In the dynamic world of music touring, where every detail counts, Rock-it Cargo brings the beat to your freight without skipping a single note.
Dive into the rhythm of a recent tour that shook the industry’s perception of logistical value and excellence.
It all started when the tour manager for indie Brit-pop band Pulp called Rock-it for a quote. Pulp was looking to transport gear for a tour that would start in Mexico City, go across South America and then end in Hong Kong. After learning about the expertise and value that Rock-it offered, tour management decided to place their trust in Rock-it to handle these logistics.
Rock-it ended up assisting Pulp with five shows (Mexico City, Montevideo, Buenos Aires, Santiago and Hong Kong), overseeing the transport of gear to these locations.
Rock-it didn’t simply handle the freight and logistics securely for Pulp – there was a whole orchestra of efficiencies that resulted in cost savings for the band. According to the tour-management team, Rock-it’s expertise was one of the factors that helped make this a profit-generating tour. That deserves a bow!
Rock-it stands ahead of its peers both in terms of experience and global scale, with unmatched buying power and a network of company-owned offices all around the world. At all of Rock-it’s global locations, teams are well-versed in the exact requirements needed for international touring for bands, promoters and festivals. Where a Rock-it-owned office was handling cargo, there were team members on-site to meet with production and oversee both load-in and load-out. In Hong Kong, where Rock-it did not have an on-the-ground office, the team enlisted the help of a trusted agent — guaranteeing the Rock-it touch was unmistakable.
For the grand finale, and throughout the entire tour, Rock-it seamlessly ensured all customs were cleared, as well as all gear transported safely and on-time from one show to the next.
At the conclusion of the tour, Rock-it shipped all the gear back to London, so it could be ready for the band’s next adventure.
Rock-it Global isn’t just a freight-forwarding and logistics option for bands and international music tours. It’s a true mainstay for cost-effective, problem-solving logistical solutions across town…or across the globe.
