NEP Group takes over SOS Global Express
NEP Group, an outsourced technical production partner supporting premier content producers of live sports and entertainment, has acquired SOS Global Express (SOS), an independent international freight forwarding and full-service logistics company that specialises in supporting clients in broadcast, entertainment, music and professional sports teams and leagues.
The addition of SOS is consistent with NEP’s stated strategy to become the world leader in broadcast services and live events, providing key logistics and shipping services to get equipment where it needs to go, when it needs to get there. With the addition of a well-respected, experienced freight forwarding company, NEP will be able to better utilise its assets and, as a result, provide better service and more streamlined planning and delivery of equipment for client events.
Moving forward, SOS will remain independent, continuing to operate under the SOS brand and serving all clients. NEP and the industry will be able to leverage SOS’ services including: air, sea and road freight transportation, logistics planning, customs brokerage services, insurance, packaging and warehousing.
