The FIA Formula E Championship is a global logistics challenge from day one.  The inaugural season already includes an international line-up of 10 teams competing in the hearts of 10 of the world’s leading cities.  40 race cars, sensitive lithium-ion batteries and all the teams’ spare parts and equipment need to be transported safely, on time and, most importantly, sustainably from city to city.  Formula E is tapping DHL to do the job as a Founding Partner and Official Logistics Partner.  With DHL’s many years in motorsports logistics, not to mention solid Green credentials, the choice was clear.

The world’s leading logistics company packs over 30 years’ in international motorsports logistics, successfully delivering global events like Formula 1, the World Touring Car Championship and the World Endurance Championship, where DHL is also Official Logistics Partner.  Add to that the company’s vast city logistics expertise and its role as a pioneer in Green logistics and you get a perfect match for this ground-breaking championship.

DHL’s partnership with Formula E is a special one that goes beyond moving the event around the world. “The FIA Formula E Championship is much more than just another motorsports series,” says Ken Allen, CEO DHL Express.  “It provides a global platform for promoting sustainability and the future of mobility, addressing one of the world’s most pressing challenges.  As a pioneer in developing environmentally friendly logistics solutions, DHL is committed to the same future as Formula E.”

Through its GoGreen environmental protection program, DHL aims to understand its carbon footprint and work to improve carbon efficiency for its customers.  These insights are being leveraged to ensure the Formula E is truly sustainable.  In addition to employing the most climate friendly logistics in motorsports, DHL also offers emission offsets by investing in internationally recognized climate protection projects.
