The International Triathlon Union (ITU) has extended its partnership with SEL Sport & Events Logistics (SEL) to serve not only as the global logistics partner for ITU but also the travel solutions partner.
“We are delighted to further develop our relationship with SEL, which has proven itself to be delivering and adding value to ITU to the highest standards,” said Marisol Casado, ITU President and IOC Member. “We are thrilled that a company such as SEL Logistics, which has more than 25 years of experience in major events, will be delivering not only the logistic services they’ve been providing for more than a year, but will also take care of all ITU travel solutions as an international sporting federation with multiple events across the world.
“The delivery of our branding elements from race to race all over the world, and the travels of all ITU staff, Technical Officials, and Executive Board are now centralised and organised to the best quality standards.”
As a part of the agreement, SEL Sport & Events Logistics will provide logistics and freight forwarding for ITU to all WTS events in 2017, and extend this service to all 16 World Cups, Paratriathlon World Series and Paratriathlon World Cups.
As part of SEL’s services, the company will be implementing its Travel Solutions offering, allowing ITU to centralise workloads and increase productivity around its available resources.
“Triathlon is a sport for all – for all ages, for all levels of competition – truly global,” said Pier Bottero, Chief Executive at SEL. “So, for us to have the opportunity to support ITU in its quest to broaden its reach, we are excited. We shall always endeavour to optimise solutions and services for ITU , and all stakeholders.”
ITU and SEL will continue to develop their partnership and build towards Tokyo 2020 and beyond in an effort to improve efficiency for LOCs, athletes and fan experiences at ITU events worldwide.
