Wolt honors Georgian football team with new world record

Wolt set a new world record to celebrate the Georgian football team's participation in the European Football Championship. The company's symbolic delivery package traveled through 6 countries, and covered 4,000 kilometers in 12 days, to reach the Georgian team's base in Germany.

Ahead of their historic first UEFA match, the Georgian football players received a flag decorated with warm messages from the Wolt team, carrying both symbolic and emotional significance.

Shadiman Kharshiladze, a partner courier at Wolt, completed the record-breaking journey on a moped. This achievement marks a new world record in the delivery service industry, as no one has previously completed such a long-distance delivery by moped before.

According to Wolt, the idea emerged after the national team's victory on March 26, which set Georgia's participation in UEFA EURO 2024. Kharshiladze himself volunteered for the unprecedented and challenging mission, and this is how the record-breaking adventure began.

12 days after he set off, the Georgian players received the delivery at their base, an emotional moment just days before their crucial match, seeing them able to read messages written by the Wolt team on the flag, which conveyed love and support not only from the company, but also from Georgian sports fans.

Wolt emphasized that the safety of their partner courier was their top priority during this record-breaking route, and that he was insured to the nines throughout his trip. Company representatives kept in touch with Kharshiladze, offering encouragement and support during his delivery mission.

Upon arriving in Germany, Kharshiladze also received a gift from the Georgian football players: a team shirt signed by the athletes.

The flag, which might soon symbolize an even greater victory, will be displayed at the Museum of the Georgian Football Federation.

The team's first game in the championship will be held on June 18 in Dortmund, against Turkey. The Georgian national team will then play against the Czech Republic on June 22, and against Portugal on June 26.
