An ICAT Logistics Case Study Delivery to a Special Event

The Olympic Games are underway is Russia. The ICAT team receives an urgent phone call regarding hockey sticks that need to be delivered in Sochi, Russia to one of the players immediately.

The Problem

One Call

With the Olympic Games underway, ICAT received a call advising that Pavel Datsyuk needed six more hockey sticks in Sochi, Russia. Pavel played for the Detroit Red Wings and was the Team Captain for Russia during the 2014 Winter Olympics. Due to the heightened security during these type of events, it was imperative for ICAT to find a quick and effective solution for this particular logistics challenge.

The Solution

Right Solution

ICAT immediately jumped into action by picking up the sticks then making special arrangements to fly them to Sochi with an air partner that specialized in shipping to Russia. To complicate matters during the Olympics, there was an embargo for all orders going to Sochi for security purposes. Did that stop ICAT though? Absolutely not!

The Results


With country pride on the line, ICAT’s team in Moscow had the goods cleared in under 24 hours (this alone is unheard of in Russia) and delivered in Sochi! When you need a partner to handle your time-sensitive goods, ICAT is your reliable option no matter where you’re shipping!
