GEFCO manages global specialised projects for Daktronics

04 December 2017

The GEFCO Freight Forwarding team in the UK have worked in partnership with Daktronics for over 18 years, delivering their high value, innovative screens designed to maximise the spectator experience for large scale events and retail.

GEFCO have been trusted by Daktronics to project manage global specialised projects to both major shopping malls such as Westfield and Stratford Park, and national stadiums within the UK including Millennium, Twickenham, Wembley as well as the screens created for the London 2012 Olympics.

With our trusted history, Daktronics approached GEFCO to transport the new ‘intelligent’ screens for Piccadilly Circus from their manufacturing plant in USA; stored within GEFCO Forwarding facilities; and delivered, as required, over a period of three months, via timed deliveries to the Piccadilly circus site for installation.

The screens worth over £1.5M required extensive care throughout the process, with GEFCO developing solutions for:

  • stabilised packaging;
  • dedicated vehicles for transportation;
  • containerisation via sea;
  • value added services for unpacking and devanning;
  • secure and compliant storage facilities;
  • site inspections for the Daktronics team and full transparency of the supply chain

GEFCO Forwarding UK are proud to work in partnership with Daktronics on this iconic project for UK tourism.
