Marco Polo in Israel – Importing Scenery for Filming

Type of Activity:     International Shipping and Customs Clearance

Operating Sector:     MaritimeAir, Overland

Destination:     Israel

Country of Origin:     Italy

Several years ago, a historical film about Marco Polo was filmed in Israel.
The scenery, accessories and costumes were prepared in Italy: special costumes, a lot of weapons including 2-meter spears, shields and many other items which included a large quantity of very delicate accessories.
The production team debated how and when to transport the scenery and costumes to Israel. They wanted the relevant equipment to arrive gradually, according to the need of each stage of the production. They deliberated and procrastinated until the last minute, that the filming was about to begin, but the scenery, accessories, and costumes were still in Italy.
When it is necessary to get a shipment quickly and urgently, air transport is the preferred mode. In this case there was no choice and it had to be dealt with immediately and quickly. A manager of the MultiTrans team personally travelled to Italy, arrived at the outskirts of Rome where the company that supplied the scenery was located. He personally oversaw the packaging of the scenery, the accessories and costumes and the loading onto trucks. The trucks took the equipment to the airport where they were loaded onto a plane directly to Israel. Thanks to MultiTrans’ personal escort and the quick move, we managed to bring the equipment on time for the start of the filming, to the delight of the production team of the film.
