Paris Olympics
What You Should Know?

With less than a year before the Opening Ceremony of the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, it is important that moving companies around the world planning moves to and from France are well prepared to manage those relocations and set expectations for customers.

Paris is expecting almost 10 million spectators, over 10,000 athletes, 6,000 accredited reporters, and 31,000 volunteers to gather in the city and surrounding areas for the Olympic Games and this will result in one of the biggest security operations the city has witnessed.


What We Already Know:
A significant number of roads in Paris will be affected by special Olympic lanes reserved for athletes, officials, and journalists. The Olympic lanes are expected to operate from July 1, 2024, and remain in operation until September 15, 2024. Important roads impacted include the A1 between Porte de la Chapelle and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, the northern part of the ring road, and the city center.

Our relocation management partners should also plan ahead in securing necessary visas on behalf of their transferees and expect a shortage of temporary accommodation at a much higher rate.

Neer Service will work with our partners and their customers to minimize disruption and delays, depending upon the origin or delivery address.

What We Anticipate:

We expect heightened security at all seaports and airports, well in advance of the Summer Olympics. This means that it will become even more important that all documentation relating to customs clearance is clear, complete, and accurate to avoid delays.

It is also expected that container haulage capacity from the main ports of entry will also be stretched, both before the Olympics begin and following the closure of the Games.

Neer Service will continue to keep you updated on more news impacting moves to and from France in the month’s leading up to the event.
