Kuehne+Nagel is the official logistics partner for SailGP for the next three seasons until the end of 2024.

The logistics firm will work with SailGP to support the global logistics of its multi-continent race calendar using sustainable transport methods including alternative fuels.

In addition, Kuehne+Nagel will give the league full visibility on all shipping-related emissions through its Seaexplorer platform.

The tool will enable SailGP to select more efficient transport routes for future seasons that emit substantially less carbon.

For the shipping emissions that can’t be removed or reduced, Kuehne+Nagel will offset the remaining carbon footprint via verified gold standard offsets. Combined, the measures will ensure a 100% CO2 neutral supply chain.
