Vendée Globe 2008
Kapsch TrafficCom AG went round the world – with the Vendée Globe 2008. One of the last true adventures, the Vendée Globe is a single-handed 100-day yacht race through some of planet Earth’s harshest waters in which 20 of the world’s best skippers compete to be fastest around the world.
After working hard to secure a pioneering and leading role within the forward-looking area of traffic telematics over the last ten years, Kapsch TrafficCom now has a worldwide network of subsidiary companies with over 700 employees. The reason for its involvement as sponsor of Vendée Globe 2008 is for KapschTrafficCom the unique challenge inherent in this sporting event - business also throws up virtually insuperable problems that can be overcome and brought to a successful conclusion with the right level of commitment from the staff.
