DHL and Formula 1 renew their partnership


With the FIA Formula 1 World Championship about to begin, DHL and Formula 1 have announced the extension of their long-standing global partnership.

DHL thus remains the Official Logistics Partner of Formula 1 for further years and will continue to be responsible for shipping world-class motorsport around the world.

2021 sees 23 destinations on the Formula 1 racing calendar, the largest number in the sport’s history, with DHL transporting race cars, fuel and oil, equipment for the racing teams and transmission technology.

“We are proud to continue our unique partnership for the years to come,” said Arjan Sissing, global head of brand marketing at DHL.

“Formula 1 has been delivering the ultimate in speed, precision and technology to its fans for over 1000 races and it is DHL who delivers Formula 1 across the globe. For more than four decades, our common values connect us with each other and made it possible to win any logistics races around the world, before the first tires touch the track. We are looking forward to defend our title in each of these races between the races.”

The transport volume of up to 1,400 tonnes have to be transported from one venue to the next within the shortest possible time and with great reliability. That’s why DHL employs a team of motorsports logistics specialists who work closely with Formula 1® management and the racing teams. Just like on the race track, it’s all about speed, precision and cutting-edge technology.

The 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship begins March 28, with the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2021 and closes December 12 with the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2021.
