LONDON – December 1, 2016 – Agility, a leading global logistics provider, has extended its partnership with international events venue ExCeL London through 2019, continuing its role as ExCeL’s official logistics partner.
 
Agility Fairs & Events will continue managing freight transportation to and from the venue. Agility is the only logistics company with staff offices and warehouse facilities on-site at ExCeL giving it the ability to service all event logistics requirements.
 
The Agility suite of services for event organizers and exhibitors includes on-site event materials storage, offloading and reloading of vehicles, domestic and overseas collection with customs clearance assistance, direct-to-stand venue deliveries, courier service management, and licensed equipment hire with a qualified operator.
 
David Richards, European Regional Director for Agility Fairs & Events, said, “We have been working with ExCeL since 2012, and our on-site presence gives us an unrivalled knowledge of the facility. This win demonstrates our successful track record of delivering world-class logistics services at ExCeL. We look forward to continuing to work in partnership for the benefit of the venue’s event organizers and exhibitors.”
 
ExCeL London is the UK’s international center for conferences, congresses, exhibitions and conventions, hosting hundreds of events yearly and attracting over 3.5 million visitors. The ExCeL Venue Services division provides customers with all services needed to create and participate in events hosted by the venue. Agility is an integral element of ExCeL’s offering.
 
Paul Brindley, Executive Director of ExCeL Venue Services, said, “Agility’s global experience and expert local knowledge are the best in the business. I am delighted that we are continuing to work in close partnership. Our shared passion for exceptional events will help to create great outcomes for event organizers, exhibitors, contractors and visitors in 2017 and beyond.”
 
The win follows Agility’s recent ISO 14001 and ISO 20121 certifications for environmental management and event sustainability. Agility is one of the first exhibition logistics companies to achieve these standards, which minimize risk and develop opportunities for real change within the exhibition logistics industry.
 
“Winning these accreditations clearly demonstrates that we can provide sustainable logistics solutions to all of our clients. The in-house systems we use to manage our environmental practices and processes have attained the highest international standard for environmental stewardship,” Richards said.
