TAS Racing was delighted to welcome Eddie Stobart on-board as the team’s logistics partner for 2017 in a deal secured earlier this year; and it’s a partnership that has been a great success to date for our Tyco BMW Racing Team.
“Eddie Stobart’s support this season, assisting our British Superbike and International Road Racing team’s logistics has been invaluable and an enjoyable experience for all involved so far,” said Tyco BMW team manager Philip Neill.
The Logistics behind the Bikes
Eddie Stobart is one of the UK’s leading logistics businesses working across the full supply chain in the UK and Europe, delivering innovative solutions and service excellence to a diverse range of customers in the Retail, Consumer, Manufacturing, Industrial & Bulk (MIB) and E-Commerce sectors.
Its operations span the full end-to-end supply chain via road, rail, container and contract logistics, as well as warehousing (including co-packing and re-work). On an average day, around 2,500 vehicles are on the road, servicing different customers through a unique ‘shared-user’ model.
As well as its famous trucks, Eddie Stobart runs six trains a day, six days a week to all ends of the country from Daventry and its rail terminal at Widnes. Eddie Stobart has always retained a deep involvement in motorsport through its strong connection to the F1 logistics sector, which is growing year-on-year.
In early 2017, Eddie Stobart formed a support partnership with TAS Racing and Tyco BMW, providing logistics support for the 2017 British Superbike Championship and International Road Races. This involved Eddie Stobart transporting the Tyco BMW by TAS Racing Superbike team equipment to venues across the UK, Ireland and the Isle of Man. As part of this partnership they introduced two new DAF units to their fleet.
Commenting on the partnership, David Simpson, Special Operations Director, said: “We have really enjoyed working with the Tyco BMW by TAS Racing team during the 2017 BSB and international road races, particularly the TT. The industry offers my unique ‘Special Operations’ team of multi-skilled drivers and staff, the kind of diverse and interesting work they enjoy and excel at.”
