Formula 1®

The World’s Fastest Logistics Race
For Formula 1® racing teams, one of the biggest battles throughout the season is over well before the cars roll out for Friday’s first practice round: the vast logistical operation required to get all of the teams’ cars and equipment to the circuit – a behind-the-scenes effort we like to call the logistics “race behind the race.”

Hand in Hand with FOM Cargo, DHL navigates the complexities of this race as F1’s Official Logistics Partner. And it’s a long race, too. Nowadays each team travels around 160,000 kilometres (100,000 miles) between races and test sessions each year.

Following more than 30 years of involvement, DHL’s partnership with Formula 1® performs like fine-tuned, turbocharged power unit – a well-oiled efficiency absolutely vital to a series that races one weekend in Kuala Lumpur and the next in Bahrain. As the cars cross the finish line on Sunday, our team is gripping the steering wheel in anticipation of the logistics battle ahead.

As Official Logistics Partner, we have a proven track record for winning the world’s fastest logistics race time and again – delivering high-speed, ultra-efficient motorsports logistics to get F1 onto the world's starting grids.
