Formula 1 logistics is about more than just transport. DB SCHENKERsportsevents is performing a variety of value-added services for the Mercerdes-AMG Petronas motorsport team, including building the team motorhome.
DB Schenker builds motorhome for Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport
The Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport motorhome welcomes drivers, team members, media representatives and guests throughout the European Grand Prix weekends. Discussions, meetings and more relaxed get-togethers take place here, and all team members and guests are spoiled with great food.
As the logistics partner to Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, DB SCHENKERsportsevents is responsible for transporting, constructing and dismantling the motorhome at all European Grands Prix.
Homecoming - Everything ready for the team to move straight in
When the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team arrives at the race circuit, DB Schenker has already completed all the transport and construction work. The building is up, the keys are handed over and the weekend of racing can begin. DB Schenker continuously adjusts its processes as circumstances require.
In the back-to-back races, for example, the clock soon starts ticking: the motorhome modules must be transported from one race circuit to another and rebuilt in less than 36 hours. Up to 100 drivers are on duty for the back-to-back races. A challenge for the entire DB Schenker team, which consists of some 20 regular staff members who accompany the racing circus throughout the season.
