DHL and Formula 1 have agreed on a multi-year extension that will see DHL, the world-leading logistics company, maintain its position as the longest-standing Global Partner of F1. The extended commitment is a testament to the unprecedented growth that F1 has experienced over recent years, as DHL continues to support the delivery of Grands Prix and F1 Events worldwide as an Official Logistics Partner.

Huge strides have been made by Formula 1 to reach its Net Zero 2030 target, thanks to DHL working alongside logistics experts within F1 to identify innovative solutions to operate more sustainably. This continued collaboration will further reduce logistics-related carbon emissions in the coming years.

In 2023, the use of biofuel-powered trucks during the European leg of the season resulted in an average reduction of logistics-related emissions by 83% and this year, the fleet will more than double in size to 37 trucks. DHL has also switched to using more fuel-efficient Boeing 777 planes that reduce carbon emissions by 17% compared to traditional aircraft. For select European races on the 2024 calendar, DHL will use a new motorhome that will further reduce carbon emissions. Equipped with solar panels, charging and recycling stations, the motorhome will be launched later in the season and transported using a biofuel-powered truck.

Over the two decades that DHL and Formula 1 have worked together, the sport has experienced significant growth. DHL has been at the forefront of delivering the Fastest Lap and Fastest Pit Stop awards, two of a race weekend’s most coveted honours. The multi-year extension signifies a new, longer-term commitment to deliver the world’s most excellent sports and entertainment spectacle with innovation, inclusivity, and sustainability.

Jonny Haworth, Director of Commercial Partnerships, Formula 1, said:

As our longest-standing partner, DHL has become such a crucial part of the delivery of our events, so we’re delighted to continue that successful collaboration for many more years. Our partnership has seen the sport transform and grow, and DHL has been hugely supportive in our transition to becoming a more sustainable sport. This will continue to be critical as we move towards 2030, and as sustainable logistics continue to develop, I look forward to seeing the positive innovations that come next.

Arjan Sissing, Head of Global Brand Marketing, DHL Group, said:

In addition to renewing our partnership, we are proud to be the sport’s longest-standing Global Partner, marking DHL’s 20th anniversary as the Official Logistics Partner of Formula 1, delivering the race between the races. Both companies share a strong commitment to sustainability goals, and as pioneers in green logistics, we are delighted to maintain our collaboration with Formula 1 to achieve these objectives together.
