‘Perry the Bull’ visits the Kuehne+Nagel warehouse

Kuehne+Nagel, as an official provider to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, had a special visitor today as ’Perry the Bull’ – the official mascot for Birmingham 2022 – visited the newly opened Central Logistics Warehouse, set to be a central storage hub for the Games.

It was two thumbs up from Perry, as he inspected the crucial operation and saw that the plans to manage hundreds of thousands of items, including sports apparatus, baggage and equipment, were all ready and in position for the start of the Games this July.

Tamara Sutherland, Head of Logistics at Birmingham 2022 said, “It’s great to see the warehouse is now up and running and ready to start receiving, storing and re-distributing items that are essential to the success of the Games. It’s tangible proof that the Games are getting closer and it’s great to see plans on paper come to life.”

It’s a great opportunity for them to meet some of our colleagues who will be at the heart of the operations, from now until the event finishes in August. We’re truly proud to be part of these exciting Games.”
