DOHA, Qatar, Jan. 13, 2015 / PRNewswire — DHL, the world’s leading logistics company, has scored its next goal for FC Bayern Munich by shipping key equipment to the Bundesliga champion’s winter training camp in Doha. DHL became an official platinum partner and the new international logistics and eCommerce full-service partner of FC Bayern Munich last year. The six-year agreement will see DHL use its global logistics and e-commerce expertise to help the world’s biggest football club – with 250,000 members – and almost 300 million supporters worldwide – expand its international presence and capitalize on its global merchandising potential.
DHL Trade Fairs and Events, the specialized DHL Global Forwarding, Freight subsidiary of the logistics giant which takes exclusive care of reliable and on-time logistics of trade fair and event goods, managed the 1,600 kg shipment in a flight from Germany to the training camp in Qatar on 9 January. The cargo included training clothes and equipment, special medical supplies, and others.
Vincenzo Scrudato, Managing Director DHL Trade Fairs & Events said “DHL has a long history and extensive experience working with leading international sports teams and global sporting events and it’s a great honor to be partnering FC Bayern Munich, Germany’s most successful football team and one of the world’s leading clubs. Like them, we know that the only way to be the best at what you do is by constantly working on your game to improve your performance and achieve your goals. That’s why DHL is top of the champion’s league when it comes to logistics in the international events and trade fair arena and our multi-national team is always on top of its game.”
DHL transported the cargo from Munich to the Hotel Grand Heritage Doha where the team is staying, next door to the Aspire Academy for Sports Excellence where the training camp is being set up. The winter training camp is scheduled to run until 17 January and will conclude with a friendly match in Saudi Arabia.
