Sussex Transport Wimbledon Delivery

With a fleet of HIABs, curtain side, flatbeds, Artic’s, 7.5t, 18t, Moffatts and sprinter vans, Sussex Transport are called upon to move a variety of goods up and down the country on a regular basis. Once again, we have been asked to transport TV equipment to and from the Wimbledon Tennis Championships for one of our regular clients.

This year the Wimbledon Tennis Championships will run from 25 June to 8 July – when the weather may finally have settled down – maybe!

Strawberries, enthusiastic crowds, famous faces and of course wall to wall television coverage, all add to the atmosphere and tradition, as well as the rain!

It takes an enormous amount of coordination from a multitude of companies and organisers to ensure those two weeks in June run smoothly.

•The Wimbledon Finals are obliged to be shown live and in full on terrestrial television (BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5) by government mandate.

•Ball girls and boys start training for Wimbledon in February

•700 local children apply for the job of ball girls and boys – only 250 are selected

•One strawberry at Wimbledon will set you back around 25p! (one strawberry and cream portion is £2.50 … approximately 10 strawberries per serving)

Every year, Sussex Transport assists with the smooth running of Wimbledon by delivering/collecting vital TV and recording equipment for the broadcasters of the Championship.

Loading in one of our satellite-tracked 18t box, tail-lift vehicles, Sussex Transport are tasked with ensuring that the specialist and expensive items are safely transported in a timely fashion to meet with the tight schedule surrounding the Championship. Satellite tracking means the client can be informed of where their delivery is at every leg of the journey.

Truly a championship delivery service – game, set and match!
