Learn how Speedy Freight can provide film courier support for one of the most exciting and fast-paced industries in the UK.


What is a film courier?

If you’re new to the industry, you may be uncertain exactly what remit a film courier covers. Film couriers, essentially, are able to provide logistics for all aspects of motion pictures, movie production, television production and more. This can include anything from the transportation of life-size movie sets, sometimes encompassing whole houses or apartments, to the provision of on-set catering for the talent. With a remit as diverse as this, it’s probably no surprise that your dedicated film courier must be adaptable and able to provide varied logistics!


Finding the best film courier for you

Flexibility and adaptability is just the start of your requirements for a film courier. On a film set, time is money – and it’s imperative that you don’t face any unexpected delays in beginning the day’s work. Often, unexpected hiccups can arise which require last-minute emergency courier support for film sets – whether it’s a missing item crucial to a scene, urgent documents or even a costume, which can delay filming at a crucial juncture. When everything rests on your schedule, you can’t afford to take risks with it.

Finding a film courier means finding a reliable, flexible logistics service that can travel nationally as well as internationally when needed. Your film courier must be able to deploy everything from small vans for minor items to trucks capable of transporting an entire set for a scene. Because a film set isn’t 9-5 work, your trusted express film courier needs to be on-call 24/7, 365 – able to pick up a job at a moment’s notice. Finally, it’s key that a film courier is trustworthy. You wouldn’t risk your production’s success by choosing a courier with a poor reputation or that was just starting out – so don’t take the chance. Choose Speedy Freight as your film courier, and ensure prompt delivery; on time, every time.
