DHL Delivers Formula E For First Ever Zero-emissions Motorsports In New York City

Announced Date :  Jul 14, 2017

DHL, the world’s leading logistics company and the Logistics Partner of Formula E, successfully delivered the Championship, incl. the 40 electric racing cars, lithium-ion batteries, charging stations, garage equipment and track infrastructure for the ten teams that will compete in the Qualcomm New York City ePrix races in Brooklyn on July 15 and 16, to NYC – the second to last stop of the 2016/17 season which concludes in Montreal, Canada, in late July.
As a frontrunner in developing and providing sustainable logistics solutions, DHL also confirms its long-term commitment to the partnership with Formula E, recognizing the global all-electric auto racing championship as an excellent platform to help drive the continued development of e-mobility. The two organizations emphasize the importance and benefits of building innovative and sustainable mobility solutions while also minimizing the Championship’s carbon footprint with a specially tailored multi-modal approach, reducing air transport and leveraging rail, road and ocean based on calendar requirements.

“With the Formula E racing series, DHL, a pioneer in green logistics, is working alongside a pacesetter in clean auto racing with a vision to advance automotive technology at large. Handling the logistics for this championship presents a great opportunity to showcase how the transport of all the equipment needed to stage this great event can be done while minimizing the carbon footprint of the entire operation,” said Ken Allen, CEO, DHL Express. “Furthermore, Formula E provides a platform to engage with young urban audiences on sustainability which is the core of our marketing partnership with Formula E.”
