North West Province – Currently in its 15th year, the FNB Magalies Monster MTB Classic proudly relies on the services of its logistics partner, DHL to ensure the smooth activation and running of the North West Province’s most revered MTB race.

“We are excited to celebrate the FNB Magalies Monster MTB Classic’s 15th anniversary in 2017,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports.  “The Magalies Monster has grown from strength to strength.  This would not have been possible without the support of our valued sponsors and partners.  DHL has been the event’s logistics partner for the past three years.  Their expertise and professional approach to business has helped establish the Magalies Monster as one of the ‘must do’ events in the North West Province.  We value their support and look forward to hosting yet another memorable event on Saturday, 03 June 2017, the FNB Magalies Monster MTB Classic and on Sunday, 04 June 2017, the FNB Platinum Trail Run.”

DHL is the global market leader of the international express and logistics industry,” says Megan Collinicos, Head of Marketing, DHL Sub-Saharan Africa.  “Our DHL family of divisions offer an unrivalled portfolio of logistics services ranging from national and international parcel delivery, e-commerce shipping and fulfilment solutions, international express, road, air and ocean transport to industrial supply chain management.  As the official logistics partner of the FNB Wines2Whales MTB Events, we were excited to extend our support of the MTB realm by also partnering with the FNB Magalies Monster MTB Classic and the BUCO Origin Of Trails.  DHL provides the critical logistics services to ensure that the event runs smoothly.  Our slogan at DHL Express is ‘Excellence, Simply Delivered’. We want every interaction with our brand to demonstrate this – creating ease and convenience for all users.”
