DHL Express Ireland Become Munster’s Official Logistics Partner
22nd September 2021 By The Editor
DHL Express Ireland and Munster Rugby are proud to announce the start of a new partnership ahead of the 2021/22 season.
The new agreement will see DHL continue its longstanding history and involvement with the game of rugby, which has delivered partnerships with the IRFU, Harlequins in England and the DHL Stormers in South Africa.
DHL is also well experienced in delivering the tailored solutions required of the sport through their partnerships with major global organisations including the British and Irish Lions Tour, World Rugby Sevens Series and Rugby World Cup 2015 and 2019 respectively.
“DHL has been a longstanding supporter of Irish rugby,” says Bernard McCarthy, Managing Director DHL Express Ireland.
“I’m delighted that we’ve signed a three year deal to become the Official Logistics Partner of Munster Rugby. At DHL Express we have a significant operational presence and customer relationships across the Munster region, so partnering with Munster Rugby is very exciting and makes a lot of sense.”
Bernard McCarthy continued: “We would like to extend our best wishes to Johann Van Graan and his team as they embark on the 2021/22 United Rugby Championship and Heineken Champions Cup season.”
Munster Rugby Chief Executive Ian Flanagan added: “We are delighted to welcome DHL to our family of partners of Munster Rugby.
“DHL are a global market leader in the logistics industry with a very strong presence throughout Munster and Ireland so are the perfect fit as our new Official Logistics Partner.
“We are really looking forward to working with DHL and to building a very strong partnership together in the coming years.”
As ‘The Team Behind The Team’, DHL will provide bespoke solutions in their role of Official Logistics Partner. The sport aligns with many of DHL’s values, with passion, teamwork and a can-do attitude representing the essential requirements for delivering excellence both on and off the pitch.
Both DHL and Munster Rugby believe in teamwork over the individual, a belief which is set to flourish ahead of and during the new season. This new partnership celebrates DHL’s continuing support of rugby in Ireland and will further extend the brand’s reach in the region whilst delivering for one of the country’s most iconic clubs.
