In-house services for world tours
MTAB continues to expand its Tour Service business area by recruiting Jonas Bengtsson as a project manager specialising in air and ocean freight. Jonas joins MTAB from Sound Moves (UK) in London, one of the world’s leading companies in entertainment industry freight solutions, where he worked with major international artists and their tours.
Jonas has been Sound Moves’ project manager for the Scandinavian market, and has managed ocean and air transportation for international tours for The Cullberg Ballet, The Knife, The Hives, Kent, The Royal Dramatic Theatre and others.
At MTAB Jonas will be developing transportation services for customers embarking on international tours. This personal link with Sound Moves allows MTAB to offer the highest standard of worldwide freight and handling services for Nordic artists and event companies. Jonas will be based at MTAB’s head office in Bromma, with the entire Nordic region as his workplace.
The air and ocean freight services MTAB provides for events and tours include a number of value-added services, such as ATA Carnet, customs clearance, security screening, secure warehousing and consultanc “Quality in all areas was the motto for my work at Sound Moves and I’m delighted to join a company that has the same aspirations and likewise many years’ experience of tour logistics,” says Jonas.
“The service we provide always involves personally supervising the packing of tour equipment. We weigh, measure, load and shrink wrap the pallets, and check that the equipment is properly secured before its onward journey by air or sea.
“Our partners mirror this painstaking process when they receive the equipment. And we take exactly the same approach to quality for a small band as we do for an international artist with several thousand tonnes of equipment. Everything must be checked down to the smallest detail, as the equipment we are dealing with is valua
ble and very fragile.”
