The Dubai-based logistics solution company and port operator DP World set to become an official partner of the F1 team starting 2023 season.

It’s a logistical challenge to get together an entire Formula 1 team and move from one venue to another, but McLaren can now leave all those hassles in the expert hands of DP World.

The Dubai-based logistics solution company has reached an agreement to become an official partner of the McLaren Formula 1 Team starting 2023 season and plans to make McLaren F1 Team’s supply chain faster, smarter, and more sustainable.

Zak Brown, CEO, McLaren Racing, said: “We are thrilled to welcome DP World to the McLaren family. Logistics is a significant challenge in a global sport like Formula 1, and DP World’s smart solutions will help us enhance the efficiency of our partner and supply chain network, contributing to performance on and off the track.”
