Gumball 3000 and Delivered on Time have recently signed a partnership, which sees D.O.T become “The official vehicle movement partner to the Gumball 3000 Rally”. The deal, which will run for three years will see D.O.T providing logistics support to the Rally on an annual basis as well as providing on going logistics services as required by Gumball 3000 and its client base.
D.O.T specialises in several niche markets, but it is strongest in motorsport and car transportation. With its involvement with Formula One and other international motorsport series dating back to the company’s inception in 2005, the company has a wealth of experience in handling the logistics movements of high value race cars as well as sports and luxury cars for high net worth individuals.
The company will offer car transportation services to all of the entries to this year’s Gumball 3000 Rally, enabling cars to be positioned to Stockholm for the start of the rally, between continents, and repatriated once the final party is over in Las Vegas. This will be achieved using a mix of road, sea and airfreight movements dependent on individual requirements.
D.O.T will be responsible for the chartering of freight aircraft to transport all the cars between Amsterdam and Reno, as well as handling all temporary customs paperwork for the export from Europe and temporary import into Reno, Nevada.
A team of highly experienced car transportation and customs experts have been assigned to the project to ensure every detail is covered for what is a highly resource intensive logistics project.
Gumball 3000 was created in 1999 by ex-racing driver, designer and British entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper; and was born from Cooper's vision to combine cars, music, fashion and entertainment to create a pop culture lifestyle brand of the future.
