Film, TV & Media Logistics

Choose an experienced shipping star to play your logistics leading role

Sports, festivals & events
No matter where they take place, today’s major events are seen and heard by an audience numbering in the millions, thanks to global television coverage—often live. The success of that coverage hinges on a wealth of sophisticated and sensitive technology: miles of cabling, satellite dishes, broadcasting equipment, top-of-the-line video cameras, complete mobile studios, and advanced hardware and software. One faulty link in the chain, and the screen goes blank—so you need a specialized logistics company that you can trust to move all that film, television and media equipment to the right place at the right time in perfect condition—every single time.
