DHL has announced a new three-year partnership with the world’s premier motorcycle racing championship, MotoGP.
The partnership will see DHL support the logistics needs of MotoGP and its sister championships, Moto2 and Moto3.
“This new partnership with MotoGP, the oldest of all motorsports world championships and the premier racing event on two wheels, further showcases that DHL is the provider of choice to the motorsports and automotive sectors,” said Ken Allen, CEO, DHL Express.
“We are very excited about having the opportunity to get behind the handlebars of the championship’s logistics operation and to offer high quality international shipping services to MotoGP.”
“I am very pleased to have reached this agreement with a company like DHL because the result will be very beneficial for both parties,” said Pau Serracanta, Managing Director, Commercial Area, Dorna.
“DHL will enjoy outstanding visibility at circuits, events and via the many broadcasting platforms MotoGP employs, plus they will benefit from being able to organize various activities for guests at MotoGP events.”

Each season, more than 80 bikes and 350 tons of equipment for the teams and the championship organisers need to be transported by sea, air and road across a total distance of approximately 90,000 km within just nine months.
