It's all about

your event

Chaucer Event Logistics is a world leader in speciality freight forwarding and logistics for the Entertainment & Events Industry. With coverage in over 150 countries world-wide, Chaucer is able to handle all your international, time sensitive, fragile and complicated freight moves at a moment's notice.

On many occasions we act as Head of Department for Shipping, which enables the Event Co-ordinator, Tour or Production Manager to make one call after which we then make all the necessary arrangements for collection and delivery of all equipment, sets, sound stages and back-room kit along with all crew and team personal items.

It's too easy to stay with what you know, try Chaucer and see how we can make the difference
