ExCeL London, the home of world-leading events, has signed an exclusive three year partnership with Agility- a leading global logistics provider - to be the venue's official logistics partner. This unique partnership establishes a holistic approach to logistics. The new contract is being activated during the first quarter of 2015.
Drawing on a common vision of customer satisfaction and international experience, services include global freight forwarding, courier receiving, pre and post show storage, provision and operation of lifting equipment, collection, storage and re-delivery of packages and direct delivery to stands.
As the sole logistics provider for ExCeL London, Agility will offer bespoke logistics solutions. Being the official logistics partner on site enables Agility to respond quickly and efficiently to changing customer requirements such as storage, packing, collecting, receiving and dispatching event and exhibit materials.
This is part of a wider programme of strategic partnerships as ExCeL London continues to enhance its service offering, creating great event outcomes for organisers and exhibitors.
David Pegler, CEO of ExCeL London said: "Over the next three years, ExCeL will benefit from Agility's network of over 500 locations across the world, helping to boost the experience for organisers and exhibitors. This innovative and unique collaboration is part of our drive for service excellence. Our partnership with Agility is another example of how we continue to invest, putting the needs of our customers at the heart of everything we do."
The attraction of London and our track record of success mean we host more world-leading events than ever before, increasing the number of international organisers, exhibitors and visitors. Our partnership with Agility allows our customers and exhibitors access to cross border logistics resulting in time and cost savings, offering more sustainable logistics solutions."
David Richards, Managing Director for Agility Fairs & Events UK said: "Agility has been working with ExCeL London since 2012 as its non-exclusive preferred freight operator. The new 'Official Logistics Partner' status given to Agility is a testament to our successful track record of delivering world-class logistics and shipping services that meet the demanding needs of the event industry."
