When shooting in a large town or city, TV or Film unit logistics isn’t usually such a problem. Take that same film production out on location and getting all equipment, cast and crew on set can become a logistical nightmare. That’s where Location Logistics come in.
We’re experts in special vehicle access ensuring safety first on every trip. We can cross load technical equipment from standard transportation trucks into our speciality vehicles and trailers. Delivering directly to the set whether this be buried in woodland, along sandy beaches, muddy fields or even in difficult to access town centre locations. We’re also available for general logistics, and have spent many nights driving around multi storey car parks with equipment.
When working on these types of location then generally the cast vehicles cannot make it to set so our vehicles are then tasked to be unit vehicles. Our vehicles are used to site the plant on location – honey wagons, generators, tower lights, bowsers and we service this equipment throughout the shoot.
I am a Supervising Location Manager who has worked with Craig and his team on many productions. When I break down a script and read the following challenging locations, i.e. beaches, quarries, mountains, anywhere without tarmac. Location Logistics are my first call. They will bring the essential equipment you require, professionalism and the LOGIC to complete the filming day in these testing environments.
I have worked with Graig Marvin on many shoots and is highly recommendable and a professional at what he does he gives 110% and goes above and beyond to help solve any issues thrown at him. Always a pleasure to see him on any job.

Having worked with Craig and his team on a number of occasions. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Nothing is ever a problem. They go way and beyond in every aspect of the job.
Every team member has a practical skill that will inevitably help the location team/ production over the course of the shoot.
Don’t ever go off road or a shoot that requires a build without them. You won’t ever find a better team.

I first met Craig in 2015 working for ITV. Craig is not just a logistical supplier, but also a person of great integrity. He is a joy to work with and will not let you down. I wholeheartedly recommend Craig for all your requirements.
Red5 Films Ltd
Location Logistics in my opinion is the best facility provider of equipment and personnel in servicing locations and facilitating camera and locations departments on all terrain sets and locations.
His impeccable service to production is excellent and his experience is colossal in all aspects of Feature Films Tv production commercials concerts festivals pop promos and corporate work.
Craig is dedicated to getting the job done
A fantastic time keeper and always his glass is half full with great camaraderie fun and smiles but with the job ahead always at the forefront of each day’s challenges
I would recommend anyone who requires his services to act quickly as he is always in demand for his total dedication to the job requirements and his team are superb
I had the pleasure of working with Craig on several different productions between 2015-19. Craig and his team always went above and beyond. Craig also has the brilliant skill of thinking outside of the box and would always go out of his way to help other departments. I always knew that our team and gear were in good hands whenever we worked together. Although Craig only came out with us on day calls he always felt like he was part of the full time crew, with his energetic, funny and friendly personality. I cannot recommend Craig highly enough.

I would highly recommend Craig and his services to productions looking for this type of support. Location logistics have always been quick to respond and always deliver a high level of service.
Production Service Manager
I have worked with Craig and the Location Logistics team a number of times over the past few years and I would highly recommend to any locations teams / film crews for additional support when shooting in logistically challenging locations. The gents are very hard working and are always friendly. Their kit is reliable, well maintained and fit for purpose. They have proved to be a massive support for me and my team when we’ve shot in difficult spots such as the moors, beaches, lakes etc. What differentiates Location Logistics from any others is that they really understand departmental requirements when shooting on location – nothing is too much hard work – also the fact that they are very responsive on comms and have great radio etiquette. To have them on board on tricky location days is always a relief and pleasure!
I have worked with Location Logistics for many years on numerous big projects. They are, quite simply, brilliant at what they do. Whether you require a fleet of high–end 4×4’s, quads or pick ups and trailers, the service Craig and his team provide is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble and all the guys go above and beyond to deliver the very best service. I wouldn’t use anyone else.
The best in the business.
We’ve had Craig and the boys out countless times and each time they have been superb. They get how a film set works and it’s always reassuring having them out on set, knowing that aspect of the shoot is safely and professionally taken care of.
On ‘Das Boot’ we had a tricky beach location 4 miles distance from the nearest practical access. Craig and his team prepped and serviced the location for us brilliantly. They are an extremely competent and resourceful team. Nice guys to work with too. I will definitely work with them again.
Location Manager UK
Location Logistics were game-changers for us and made locations with tricky (or exhausting!) crew and kit access instantly workable. We had looked into finding a more local way of making things work but ultimately we needed to know that we had a failsafe method of moving both crew, kit and cast along beaches where we had tight shooting windows due to tides. The Location Logistics team gave me complete confidence in their assessment of what was and wasn’t possible. They were incredibly professional, helpful well beyond what might normally be expected and, most importantly, just great guys to have around set. 10/10 recommendation from me!
We worked with Location Logistics over a 3 day shoot in a particularly difficult beach location. Craig and his guys were absolutely brilliant at offering up the best solutions to get the job done and came equipped with a wealth of knowledge and experience that became invaluable to us. Couldn’t have done it without them. Great guys and a great service.
I know we couldn’t have achieved our filming without Location Logistics, the guys couldn’t have been more helpful and so positive in the terrible weather conditions we had. Many thanks and ill be calling you soon!
I have worked closely with Location Logistics for many years. Craig and his team always show 100% commitment and enthusiasm on every project. I cannot recommend them enough

The gents at Location Logistics are always my first port of call when looking at servicing a tricky location, whether that be on beaches, in fields or in the mountains. We’ve yet to find a location that they haven’t been able to make work for us! For me it is really important to be able to trust any third party company that I bring in and trust in Location Logistics I do. Their kit is impeccable and they are willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to help any department – literally nothing is a problem, which is refreshing but simply symptomatic as to what delightful guys they all are.
