How Can Cargo Signal Improve the Arts and Entertainment Industry?

Untitled design (3)-Aug-31-2023-05-37-55-5552-PMArts and entertainment are integral parts of our lives, adding meaning, value, and excitement. But that can’t continue unless that art is delivered safe and sound and the equipment needed to make and convey our entertainment are delivered in a timely fashion. If these things aren’t adequately protected in transit, there could be severe consequences.

Here are just a few common challenges the arts and entertainment industry faces without real-time visibility of product on the move:  

  • High costs of hiring stewards to oversee and accompany artwork in transit 
  • Theft or damage of high-value equipment and technology 
  • Irreparable damage to highly-respected artwork or delicate museum installations 
  • Inability to update museums, art buyers, or production studios on the location and condition of their shipments 
  • Causing slowdowns in production schedules or special museum exhibits due to delayed cargo 

Protect High-Value (or Priceless) Shipments 

Moving highly desirable artwork, technology, and equipment from place to place leaves it vulnerable to theft or damage. Cargo Signal’s Security Alerts can prevent that from happening. If your freight falls vulnerable to theft, Cargo Signal will sound the alarm and our Command Center will get authorities on the scene immediately. And what about potential damage to your shipment?

Moisture build-up, light exposure, extreme temperatures, and shock/tilt can spell disaster for many works of art or expensive electronics. Cargo Signal will automatically let you know the moment your shipment becomes vulnerable. If it does, Command Center will intervene to keep your shipment in pristine condition. 

Maintain Timely Delivery of Goods  

Those in the arts and entertainment industry often work under tight deadlines. If shipments aren’t delivered on time, a film may have to delay production or a museum exhibit or gallery event may be postponed, resulting in financial losses that could be passed on to you. With Cargo Signal, you’ll be able to track the location of your shipment–whether it’s moving in close proximity, or from afar by land, air, or sea–in real time.

Improve Customer Service 

Art purveyors and entertainment enthusiasts have high expectations for service. Many customers anxious to receive their shipment may ask for regular updates regarding its location and security. With Cargo Signal’s real-time information at your fingertips, you can provide your chosen stakeholders with up-to-the-minute detailed information about a shipment’s location, security, and condition, so your clients can feel like their shipment is in good hands from the point of origin to the final destination.
