Over nine months in 2011 and 2012, the world’s top logistics team was proud to support the world’s ultimate sailing challenge as its Official Logistics Partner. As the teams battled the elements over 39,000 nautical miles, DHL had all hands on deck to handle all logistical needs, delivering everything from documents to 100-meter-long boat masts in record time. No stranger to turbulent waters and round-the-clock duty, DHL faced the waves head-on with its unbeatable international network.
