Rocking a Global Music Tour: A Case Study in Logistical Excellence

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. 

The Call and Confirmation 

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.

Unlocking True Value for Music Tours 

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! 

A Harmony of Strengths 

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. 

The Grand Finale 

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. 

The Takeaway: Logistical Showmanship and Unmatched Value 

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.
