Official Founding & Logistics Partner of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, DHL, will become Race Title Partner for the 2021 DHL Valencia E-Prix.
Building on a long-running relationship between DHL and Formula E that stretches back to the series’ inaugural campaign, DHL will link up with the championship for Rounds 5 and 6 of the 2020/21 season on April 24/25 from the Circuit Ricardo Tormo – Formula E’s first race event at the permanent race circuit, located on the outskirts of Valencia, Spain.
The partnership will see DHL turn one of the circuit’s grandstands green to highlight its GoGreen worldwide environmental protection programme, an initiative that showcases DHL’s strong sense of responsibility and its commitment to helping its customers grow sustainably.
GoGreen is helping advance DHL’s wider goal, known as Mission2050: Zero Emissions, and the company’s drive to reduce all logistics-related emissions to net zero by the year 2050. To get there, DHL is investing in greener operations, supporting environmental projects and offering GoGreen services to support our customers.
As Formula E’s Official Logistics Partner, DHL is responsible for moving Formula E’s teams and travelling infrastructure around the globe as efficiently as possible – with DHL designing a tailored approach, complementing air transport with rail, road and sea routes to minimise emissions.
Arjan Sissing, Head of Brand Marketing at Deutsche Post DHL Group said: “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."
Olivier Bremont, Chief Commercial Officer at Formula E said: “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.”
