Events logistics operator Rock-It Global has opened a dedicated 15,000sq ft facility at London Heathrow Airport. It offers 13,314 cu ft of caged secure storage space, as well as rack space for 300 pallet positions for long-term storage and tour merchandise.
The forwarder has also invested in an X-ray machine for onsite screening and installed an Explosive Trace Detector machine for cargo too dense to X-ray, avoiding the need to rely on a third-party off-site provider.
It says that huge volumes of e-commerce cargo, reduced scheduled flights and staff shortages at handlers and hauliers has caused screening bottlenecks at Heathrow.
Rock-It Global provides logistics and freight forwarding services for live entertainment, music touring, fine arts, sports and broadcasting, corporate events, film and television, power projects, and humanitarian relief.
