The ABB FIA Formula E world championship announced on Thursday that global logistics company, DHL has been named as the title sponsor for this weekend’s double-header Valencia ePrix in Spain and in doing so the company has expanded their role with the all-electric racing series as they are also the global logistics partner to the series.
Speaking about the news, Ardjan Sissing, Head of Brand Marketing with Deutche Post DHL Group commented saying:
We look forward to delivering an action-packed double-header for the first time in Spain. Formula E is a sustainable racing series with a combination of innovation and future viability, in the same way that Deutsche Post DHL is in the field of logistics.
“The technical developments being advanced in Formula E in the area of electromobility are significant because the racing series serves as a platform for testing new technologies. Other sectors, including the transport and logistics industry, are also benefiting from this pioneering spirit, but will also add value through tailor-made logistics motorsport solution which we can source from out of our decades of experience.
Chief Commercial Officer with ABB FIA Formula E Olivier Bremont commented on the news saying:
DHL has shared Formula E’s journey from the start. We are united in our ambition to counteract climate change and work together continually to reduce our carbon footprint while drawing attention to the need for others to do the same. DHL’s GoGreen plans in Valencia are a meaningful symbol of their Mission2050 work and we’re proud to partner with them in bringing it to life.
