GAC speeds up Ferrari operations in India
GAC chose logistics of a slightly faster tempo last month when the company was appointed to handle the logistics of Delhi’s Formula One motor race on the 30th October.
As part of the contract, GAC India handled the transportation and setting up the F1 Ferrari replica over a 54-day period packed with promotional events leading up to the F1 race.
GAC provided a comprehensive package of event logistics services from car handling, transportation between event sites, storage, and obtaining the necessary permits from the authorities.
GAC also deployed security staff around the clock to protect the high performance vehicle entrusted to them, and specialist cleaners to maintain its race-ready shine.
A team of 18 workers was assigned for the loading and unloading of the car. To ensure fast and seamless operations, tailor-made ramps were made to get it onto a specially padded truck.
“We were thrilled and proud to be involved in the debut Formula One event in India and its attendant promotional events,” said Sunil Kapoor, GAC India’s regional manager - north. “Providing event logistics for such high profile activity was a major challenge, but one which we met successfully.”
Ferrari India and the Jaypee Group have since approached GAC India to provide support for their upcoming shows.
