DHL has been responsible for the transport and logistics solutions related to the shooting and production of the 007 James Bond films for more than 14 years now. It all started in 2006 when Daniel Craig-starrer Casino Royale was released. Once again, DHL is the official logistics partner for the 25th James Bond film No Time To Die which is set to release on 2nd April 2020. DHL transported everything around the globe via air, ocean, and road freight with precision timing to keep to the filming schedule.
“Timeliness and precision are crucial for blockbuster productions of this magnitude. Thanks to our international network and the well-orchestrated processes carried out by our respective air, ocean, and road freight teams, DHL is positioned to fulfil those requirements. We are proud to have supported the famous Secret Service agent on his mission to save the world for the fifth time.”~ Frank Appel, CEO, Deutsche Post DHL Group
A film production needs a great deal of hard work and preparation. Everything and everybody needs to be in the right spot at the right time to save time and resources, which suggests arranging timely transportation for all actors as well as crew participants alongside props and all-important film production equipment.
DHL as the logistics partner took care that both filming units always had the right equipment available at the right time and place. The film equipment was moved between the locations Norway, Jamaica, Italy, and all over the UK.
“We are essentially a one-stop-shop for anything a film project needs, whether by road, air, or sea, we are focused on keeping production moving. For urgent or last-minute shipments we also use our Express network. To keep pace with the strict and ever-changing international regulations for cargo, we have to stay ahead of the curve and really put our logistics expertise to work. It has been a great opportunity to once again show what we can deliver. We care deeply about the material entrusted to,” says John Meller, Project Lead No Time To Die Logistics at DHL.
