  • DHL is announced as Global Logistics Partner of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY race series ahead of the Mexico City race
  • The Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY is the world’s first all-electric production-based series and supports the ABB FIA Formula E Championship 
  • Nine races remaining until Jaguar crowns winner of inaugural series 
  • DHL has been Jaguar Land Rover’s lead logistics partner for 23 years
 
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 17 February 2019– Jaguar Racing announced a partnership with the world’s leading logistics company, DHL, to act as Global Logistics Partner for the new Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series. 
 
In its inaugural season, the eTROPHY will visit nine cities around the globe. It is the world’s first all-electric championship for production-based cars. 
 
DHL will organise the logistics and transport all of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY racecars, ABB charging systems, garages, spare parts and technical equipment. DHL has more than 35 years of experience in motorsports logistics, including the job of transporting the freight for the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.
 
Jaguar Racing and DHL jointly developed a multi-modal logistics solution encompassing land, sea and air freight to deliver the equipment, safely, efficiently and on-time. Through early consultation, DHL was able to help reduce the championship’s freight requirements from two aircrafts to one Boeing 747-800 freighter. The two brands are working together to develop innovative and bespoke packaging solutions to minimise freight and thus improve the championship’s ecological footprint. 
 
Marion Barnaby, Championship Manager, Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY said: “We are proud to welcome DHL as the Global Logistics Partner of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series. As we follow the races around the world, the role of DHL is imperative to the success of our race series. They are global leaders in logistics and with an international championship travelling to four continents we have the best possible partner.” 
 
Antonio Arranz, DHL Express Mexico Country Manager, added: “We’ve enjoyed a successful partnership with Formula E since September 2013 and it was natural to extend this partnership to include the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY. It’s a fantastic opportunity to be driving the electrification journey with Jaguar as well as organising the logistics and shipping all of Jaguar’s eTROPHY equipment around the world.”
 
The extended collaboration builds on the 23-year relationship between DHL and Jaguar Land Rover in the production and transport of its vehicles from manufacturing plants to customers around the world.
 
Jaguar made history with the debut of the world’s first all-electric production based championship, which took place in the historic surroundings of Ad Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, in December 2018.
