The operation - organized by DHL, WTCC official logistics partner, with support from Hapag-Lloyd - kicked off on Sunday, September 4, in the paddock of Valencia's Circuit Ricardo Tormo, immediately after the championship's Spanish event. Cars and spare parts were loaded on twenty-three highcube containers and then trucked to the harbour. The total weight to be shipped was 115 tons.
After the arrival in Singapore the containers will be loaded on another vessel, the NYK Venus that is due to leave on September 30 and dock on October 10 in Nagoya's harbour, from where the containers will be trucked to Suzuka circuit that is about 70 km away and will host the WTCC 19th and 20th round on October 23.
