Östersund 2019

The agreement makes DB Schenker the logistic partner of the Swedish Biathlon Union during the WCH in Östersund 7-17 of March 2019.

The Swedish Biathlon Union and Östersund host the IBU World Championships Biathlon 2019. It is the fifth time that Sweden arrange the world championships and for the third time in Östersund.

DB Schenker is for the first time a Selected Partner and the logistic partner for the Swedish Biathlon Union.

– We are very happy to be a partner and contributor to create a great event in Östersund in March, says Hanna Svebring, Marketing manager at DB Schenker.

– An event as big as the World Championships is a big logistic project. We only have one chance to make everything right compared to everyday-work. This is why it is crucial for us to ally with partners that are pros in all that they do. DB Schenker is a world leading actor of these services and will help us to exceed all expectations and make the WCH worth its weight in gold for everyone, says Patrik Jemteborn, President OC.

According to Hanna Svebring, the strong position that biathlon have in Sweden together with the national team’s successes is a contributing factor to the collaboration.

– After the team’s successes during the Olympics I believe that more people got interested in the sport in general and the national team in particular.

A collaboration right on target

As the logistic partner, DB Schenker will provide logistic services for the Swedish Biathlon Union during the championships. A mission similar to the one for the biathletes.

– Logistics is about precision and timing, similar to hitting the shots right on target. We look forward to contribute with our great competence and experience from earlier international sport events and give our best service, says Hanna Svebring.
