Boomerang Carnets Readies for the Olympic Games in Paris

Friday, June 28, 2024

Call Boomerang Carnets, Your Carnet Specialists

The Olympic Games Paris 2024 are July 26 to August 11.  National teams the world over will converge to compete in a wide range of sports.  This year, the International Olympic Committee added breakdancing, officially known as Breaking, as the first dance sport ever included in the Olympics, making its debut at the Paris Games.  While we at boomerang carnets® highly appreciate the athleticism and art of Breaking, we humbly ask: why Breaking and not boomerang throwing?  As a proud 20-year sponsor for the United States Boomerang Association and the World Boomerang Championships we throw out the question, “How much longer will it take?”  We eagerly await your return.

Let’s Move and Celebrate!

The Pre-Paris Games initiative, “Let’s Move and Celebrate!” aims to inspire and encourage everyone to embrace the joy of movement.  At boomerang carnets, we not only recognize the vital importance of this campaign but also how it captures our feeling every time an ATA Carnet is used.  ATA Carnets have long been a crucial part of the Olympics by saving athletic teams, vendors, sponsors, and broadcast news/media networks on the payment of import-duty and -taxes for gear, equipment, and tools of the trade “joyfully” moved across international borders.  They also expedite and ensure smooth customs clearance.  

  ATA Carnet Document

ATA Carnets Used for International Sports Competitions

The ATA Carnet is an internationally accepted customs document for temporarily exported merchandise or goods.  It allows cross border movement of those goods import-duty and -tax free into 87+ carnet countries and territories for up to a year.  The ATA Carnet is known as the "Merchandise Passport" for boomerang freight®.  The ATA acronym, in French and English, stands for "Admission Temporaire|Temporary Admission".

Sports Equipment

The range of sports equipment and gear temporarily moving in and out of Paris for competition will be vast.  Sports gear and equipment allowed on an ATA Carnet include bicycles, archery equipment, canoes, gloves and protective gear, live horses, riding equipment, rackets, sail boats, sails, nets, oars, surfboards, skateboards, uniforms, and pole vault poles. 

Media, Broadcasters, Vendors

Additionally, vendors/sponsors and news crews traveling or shipping to Paris will utilize ATA Carnets for their merchandise and equipment, cameras, antenna, gear, and technology needed for communications and broadcast coverage.
