DHL, official logistics partner of the Oasis Solar Challenge
DHL Selected as the Logistical Partner for the Abu Dhabi Oasis Solar Challenge 2022
The newly launched Abu Dhabi Oasis Solar Challenge has secured the support of global logistics leader DHL for the 2022 event.
DHL Middle East has thrown their full support and technical expertise behind Abu Dhabi’s newest sports technology event - the Oasis Solar Challenge.
“The Oasis Solar Challenge mirrors DHL’s goal of achieving net-zero logistic based carbon emissions by 2050. It’s an ambitious target for which we also look to utilizing technologies developed in other industries, such as motorsports. DHL is happy to be able to provide operational support for events such as these” said Mr. Kapil Grover, Country Manager Abu Dhabi.
DHL will be responsible for delivering the fifteen competing team's cars and equipment to Abu Dhabi from around the globe. With teams coming from almost every continent to compete, the logistical requirements associated with this event are something that only an industry leader such as DHL could handle.
H.E Mr. Abdulla Jasim Al Nowais, Chairman of the Al Nowais Group that are promoting the event said, “The Oasis Solar Challenge is an ambitious, sustainable energy-based project for Abu Dhabi with the world’s top solar car teams competing. The solar cars while robust in design and construction, need special handling, much the same as the high-tech Formula One® Grand Prix cars. With this in mind, we considered the only company suitable for such a complex logistics task was DHL Middle East”.
Mr. Al Nowais said, “DHL Middle East will work closely with both the event organisers, Jukwaa Events, and the competing teams to ensure that every car and its maintenance gear arrives safely and on time in Abu Dhabi.”
“The Oasis Solar Challenge 2022 will be made possible because of the logistics planning and efforts of DHL” he emphasised.
