Two days before Christmas, when everything was shutting down for the holiday, I learned there were scheduling issues with our current shipping plan. I called Rock-it Cargo in a panic and Nancy worked some magic to line up trucking for us. THANK YOU so very much for your calm, helpful, understanding of my urgency at that time.

?[Rock It] provided the brokerage service for the Boeing 767 air charter as well as organized door to door trucking from to/from the airports. They also provided onsite crews to pack the equipment for the flight and oversee all the paperwork. Their charter team took a pretty daunting task and made it totally manageable so that I could focus on other aspects of the production. But that was true every step of the way, so I guess I wasn?t surprised!?
