Moving Promotional Items for the 2024 Premier League Darts: A Case Study

Moving Promotional Items for the 2024 Premier League Darts: A Case Study
The timely and safe transportation of promotional items can make all the difference, particularly when it comes to high-value one-off designs for time-sensitive events. This case study delves into the partnership between Speedy Freight Tonbridge and our client in the prop making industry who was tasked with creating large promotional darts for the 2024 Premier League Darts. We explore the intricate logistics involved in transporting three large fibreglass darts from the client's workshop in Kent to Cardiff, highlighting Speedy Freight's commitment to reliability, efficiency, and professionalism. 


The Client 


Our client is a leading specialist prop maker, offering a range of prop design and crafting services, including sculpting, moulding, casting, and painting. With a diverse clientele across all sectors, including the events, marketing, hospitality industries, they craft artistic and promotional materials tailored to their clients' very specific needs. 


The Consignment 


The consignment consisted of transporting three large and heavy fibreglass darts for our client, commissioned for promotional purposes by Premier League Darts.  

Having previously utilised our services for a similar one-off delivery, which involved transporting a giant arrow to a supermarket chain's headquarters in London, our client entrusted us with this unique consignment and our Speedy Freight Tonbridge team gladly welcomed the challenge once again.  


The Solution 


Understanding the unique requirements of the consignment, including its size, weight, and fragility, we selected a suitable vehicle for the job—a 26-tonne Flatbed equipped with a Hiab crane to facilitate the loading, unloading, and transportation of the consignment. 

Given the time-sensitive nature of the consignment and its fragility, our team meticulously planned the transportation process. With our dedicated same day delivery service, we were able to quickly and efficiently move this consignment of irregular size and weight, with our driver successfully moving the consignment from Kent to Cardiff and helping unload and move the three darts on a particularly cold winter’s morning.  

Our dedicated service ensured the consignment's safety, while our same day courier service ensured it was delivered promptly ahead of the event. Thanks to our round-the-clock availability, delivering in the early hours of the morning was no challenge for our team. 


The Result  


Thanks to our dedicated efforts and strategic planning, the darts were safely and swiftly transported to their destination at the Utilita Arena Cardiff. and could be seen on ITV News’ coverage of Premier League Darts. 

Our client has expressed profound gratitude for the exceptional service that was once provided by our Tonbridge team, highlighting their friendliness, efficiency, professionalism, and unwavering support, especially during the challenging task of transporting and placing the darts in multiple locations during the early hours of a cold January morning. 

In the words of our client, "This isn’t the first time I have used Speedy Freight, and it definitely won’t be the last. I highly recommend them to anyone requiring a flexible, efficient, professional transport service."
