Since Casino Royale (2006), DHL’s logistics experts have been responsible for the transport and logistics solutions related to the filming and production of the James Bond films. For No Time To Die (2021), DHL transported carefully inventoried filming equipment, props, vehicles and costumes, ensuring that each dispatched item was delivered to the right location, at the right time.
Frank Appel, CEO Deutsche Post DHL Group, notes, “Timeliness and precision are crucial for blockbuster productions of this magnitude. Thanks to our international network and the well-orchestrated processes carried out by our respective air, ocean, and road freight teams, DHL is positioned to fulfil those requirements and accomplish such an extraordinary project. We are proud to have supported the James Bond films for the fifth time.”
DHL, as the Logistics Partner, took care that both filming units always had the right equipment available at the right time and place. The film equipment was moved between the locations, Norway, Jamaica, Italy, and across the UK.
“We are essentially a one-stop shop for anything a film project needs, whether by road, air, or sea, we are focused on keeping production moving. For urgent or last-minute shipments we also use our Express network. To keep pace with the strict and ever-changing international regulations for cargo, we have to stay ahead of the curve and really put our logistics expertise to work. It has been a great opportunity to once again show what we can deliver. We care deeply about the material entrusted to us,” says John Meller, Project Lead No Time To Die Logistics at DHL.
From costumes to underwater filming equipment and even some iconic props – each dispatched item was carefully inventoried throughout shooting. DHL ensured that the production had everything required at the right time and in the right place. These feats demonstrate Deutsche Post DHL Group’s mission: Excellence. Simply delivered.
‘No Time To Die’ will be released by Universal Pictures in Australia on 11 November, 2021.
