Fast and furious with Ferrari

CEVA Logistics has signed a new multi-year contract to continue providing all logistics services for Scuderia Ferrari’s cars and equipment during Grand Prix events.

With a relationship that began in 2022, CEVA has been transporting Ferrari equipment around the world, adhering to the strict time frames for international racing. This year’s Formula 1 World Championship which, for the first time, will include 24 events worldwide, starts on 2 March in Bahrain, ending on 8 December in Abu Dhabi.

“Since 2022, we have demonstrated that we have a lot in common with Ferrari,” said Deputy CEO, CEVA Logistics, Olivier Storch. “Like Scuderia Ferrari, we are constantly designing and improving our solutions, we implement more sustainable solutions and reduce our environmental footprint and innovation is a key factor in our success.”

In 2023 CEVA was able to organise a world-first rail transport service to deliver Scuderia Ferrari’s equipment between three North American Grand Prix, which reduced the carbon footprint by 90 per cent compared to air transport, and by 32 percent compared to road transport alone.

Modern motorsport places increasingly greater challenges on its logistical needs, explained Ferrari’s Chief Racing Revenue Officer, Lorenzo Giorgetti.

“Compared to just a few years ago, there are many more Formula 1 races held outside Europe, as the calendar visits four continents,” he said. “This hectic pace means it is vital for Scuderia Ferrari to be able to count on a world-class logistics partner like CEVA Logistics, as it guarantees an on-time and precise service.”

Scuderia Ferrari has taken part in every edition of the Formula 1 World Championship since 1950 and holds the record for the most Grand Prix wins, with 243 victories and 16 Constructors’ World Championships.
