SINGAPORE – US – UK – Global freight and logistics provider Agility has signed a partnership agreement with Shell to ship vehicles and offer technical advice to teams of university students competing in the annual Shell Eco – marathon and Drivers World Championship events.

Agility Fairs & Events will provide the teams with technical advice required to safely pack their vehicles and advise them on customs procedures and requirements. Agility will ship the vehicles and related equipment and will manage receipt, handling and final delivery to the Changi venue in Singapore, to Detroit, and to the Olympic Park venue in London.
