Your Colissimo deliveries during the Paris 2024 Olympic Games!

Updated June 10th 2024

 

As you know, France, and more specifically Paris and the Ile-de-France region, will be hosting the Olympic Games from 26 July to 11 August 2024, followed by the 2024 Paralympic Games from 28 August to 8 September 2024. As an official partner of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, we are fully mobilised to ensure the continuity of your deliveries despite the expected disruptions.

For several months now, our teams have been preparing for this major event. We have studied in detail the traffic plans and access restrictions put in place by the authorities in order to adapt our resources and guarantee the delivery of orders as quickly as possible.

 

Our commitments during this exceptional period:

  • Reactivity: We constantly monitor the situation and adapt our procedures and resources in real time to deal with the unexpected
  • Innovation: We are deploying innovative solutions to gain access to regulated areas and ensure the continuity of service, using cyclo-logistics in particular
  • Communication: We will keep you up to date here on a regular basis and provide you with the information you need to optimise your deliveries. Remember to bookmark this page and check the notifications in your customer area

The information we provide to date is subject to the decisions of the authorities, which may change in real time, depending on current events and safety conditions.  You can count on the commitment of all our teams, as we have done in the past, to ensure your satisfaction and that of your customers.

Cyclo-logistics for the Paris 2024 Games

Vélo cargo livraison 100% décarbonée dans Paris

In 2018, we made a commitment to decarbonise Colissimo deliveries in Paris by the time of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. This promise has been kept, starting in 2023, with the massive deployment of cyclo-logistics, which should enable us to access the vast majority of restricted areas.

100% of our deliveries within restricted perimeters will be made using soft modes (on foot or by cargo bike).

France's largest network of cash points available everywhere during the Paris 2024 Games

With more than 26,000 points of contact available throughout France, our network of pick-up points will enable you to deliver to all French customers directly to a La Poste point of contact chosen when the order is placed on your website, or to choose a new delivery location in the event of absence (or an unforeseen event) during a home delivery.

Your customers will also be able to return their parcel using this method.

Whether you use our  "Web Service Point Retrait" or a points file (EDI), the open and available points of withdrawal will be updated daily so that your customers can have their parcels delivered without any surprises.

There's a solution for every period and every scope!

From 18th to 25th July 2024, the site of the opening ceremony and the banks of the Seine will be subject to traffic restrictions set by the Préfecture de Police. This is to allow temporary infrastructure and security elements to be put in place.   

The red and grey perimeters will be active 24 hours a day. This means that to access the grey perimeters, all local residents and professionals will need to obtain a ‘Games Pass’.
