Solutions for the Entertainment Industry

To the general public the entertainment business is synonymous with glamour, but anyone who works in this industry understands that the difference between the success and failure of a given project can often depend on something as unglamorous as logistics.

That is because the entertainment business is highly reliant on logistics when it comes to the handling and movement of things like film prints, tapes, equipment and print materials. If these critical items are not delivered when and where they are needed, the consequences can range from severe to catastrophic.

That is why so many decision-makers at film studios, television networks, production and editing houses and publishing companies turn to Axis Global Logistics for their logistics services. These executives choose Axis because they know they will benefit from a single-source supply chain solution that will optimize costs and efficiency and offer visibility and control—a solution built on global capabilities, industry-leading technology, the highest possible degree of personal service and, perhaps most importantly, years of experience serving the entertainment industry.
