Film Set Transport and Logistics Services

When hiring a transport company for your film set, you need to ensure they understand the nature of the job – the occasional antisocial hours, fragile and luxury freight, urgent collections and deliveries at short notice with no room for error. Film schedules can change rapidly due to weather conditions or the unavailability of key actors etc., so the production and transport departments will be relying on the company they’ve hired to not let them down. They will require drivers who are capable of loading equipment safely and efficiently, safeguarding the items for transportation.

GT Film Transport Ltd is the company you need. We are a professional film logistics company, covering the North London and Buckinghamshire areas, and specialising in film set transport services.

Toilet Facilities

GT Film Transport offers a range of solutions for on-set toilet facilities with standard honey wagons and portable amenities. We have also introduced luxury mobile toilet facilities to our TV set transport services. These 4-bay honey wagons are suitable for both studio and location settings, and marked with appropriate plaques to indicate their potential usage – adults, children, men or women, for example.

Our eco-friendly luxury toilets are made from recycled materials and use solar panels for energy, allowing them to run independently if necessary.

Waste Collection

As part of our film logistics services, we also take care of all waste collection and disposal on film sets and bases. We’ll position bins on film sets and bases to collect all rubbish, including food, on a daily or weekly basis. The waste is delivered to zero landfill recycling centres in order to maintain our eco-friendly pledge and reduce our carbon foot print.

GT Film Transport also supports albert, an environmental organisation which aims to reduce waste within the TV and film production services by improving their carbon footprint. The system originated at the BBC in 2011 and adopted by BAFTA.

Wet Waste

It may not be the most glamourous part of the film industry but we provide this necessary wet waste service nationwide 24/7. Our fleet of tankers are capable of emptying all the relevant facilities on site, including honey wagons, artists’ and support trailers. Regardless of their position, this service can remove a trailer’s wet waste from awkward angles or inaccessible places.

  • Artist Greenrooms
