World-leading logistics for the world’s top sliders.
What do you call elite athletes in high-tech sleds barreling down icy tracks at speeds up to 150 km/h, withstanding 5 Gs of force as they steer the perfect line through breakneck turns? You might call it bobsled or skeleton; we like to call it the “Formula 1 of winter” – either way, it combines raw power, speed and finesse like no other sport on ice.
As the world leader in logistics, DHL is proud to partner with Germany’s Bobsleigh, Luge and Skeleton Federation (BSD), the world #1 in bobsled. Nobody dominates the ice tunnel like Team Germany, which recently hoisted 25 gold, 25 silver and 19 bronze medals at the 2020 World Cup season.
As exclusive Logistics Partner, DHL manages the transport of all BSD equipment – 8 tonnes of gear, including 20,000 different pieces – to races across Europe and North America. With decades of experience in Formula 1 racing and other world-class sporting events, we pride ourselves on delivering the kind of speed and precision handling it takes to safely transport state-of-the-art equipment around the globe on very tight schedules.
As Premium Partner to the BSD, our red and yellow DHL logo also adorns the sleds and suits of its men’s and women’s teams. We’re thrilled to continue our longstanding partnership with the BSD through to the 2022 Winter Olympics – and can’t wait to help “push” Germany’s wintertime speed demons to new records. We also can’t wait for our next fan sweepstakes! In 2020 we had 2,500 bobsled buffs taking part in this season highlight, with the two luckiest getting V.I.P. treatment at the World Cup at Königssee – and an unforgettable run down the course with one of Team Germany’s world champs.
