How Is Speedy Freight Supporting The Return Of Events & Festivals?

As the weather brightens and the days lengthen, you could be forgiven for turning your thoughts towards summer festivals! In previous years, the presence of large music festivals like Reading, Leeds, Latitude, and of course Glastonbury marked various months of the UK’s summer calendar. Over the years, Speedy Freight has worked closely with many festival organisers, providing dedicated festival and events logistics services to ensure that these large-scale music events could continue without a hitch. From moving large stage sets to music equipment to food stalls and medical centres, Speedy Freight has had decades of experience in providing courier services for some of the music scene’s biggest events in the UK.


Of course, it’s no surprise that the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 meant that many of these landmark events could not go ahead as planned. This coming summer seems set to mark the return of some of the UK’s best-loved festivals, and the need for festival couriers is set to return. Speedy Freight provides expert festival and events courier services for the UK’s music and events scene – read on to learn how we do it!
