DHL To Deliver For Andretti Autosport

DHL has signed a multi-year sponsorship agreement that will make it the Official Shipping and Logistics sponsor of Andretti Autosport. DHL will serve as a co-primary sponsor of the new car driven by Ryan Hunter-Reay and as an associate sponsor for the car driven by the team’s newest member, Mike Conway.

The sponsorship will include VIP hospitality platforms for DHL and its customers in major U.S., Canadian & Latin American markets and media, as well as opportunities to provide shipping and logistics services in support of Andretti Autosport’s global operations.

“Andretti Autosport has a history of success grounded in the same attributes required to be the First Choice among logistics providers for our customers – speed, reliability, and a “team” spirit focused on putting the “fans” – our customers – at the center of everything we do,” said Wolfgang Giehl, senior vice president for Corporate Brand Marketing for DHL. “We’re pleased to sponsor this winning motorsports team which provides an excellent opportunity to promote the DHL brand and align with Andretti Autosport in U.S. and global markets.”

The new yellow, red and white DHL IndyCar, which will make its debut on March 27th, will be unveiled at the DHL regional headquarters in Plantation, FL., on Tuesday, March 8 with Hunter-Reay and DHL staffers in attendance.

“We are very excited to welcome DHL into our sponsor family at Andretti Autosport,” said John Lopes, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Andretti Autosport. “This is a partnership that was born out of our great, long-standing relationship with DHL’s North American supply chain division, Exel. As a global industry leader, DHL is a brand that we are proud to add to our portfolio. We look forward to developing this relationship and helping DHL strengthen its brand presence and international specialty positioning.”
