London – Fast Live Productions today announced their partnership with GAC as official logistics partner to Fast & Furious Live – the global arena tour where fans can experience the adrenaline-fuelled thrills of the blockbuster film franchise built on speed.
GAC has been a critical partner since the early stages of production, providing round-the-clock support delivering bespoke show cars and parts to the UK from all over the world. Among the items GAC is handling is the iconic Fast & Furious Dodge Charger which was taken to a secret GAC location upon arrival in the UK.
GAC provides a wide range of integrated shipping, logistics and marine services, with a reach that spans the globe. These comprehensive services and worldwide scope will continue to be crucial when Fast & Furious Live embarks on its global tour, starting in London, January 2018.
“GAC are already an important extension of our team, just as Fast & Furious Live is an exciting extension of the Fast & Furious franchise,” said James Cooke-Priest, CEO, Fast Live Productions. “The show can’t go on without their logistics expertise, and we wouldn’t entrust our multi-million-pound cargo to anyone else.”
The scale of the logistics task is as breath-taking as the spectacular live-arena action show itself, with thousands of tons of freight circling the globe, all controlled and moved by GAC; truly a critical part of this massive operation.
“We’re thrilled to be involved with Fast & Furious Live,” said Herman Jorgensen, Managing Director, GAC UK. “Our appointment as Official Logistics Partner for this supercharged, high profile tour perfectly showcases our talent for time-critical, precise movement of extremely valuable cargo”.
The partnership has already proved invaluable with the delivery of several key star cars from the show which took part in the filming of the Fast & Furious Live television commercial, and the global press launch that took place on 21 September.
Previewed to the world last month, the adrenaline-fueled, two-hour Fast & Furious Live show is set to be the most spectacular live arena production ever produced, featuring precision performance driving and newly created physics-defying stunts. Using favourite cars and locations that criss-cross the globe along with key scenes from the film series – created via state-of-the-art 3D projection mapping – fans will be transported straight into this immersive extension of the Fast & Furious movies.
