X2 Elite Member Double Ace Cargo handled all the Logistics for the shooting of the latest installment of The Fast and the Furious Franchise in Cuba

*Press Releases in the Bottom

The Fast & the Furious is one of the highest grossing & longest running Movie Franchises in the World. With the 8th instalment titled “The Fate of the Furious” currently in theatres all around the World. The franchise has grossed over 3.8 billion USD in its 16 years of existence.

It should be noted that, it is after over 50 years that a Hollywood Motion picture was shot in Cuba & as there were a lot of logistics involved for this major event. The F&F team needed someone who they can trust & do the impossible. They found this in fellow X2 member Double Ace Cargo.

Vintage Cars being loaded on to the Hoegh Inchon

Double Ace Cargo handled all the Logistics for the event. The logistics operation comprehended a plane with crew and camera equipment and gear, a ship with all the cars, trailers and mobile units, a plane with all the pyrotechnics and a plane with food supplies.

Food for the Crew being loaded on to the Plane.

They chartered the Höegh Inchon which is an exclusive RoRo ship that they used to move all the cars, trailers & the massive special effects equipment. They also chartered a Saab 340 (IBC – N661BC) to deliver food supplies for the crew members.

Amongst the numerous challenges faced, the most notable challenge faced by the Double Ace Cargo team was that due to embargo on Cuba by the United States the regulatory challenges faced were very difficult to overcome. The studios also needed a special permit from the US to work in Cuba and also a special permit to have a temporary import to bring and remove all of their equipment as well as to shoot on the island.

As the carrier the Double Ace Cargo team needed to have a special License from BIS in order to take a ship to Cuba and be allowed to dock in the United States (Based on the previous regulations). They worked very closely with the studios preferred vendors as well with Cuba customs authority to get all the cargo cleared and delivered to the deployment site.

Another major challenge faced was that they had to return all the equipment back to the U.S on time as the crew still had to continue their shoot in the States & were under a very tight schedule.

Needless to say, Team Double Ace Cargo pulled through with astounding results.

Production Manager Carla Raij had this to say:

“I went looking for a shipping company that was capable of the impossible, I found them in Double Ace Cargo. They made the experience easy. No task that we requested was too hard or unreasonable. They met every request with a solution. I could not have asked for more”

 

X2 CEO Richard Overton commented

 

Projects like this are what we like to see being shared and used by our members to promote their unique brands. I am very proud to see fellow X2 Members go above and beyond in every project they handle, no matter how big or complex”
