How does the loading at an assigned warehouse work?

Once the team loaded and lashed everything, Creventic’s transport partner will take care of all custom formalities and the shipment to the USA, including grounding at the paddock of Circuit of the Americas.

Directly after the event, teams can load their containers and we will arrange the sea freight back including customs formalities.
