Since starting its engines in 2012, the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) has offered incredible competition, establishing itself as one of the world’s most revered and respected motorsport series. WEC stands out in that it tests not only the stamina and skill of the drivers, but also the durability and reliability of the vehicle. Fans love the excitement and suspense of witnessing which car and team will go the distance. With independent groups – aka “privateers” – racing alongside global auto manufacturers, WEC delivers real world relevance for all.
The 2016 calendar for the first time features nine races in Europe, Latin and North America, Asia and the Middle East. And WEC is living up to its promise of another spectacular season of racing.
As the Official Logistics Partner of the FIA WEC since the very beginning, DHL has been the trusted logistics provider delivering the Championship to its growing list host venues around the world. With five races outside Europe this year, DHL will be handling some 2,100 tons of air freight and 250 TEUs of ocean freight, including nearly 200,000 liters of fuel and some 8,000 tires.
This ‘race behind the race’ is a true test of the stamina and skill of our people, as well as the durability and reliability of our network – a challenge we readily accept. The different racing categories along with the prototypes and GT cars, private teams and car manufactures require a broad range of services that reflects what we deliver every day to our customers around the world.
We’re proud to support the FIA World Endurance Championship and contribute to its growing success.
