FIA WORLD ENDURANCE CHAMPIONSHIP
Logistics That Goes the Distance
WEC brings the spirit of the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours Endurance race to a worldwide audience and is now sanctioned by the FIA – the motorsports industry’s governing body.
From the start, the organizers knew that in order for the series to run smoothly, there was a need for outstanding performance in logistics as well, particularly as the races not only test the stamina and skill of the drivers but also the durability and reliability of their cars.
Recognizing DHL’s longstanding experience and expertise in the area of motorsports logistics, they appointed DHL exclusive Logistics Partner of FIA WEC shortly after the series was launched in 2012. The 2019-2020 FIA WEC season will kick off with the 4 Hours of Silverstone on September 1 and will conclude at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June 13-14, 2020, visiting 8 iconic race tracks around the world.
The partnership with WEC is the perfect showcase for our professional logistics capabilities, as the range of services we deliver to the Championship organizers and teams very much reflects what we do for everyday customers. Our role includes booking of planes and managing customs clearance of freight whether it’s travelling by air, ground or sea. We work with the teams to ensure precision of export and import documentation which is vital to ensure smooth on-time delivery and we also prepare load-plans, provide packing materials and handle ad-hoc shipments.
DHL teams are made up of highly skilled and dedicated professionals who feel passionate about playing their own part in every thrilling event. Whilst the drivers may be battling it out on the track, DHL and WEC’s own experts work together in the paddocks and behind the scenes to ensure that every detail is perfect and that everything runs impeccably.
FIA WEC is all about speed, perfection and endurance and these are the very qualities they look for from DHL. We are proud to deliver them every single time.
