DHL, the world’s most international company, is proud to be partnering with Susie Goodall in the historic 2018 Golden Globe Race. As the leading express services provider, we’re bearing the major logistical responsibilities of the challenge, leaving Susie free to concentrate on her mission. Our commitments to Susie include the round-the-world shipment of the race equipment and materials, as well as providing assistance with any contingencies that may arise during the race.
For DHL, partnering with Susie was an easy decision. As a pioneering yachtswoman and the race’s youngest female competitor, Susie’s spirit is an inspiration to both DHL employees and customers. Like DHL, she has a passionate work ethic, a desire to continuously conquer new challenges, and is committed to achieving excellence in any circumstances.
As Susie undertakes her courageous global adventure, we hope she is bolstered by the thought that our 90,000 employees around the world are behind her, and wishing her a successful journey that culminates in a memorable finish in 2019.
