BECAUSE CARGO NEEDS PASSPORTS TOO.
An ATA Carnet is an international customs document that functions like a passport for cargo. We generate them for clients because they help avoid unwanted costs like import bonds and duties.
As a long-standing member of the U.S. Council of International Business (USCIB), we carry the distinct honor of being one of the select few freight forwarders with the authority to generate ATA Carnets directly in-house.
CUSTOMIZED FREIGHT FORWARDING
DELIVERING YOUR VISION HERE, THERE & EVERYWHERE.
All our freight services are headed by dedicated professionals with years of experience and are backed by over 40 years of shared knowledge. They’ll work directly with you to create the optimal freight forwarding plan, utilizing everything from air and ocean freight to trucking, multimodal and same day courier.
Because big ideas only matter if the cargo arrives on time.
GETTING YOU READY FOR TAKEOFF
We don’t just work with major airports around the world, we have offices there. That’s especially impressive when you realize it includes time-critical same-day shipments, multi-plane air charters, and everything in between.
For both domestic and international shipments, our experts help mitigate the risks of air cargo transportation and chart the most ideal route possible. With years of experience handling high-value, technical show equipment, we have mastered the tricks of the trade to ensure your gear arrives intact and on time.
WHERE YOUR VISION MEETS THE ROAD.
From a single truck to an entire fleet, from North America to far corners of the world. No matter what ground your team needs to cover, we have the experience and trucking resources to get it there.
Our Live Event Trucking Team specializes in the delivery of time-sensitive, fragile, and complex cargo anywhere in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. With trusted partners around the world, we can procure and supervise your local trucking globally, ensuring it is well taken care of from door to door. Best of all, it’s completely turnkey to you.
SOMETIMES THE BEST WAY TO SHIP OVERSEAS IS OVER SEAS.
For many transfers, carefully packing a container and shipping dock to dock offers greater control. When time permits and dimensions are large, ocean freight forwarding is the reliable, cost-effective way to go.
Fortunately, Rock-It Global has the advantage of having a “go to” in-house ocean team at our NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) subsidiary, Cargo Live Worldwide Logistics, providing you competitive rates and dedicated service. These highly seasoned agents listen to what you need and deliver your solution.
SHIPPING BY LAND, SEA OR AIR. OR A LITTLE OF EACH.
This is the ultimate method of customized shipping, which is why it’s the cornerstone of our service offerings.
Using a custom blend of the most effective and efficient methods of transport, our expert agents will analyze and manage your shipping needs to ensure your cargo arrives when and where it needs to. It’s how we bring method to any client’s madness.
SAME DAY SHIPPING
WHEN TOMORROW ISN’T FAST ENOUGH
Sometimes the unexpected happens and a key piece of gear is needed for a repair or your cargo must suddenly be somewhere within 24 hours. This kind of flexibility on demand is how we got our start.
And it’s why we’re still the masters at making the impossible possible. So, whether you need something ASAP, or you have a high-value, one-of-a-kind item that needs constant supervision, our Courier and Same Day services will get that cargo to its destination in the fastest, safest way possible.
AIR CARGO CHARTER
WHY NOT JUST BOOK THE WHOLE PLANE?
Booking a charter plane for your cargo, handled by experts who care, shortens the distance from your point a to b and gives you a sense of ease. Our experts know all aspects of air cargo to make sure you get the perfect aircraft charter for your precious cargo.
PASSENGER AIR CHARTER
FLY FIRST CLASS, ON YOUR TERMS
We handle precious cargo of all kinds, including people. By being able to tap into every private plane that flies today, our global network makes it easy to book and schedule the right aircraft. Whether you have six people or 600, our charter agents will track down the perfect plane for your crew, providing both an economic and comfortable advantage.
REACH MORE COUNTRIES WITH LESS WORRIES
Sometimes the trick is getting you and your cargo into a country. Sometimes the trick is getting it out. Either way, our in-house customs brokerage team will provide you with a cost-effective, time-efficient plan. It’s a one-stop solution designed to prevent unexpected stops.
RISK MITIGATION AND INSURANCE
ALL CARGO IS PRECIOUS. WE CAN HELP YOU PROTECT IT.
Through handling precious cargo shipments all over the world, we understand that transportation of high valued items inevitably involves risk. Adequate insurance for your freight is a must, and we can help advise you on risk mitigation strategies to ensure your shipments are protected. We have relationships with the most respected insurers in the world and can bring that world-class experience straight to you.
PACKING & CRATING
WE TAKE PRIDE IN PACKING
When it comes to executing a live event, your cargo is your most valuable asset. We have crating experts (yes, that’s a thing) who will collaborate with you to create custom solutions for your needs and your cargo. Whether it’s an entire stage show or ancient dinosaur bones, nothing matters more than getting it there on time and intact.
WAREHOUSING & STORAGE
TAKING THE SHOW OFF THE ROAD

LOGISTICS & TOUR PLANNING
THE PERFECT APPROACH FOR A PERFECT LANDING

We work with you to come up with the perfect plan A and B and C. When the inevitable change or delay happens, we are prepared to pivot, as are you. We live by the words of David Charles Bernstein, Rock-it Cargo Pioneer, “The approach determines the landing.”
