Winter Olympics without a lift?

The short-notice import of goods to Russia is a job for a logistics and shipping provider specializing in Eastern Europe.

Shipping entire ski lifts is a mammoth task, especially when Russia is the final destination. Under contract to Doppelmayr, the world leader in aerial lift and funicular transit systems, Condor developed a multi-phase logistical project to ship ski lift components to Sochi for the Olympic Winter Games 2014. Our expertise was required when Doppelmayr wanted to send urgently needed spare parts to Russia just one week before the Games began. Such an undertaking would normally have been impossible due to the notoriously strict customs in Russia. Thanks to our Russian-based Condor subsidiaries, we were able to provide an elegant solution and deliver the replacement parts to their destination on time. Instead of being imported through regular channels, the parts were only temporarily imported by our subsidiaries, thereby bypassing the far more complex procedure.

  1. The Mission
    Delivery of Doppelmayr ski lifts and urgently needed replacement parts to Russia for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
  2. The Challenge
    Just a week before the Games began, critical replacement parts were needed in Sochi – on such short notice that it was actually not feasible in Russia.
  3. Our Solution
    Instead of importing the replacement parts via regular channels, we reached out to our regional subsidiaries to temporarily import the parts and thus accelerate the delivery.
