The ABB FIA Formula E world championship announced on Wednesday that they have extended their commercial partnership with DHL.
The new agreement will see DHL continue as global logistics partner to the all-electric racing series.
Arjan Sissing, Head of Global Brand Marketing at Deutsche Post DHL Group said:
“Deutsche Post DHL Group will be investing seven billion euros in clean operations and climate-neutral logistics through to 2030, which includes major investments to its fleet of e-vehicles. “This – along with our goal to achieve zero-emission logistics by 2050 – is a major, industry-leading commitment on the part of DHL. But we also recognize that the small incremental developments and steps – the everyday engagement and commitment on the part of individuals and organizations around the globe – are so important to moving the needle. The DHL & Formula E Together Green Award is meant to call attention to these heroes and hopefully amplify the impact they are having.”
ABB FIA Formula E CEO Jamie Reigle said:
“DHL have been an integral partner to Formula E from inception and we are delighted to extend and enhance our collaboration. Transporting the freight is a fundamental aspect to the running of Formula E and DHL continue to do so with a passion for driving forward new sustainable measures which have relevance throughout the logistics industry. The new DHL & Formula E Together Green Award will elevate our partnership to a new level by providing a renewed platform to showcase sustainable initiatives at every race weekend. We look forward to working with DHL to set the standard in sustainable logistics for sport and inspire fans around the world to take actions to fight climate change.”
