The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) and DHL signed today a 4-year contract making DHL Official Logistics Partner for the events promoted solely by the FIM.
The agreement was signed at the FIM headquarters in Mies. The ceremony was attended by Dr. Thomas Christ, President of DHL Logistics (Switzerland) Ltd.; Mr Hansruedi Nacht, DHL Head of Sports & Events; Mr Vito Ippolito, FIM President; Mr Guy Maitre, FIM CEO and Mr Olivier Godallier, FIM’s Marketing & Communications Director.
Dr. Thomas Christ President of DHL Logistics (Switzerland) Ltd, said: "Our partnership with the world of motorsport mirrors the dynamics of our ever moving range of logistics services. And indeed we keep the motorcycles moving but our race starts when the engines have crossed the finish line. Then DHL is racing against the clock from Le Mans to Doha, from Europe to Australia – and when the motorcycles are again lined up and ready to go, all of them, just in time, we have won our race. FIM and DHL share the passion for speed and precision all over the globe."
Vito Ippolito, FIM President stated: "DHL will provide several FIM Championships with the highest possible level of transportation services. In addition to this important partnership, DHL will offer good deals for all our National Federations, Continental Unions, Organisers, Teams and Riders. The FIM is very proud to welcome DHL, the global market leader of the international express and logistics industry, into the motorcycling family!”
