Marken Operational Update: Olympic Games Paris 2024

Marken remains committed to delivering lifesaving drugs with quality excellence to our clients and their patients. This year, with the Olympic games occurring in Paris, we understand and anticipate delays in deliveries and collections from sites in France, in areas where the Olympics and Paralympics will be organized. We are proactively monitoring all transportation routes leading up to this grand event and our experts are working on solutions, with contingency plans in place. We will communicate necessary updates directly to our clients, on a case-by-case basis, leading up to the event.


  • Ceremony – July 26
  • Olympics – July 24 to August 11
  • Paralympics – August 28 to September 8


  • AIRLINES – Marken has received confirmation that no impact is expected from the airlines at this time. Our team is in daily contact with the regional airlines to anticipate any disruption that may occur during these series of events. 
  • ROAD – The organizers of the Olympic games released a transportation plan for every day of the event in Paris. The transportation plan is available here. A security plan has also been released by the authorities, which cover the accessibility & restrictions throughout this event. Marken will proactively work with the sites impacted, to ensure collection and delivery is successfully performed without any delay. 
  • OCEAN & TRAIN- No impact is expected at this time.
  • SURROUNDING REGIONS – Minimal impacts are expected from the surrounding regions, as a portion of the event will happen outside of Paris. 

*This situation is fluid and we will update as we get closer to the event.

Understanding why we must adapt, continuously asking ourselves how we can change what matters is how we keep on delivering it.
