Hi There,

The logistics and supply chain management of the MotoGP event, particularly in the context of the Mandalika circuit in Indonesia, is an intricate and complex process. The orchestration of a successful event requires a well-coordinated and efficient supply chain model, where every piece of equipment, from the smallest spare part to the motorcycles themselves, needs to be transported across international borders, and sometimes continents, in a timely manner.

The choice of the Mandalika circuit as a venue for the MotoGP event was more than just about showcasing the beauty and culture of Indonesia. The strategic location of Mandalika, with its proximity to the Lombok International Airport and the availability of deep-water ports in the region, provides an excellent logistic advantage for the transport of MotoGP equipment.

The supply chain model of MotoGP is akin to a global jigsaw puzzle, where the pieces are continually moving across the globe. The motorcycles, spare parts, and other equipment are packed into freight containers, which are then transported across the globe to the event venues. The transportation process involves a combination of air, sea, and land transport.

The process starts with the collection of equipment from the team bases, which are located in different parts of the world. The equipment is then transported to a central hub, where it is sorted and packed into freight containers. These containers are then transported by air or sea to the country where the event is taking place.

Customs clearance is a crucial part of the MotoGP supply chain model. The MotoGP logistics team works closely with local customs authorities to ensure that the equipment is cleared quickly and efficiently. This process involves a thorough documentation check, physical inspection of the cargo, and payment of duties and taxes whereby applicable.

For the Mandalika event, the Indonesian Customs and Excise Department played a crucial role in ensuring a smooth customs clearance process. The department cooperated closely with the event organizers, providing guidance and support throughout the process.

On recent Mandalika motoGP event a total of 111 tons of logistics cargo for riders at the Mandalika Circuit MotoGP event on October 13-15, 2023, arrived at Lombok International Airport, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB).

“This logistics is transported by a Nippon Cargo Airlines Boeing 747-800F flight number KZ6231,” said Lombok Airport General Manager Rahmat Adil Indrawan in Praya, quoted by ANTARA, Tuesday, October 3.

After Nippon Cargo Airlines, there will be three more flights to the MotoGP 2023 logistics carrier from Narita to Lombok served by Atlas Air Boeing 747-400F and Nippon Cargo Airlines Boeing 747-800F.

Once the event is over, the process is reversed. The equipment is packed into freight containers, which are then transported back to the team bases or to the next event venue. The customs clearance process is repeated in the country of return or the next host country.

The supply chain model of MotoGP is a complex and well-coordinated process, involving multiple stakeholders and moving parts. The successful mobilization of a MotoGP event, such as the one at Mandalika, requires a strategic choice of venue, efficient transport logistics, and smooth customs clearance processes. The Mandalika event serves as a testament to the effectiveness of this model, providing valuable insights for future events in different countries.
