THE MOST IMPORTANT, AND MOST FORGOTTEN, ASPECT OF MUSEUM EXHIBIT TRANSPORTATION

Wednesday July 9, 2014

When it comes to complex challenges in moving museum-quality exhibits from one venue to another, the aspect least thought about is storage. However, storage is a major concern to the museums, exhibit manufacturers and companies that manage the touring of these high-grade exhibits.

In working with these companies and museums, I find storage to be in limited supply and usually a cost that significantly affects the bottom line. Planes Specialized Logistics is one such company which offers competitive solutions to this problem. Planes Specialized Logistics has hundreds of warehouse locations not only in the U.S. and Canada, but globally – in 143 countries, to be exact.

Having storage available with quick turn around on delivery services is not often recognized on the surface or at the start of a project, but it’s highly visible when it’s time to deliver a museum exhibit to a venue. Planes Specialized Logistics provides not only 46+ million square feet of warehousing globally and 7+ million square feet of climate controlled space in which to hold precious cargo, but white glove delivery services for labor-intensive, high-value goods that require special care and attention, such as museum exhibit fixtures, art, installations, sculptures, and more.

Planes provides a cost-competitive way for you to handle the delivery of valuable museum exhibit items to their destinations anywhere in the world. We are able to do this by working with the most highly trained crews and using the best in specialty equipment. Our temperature controlled vans and trucks will ensure consistent temperatures from pickup to delivery, and our dedicated, customer service-oriented shippers and handlers will keep your precious goods safe and sound.
