Logistics on Two Wheels
MotoGPTM is the world’s premier motorcycle racing championship. Each year thousands of fans watch the top riders on the planet race state-of-the-art, purpose-built racing motorcycles designed only for professional use on the circuit.
Since the series began in 1949, MotoGPTM has visited locations the world over, establishing a passionate international fan base in fourteen countries and four continents, from Australia to Argentina and Malaysia to Spain.
As you might expect, a championship of this scale requires masterful logistics and planning. As Official Logistics Partner, DHL manages the logistics for MotoGP™, Moto2™ and Moto3™, working closely with Dorna Sports, and the various teams and suppliers. We provide a range of services for MotoGP™, covering everything from freight transportation by air, ocean, rail, and road to urgent express deliveries overnight.
DHL has more than 35 years of experience working with the motorsport industry. This means we can provide hard-won knowledge and expertise to ensure that even the most fragile motor parts reach the pit lane on time, having been meticulously packed and handled.
The finely-tuned racing bikes require specialist care and temperature-controlled transportation, but we also handle other essential team equipment with equal attention to detail, be it tyres, tools and spare parts or the pit box interior.
In addition, DHL has an in-depth and thorough understanding of customs and transport regulations in all markets to guarantee that there are no delays along the way. This is crucial as during the Series, there are often back to back race weekends when DHL has only 36 hours to deliver every piece of vital equipment from one pit lane to the next.
Although the Championship series runs from March to November, the behind-the-scenes planning is a full-time job, nearly 365 days of the year. This is where our experience and know-how comes to the fore. We take pride in ensuring every last detail is in place, and that the ‘race before the race’ runs seamlessly and on-time.
