Groupe CAT has continued to consolidate its position as a special partner for vehicle logistics and vehicle preparation with manufacturers exhibiting at the Paris motor show.
Every year, for over 20 years now, Groupe CAT teams have assisted international vehicle manufacturers in the preparation and installation of their vehicles throughout the event.
Several weeks prior to the show, Groupe CAT receives and prepares the vehicles to ‘showroom’ mode at its site in Valenton: activation/deactivation of certain functionalities for reasons of safety and installation of specific accessories. The vehicles are then transported to the exhibition centre and installed following the strict specifications of each brand. Finally, the Groupe CAT teams ensure a very detailed aesthetic preparation, again following the specifications of each manufacturer.
After the dedicated press and networking days, the stands are reconfigured overnight and the vehicles changed, to exhibit those best adapted to the general public.
Throughout the show, a 24/7 aesthetic and technical maintenance team is on standby for the manufacturers, ensuring that every vehicle is always presented in the best possible manner.
After the show, Groupe CAT takes charge of regrouping the vehicles at its Valenton logistics platform, including an expert appraisal for any damage/deterioration and carrying out any repairs necessary.
Over 30 employees from the Group’s different French subsidiaries are mobilised throughout the show. They have built up significant expertise in car show procedures, thus positioning Groupe CAT as the foremost logistics operator on this market.
