Safely transporting rowing boats and team equipment around the world, between international rowing regattas, team training camps, World Championships and Olympic and Paralympic Games is no simple logistical task, but it is an area in which EFM has years of experience and demonstrates a solid understanding of the challenges involved.
In 2019 we have been busy working on the World Junior Rowing Championships in Tokyo, in preparation for the 2020 Olympics, and the World Rowing U23 Championships in Sarasota, USA.
EFM has worked with international rowing across all corners of the globe
The services provided by EFM to international rowing teams including the GB Rowing Team, and event organisers, sponsors, media and event suppliers, have included providing vans and experienced drivers to transport excess baggage and equipment around, hiring / purchasing, racking out and loading / unloading shipping containers, building custom made shipping crates, door to door sea freight and airfreight services worldwide, arranging cranes and lifting equipment, warehousing, raising ATA carnets, preparing customs documentation and attending on-site to ensure that all goes smoothly.
Rowing teams travel not only with their rowing boats and oars but also with a plethora of supplies necessary for successful performance – such as gym and fitness equipment, competition clothing, medical and physiotherapy equipment, bicycles, office supplies, energy drinks and nutritional products. Each country carries its own challenges which EFM has successfully navigated around, including arranging quarantine inspections, import permits, steam cleaning, ferry bookings, security screening procedures, and liaising with the competition organising committees and making MDS bookings, to comply with the various regulations for each shipment and event, making sure that everything is delivered safely and on-time to venues worldwide.
