UPS delivers 400 tons of broadcasting equipment to Olympics media centre

The Olympics official logistics partner, UPS, has made its final delivery of media equipment to the International Broadcast Centre (IBC). The venue near the Olympic Park is going to be a 24-hour home to 21,000 accredited journalists, photographers and camera crews from all over the world.

UPS courier services delivered a total of 400 tons of television broadcasting equipment to the IBC. That includes 60,000 pieces of equipment and cables with a joined length of 560,000 metres. Thanks to the carrier, television, radio and internet broadcasters stationed at the IBC will be now able to communicate with an audience of over 4.8 billion people over the entire duration of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

UPS also reported that a high street with merchandise shops, caf├ęs and dry cleaning services was built only for the media but will be converted for future retail purposes after end of the Games.
