Global Elite Group (GEG) expands its high value cargo services worldwide for specialty handling and logistics of valuables, priceless artwork, pharmaceuticals, documents, currency and specialized equipment. Often transporting items of value to a destination will require an approach involving 24 hour escorting to force protection. GEG high value services are always customized and involve a level of expertise few companies can handle. “Priceless works of art, currency, valuables and even pharmaceuticals require a secure transport service beyond what shipping companies offer,” stated William McGuire, President & CEO, Global Elite Group.

Transporting valuables and other items of importance from art to an entire nation’s historical depository involves extreme attention to detail and supervision techniques. Each assignment is carried out like a well-choreographed sequence of movements, which analyze travel routes, weather conditions, warehouse environments, management procedures, storage safety and exchange at every interval, until arrival at its final destination. GEG prepares every shipment for travel by individually reviewing and approving every inch of space the shipment will pass through or come in contact with. This could involve customized packing, palletization, warehouse location and orientation inside the aircraft. “As an example, during palletization we make sure there is a safe proximity from hazards that could pose a danger or damage of any kind from jostling to spills. We follow industry best practices and client specific requests to ensure handling is carried out with utmost care and professionalism.”

GEG personally reviews other items being shipped with their cargo. “We have gone as far as clearing a warehouse to create a safety zone with full force protection around a shipment. If that’s what it takes, we will provide it.”

The need for these services has grown in recent years. Sophisticated methods of crime require a level of experience that comes with years of working in this niche market along with a broader understanding of the security industry. GEG understands the client’s concern for safe travel conditions and addresses the transportation issues from country to country. GEG provides international security management services to companies involved in all facets of transportation around the globe and utilizes its shipping networks with innovative tracking technology and supervision services, logistic analysis and military resources to ensure the safe travel of high value cargo. GEG works directly with clients or as a third party provider of services. The company has also assisted many governments with transportation services.
