Of the many sporting events in recent years that Spacewise has been proud to support, the 2012 London Olympics holds a special place in the organizations history, being a part of a tradition of their role in the world of sport, and representing unique examples of their technical skills as they strive for perfection. Upon receiving news that they would be supporting the Olympic organizers by providing the shipping containers that would be need in both the Olympic village and the Stadium area, the people at Spacewise were determined to deliver the highest quality of service, and of course the chiller and reefer models of refrigerated shipping containers to facilitate the dissemination of beverages and other goods to the crowds.
The size of the crowds at an event of this magnitude meant that Spacewise would be going well beyond the usual demands of say a beer festival where only a hand of containers were needed, in order to accommodate. Spacewise would have to step up the amount of containers, with addition of their typical containers, while placing them strategically. This meant using more of the 40ft refer shipping containers especially during the deliveries process, as the patrons at the games quickly depleted the supply of cola and larger, as well as bringing in the chillers to keep all of the beverages cool and not frozen for the duration of the event.. This meant that diversification became key to the project’s success.
The level of experience that helped Spacewise to meet the challenge of stocking the proper provisions for such an event a s the Olympic, was grounded in years of using shipping containers to supply all sorts of event in the past. From large catered formal events, such as open air weddings, to outdoor wine and cheese events, and even far flung music festivals and concerts. Still, it has to be noted that in the world of shipping container supply the Olympics are the biggest show on earth. The prestige of such an accomplishment was not lost on the knowledgeable Spacewise team.
In order to accomplish this massive effort, Spacewise partnered with the good people at Coca-Cola Enterprises, to bring their product to all those in attendance at the 2012 Olympics. This meant supplying them with the shipping containers they needed to keep dozens of brands, and thousands of bottles on ice and other containers converted into portable WCs, to keep those in attendance content during the games. By working with the people at Coca- cola Enterprises during the games Spacewise developed some valuable professional relationships, and this spirit of cooperation is exemplified in what they were able to achieve at the Olympic park during the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympics Games.
