30 days to go until the Olympics 2012

Vygon has been preparing for the Olympics by working with Trusts affected and reassuring them that deliveries will still be made.   

A number of measures have been put in place to ensure we can support our customers including:

  • Night time deliveries 
  • A new carrier – Movianto for all London deliveries 
  • An out-of-hours emergency response team 
  • Greater stock holding at Vygon to cover expected increases in demand before and during the event.


The Olympics 2012 will have a huge impact on London with an expected 500,000 additional people in London per day and on the busiest days this could reach 800,000. That’s four Swindons!
