As the team counts down to achieving its Net Carbon Zero by 2030 goal, a considerable topic of conversation both from a sustainability and financial point of view is the logistics of the race team. Therefore, the partnership with Flex Box, who are a global leader in the logistics industry, is being harnessed further to meet the challenges ahead by the Italian based team. The company’s vast experience in the cargo industry will support the team to implement its current logistics plan, converting air freight usage to sea freight shipments as often as possible across the 2023 Formula 1 calendar.
Henrik Nielsen, Flex Box Ltd. Founder, commented: “I am looking forward to building on our partnership with Scuderia AlphaTauri, a team that shares our ambitions and values, and supporting them with their upcoming logistical challenges.”
Marco Perrone, Scuderia AlphaTauri’s Head of Sporting Direction, added: “With 23 races on the calendar, both the physical movements of the team’s freight and the financial implications of this in the cost-cap era mean that we need to have a better understanding of each shipment that we make. Therefore, we have enlisted the expertise of Flex Box in a key advisor capacity. Furthermore, this will allow us to lessen the carbon impact of our logistics and achieve the team’s sustainability goals.”
