Turin – February 27, 2019
With the kick off of the 2019 season of the FIM Motocross World Championship in Patagonia this weekend, 31 stakeholders including MXGP & MX2 teams, suppliers and event organizer needed to get their motorbikes, spare parts and event material on time, in full and accurately at the Neuquén Motocross Circuit.
Team SEL delivered today, as planned, 70 crates, racing fuels and tires, for a total weight of over 38.000 kg, to the Argentine circuit.
The main cargo, collected at the Teams’ locations all around Europe few days before the departure, was shipped via air freight from Luxembourg on February, 22. Only a small part, the suppliers’ racing tires, was sent by ocean freight.
Once in Buenos Aires, the 80 motorbikes, spare parts and rest of the materials, after the customs clearance operations, were loaded in trucks and transported to the Neuquén racing circuit, where they were delivered to the respective owners.
At conclusion of the races on Sunday evening, all the crates will be picked up by staff SEL in the paddock and prepared for the return to Europe.
The shipping will depart after completion of all weighing, palletizing, re-export and custom clearance operations.
Team SEL have been working since weeks in order to grant a safe and smooth handling of the logistics operations outward and return.
“We are very happy to continue supporting with our services MXGP teams and their stakeholders for the new season. We wish you all good luck for a great start!” – said Roberto Borio, Project Manager SEL Logistics.
“As a long time partner, SEL is participating very actively in the development of the MXGP World Championship worldwide. The logistic to go to the Overseas Grand Prix is always a big challenge not only for the teams and riders but also for all the material related to the event itself (marketing, TV material, Time Keeping, etc…) and the efficiency of SEL has been proved over the years. We want to thank them to continue to invest in MXGP and to believe in Motocross.” – stated David Luongo, Youthstream Vice President.
