Touring Logistics Services

Shockwave Cargo

Elizabeth, NJ

Shocker: good touring execution is all about logistics. Unfortunately, the bill for shipping often is in line with its importance - huge. That's why so many tour managers have recommended to Eventric freight forwarder/broker Shockwave Cargo. Not only do they make sure that your gear gets anywhere in the world on time but they treat your money like their own (and these guys are frugal).

They work hard to understand your requirements and make arrangements with the best cargo providers on land, air, or sea, making sure your gear gets there safely and on time. Staffed by a team of experts on both North American coasts and in London, Shockwave staff has decades of logistics experience and they have pretty much seen it all. You get one-on-one 24x7 service from a dedicated account manager - no hand-offs.

Who have they worked with? Their client list is here but here are a few names:

Alkaline Trio | Anthrax | Metallica | Rush | John Mellencamp | Mark Anthony | James Taylor | Dwight Yoakam | Rent

How Shockwave Gets the Lowest Price

Shockwave negotiates hard on your behalf and are not afraid to switch providers to get the best price. They are open with regard to what you are getting and what you pay for. This philosophy combined with their commitment to low overhead and using information technology gives them a leg up on their competition - providing natural substantial savings.

I spoke with Jon Nevins of Shockwave the other day and he related a story for me about how he just saved a prominent band over $100K on air freight for a European leg they were about to embark upon. It's crazy to be economizing on things like craft services when there are big whales like freight out there.

So here's another way to save - Shockwave is offering special pricing for Master Tour users. Yep, get your best rate and they will knock off 10% for your first time using Shockwave.

So what can they handle? Moving mountains of gear and people over land, sea, or air. You need storage? They have it too - in house.
