GLS transports EFA statuettes

04/30/2018

Parcel company GLS is transporting the European Film Awards statuettes for the fourth time in a row – over several stages.

The Awards, which are bestowed by the European Film Academy, are amongst Europe’s most important cultural prizes and were handed out for the 28th time on 12 December. The winners are chosen by the Academy’s more than 3,000 film industry members from all over Europe. This year, the recipients include Sir Michael Caine, Charlotte Rampling, and Christoph Waltz.

Transport service for trophies

In the weeks leading up to the ceremony, official logistics partner GLS took the statuettes from London-based jewellery and trophy designer Theo Fennell to this year’s venue, Haus der Berliner Festspiele in Berlin. The trophies are yet to be engraved when they arrive at the gala ceremony. The names of the winners stay under wraps until the all-important envelopes are opened.

Following the event, GLS will transport the silver statuettes back to London for engraving. The grand finale is the act of delivering the finished EFA trophies to winners all over Europe.

Safe delivery, all the way to the mantelpiece

“We are delighted to be able to once again provide logistics support for the European Film Awards and ensure that the statuettes are delivered safely and reliably,” says Anne Putz, Head of Corporate Communication at the GLS Group.
