Delivery Management for Events – MDS for COP26

 

 

Zone Manager implemented delivery management solutions for the COP26 summit. Zone Manager’s MDS solution was utilised to schedule deliveries and collections, as well as appropriate vehicle searches, to the highly secure site at the SEC.

MDS for Highly Secure Events

 

In 2021, from the 31st of October to the 13th of November, the UK hosted the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP26). The summit took place in Glasgow at a secure site at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC). The parties were brought together to discuss and develop actions to move towards the climate goals set out by the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

With such a high-profile event, logistic and security approaches had to be watertight to ensure the 120 world leaders and 37,457 delegates were safe and organised appropriately.

Zone Manager worked with Stadium Management Ltd to implement delivery management solutions for the summit. Zone Manager’s MDS solution was utilised to schedule deliveries and collections, as well as appropriate vehicle searches, to the highly secure site at the SEC. With permitted delivery windows changing throughout the different phases of the summit, Zone Manager’s MDS was instrumental in ensuring the efficient management of deliveries to site. Information stored on the system was used during the outer permitter checks to support security procedures.

Due to the scale of the event, Zone Manager also provided on site support to ensure everything ran to schedule. Zone Manager is a market innovator in Delivery Management for Events, and the tailored MDS is the first of its kind in the industry.
