(Antwerp, 28 September 2015) During the last weekend of August, Lewis Hamilton continued his reign of dominance of Formula 1 at the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa-Francorchamps. Hamilton is racing for the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team, which concluded a contract for all European races with DB Schenker Logistics a few months ago.

The contract runs for four years and includes all the European races, test and promotional events, including transportation and construction of the motorhome, transportation of racing vehicles and spare parts, and construction of engineering offices.

“Thanks to our expertise and the logistical know-how, which are of the same excellent quality in all of our subsidiaries, we can provide professional support to the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team for all the European races”, said Ulrich Pütz, the Managing Director of Schenker nv.”

DB Schenker provided five silver Mercedes Benz Actros tractor units for the transportation of the successful “Silver Arrows” race cars, which have earned the team so many prizes. The MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team drivers are Lewis Hamilton and his team mate Nico Rosberg, who are still in pole position after the race in Spa-Francorchamps. The team also won several races during last season. Lewis Hamilton became Formula 1 champion and the German team also won the Constructors Championship with the Mercedes-Benz W05 Hybrid.

Based in Antwerp, Schenker nv is one of the Belgian market’s leading integrated logistics service providers and employs 680 staff at eight branches: Antwerp, Brussels, Eupen, Mechelen, Zwevegem, Willebroek, Zaventem and Zeebrugge.
