Shipping high-tech products isn’t easy. In fact, even for an experienced 3PLs like MoveIt®, there’s a lot of finesse and planning that goes into a high-tech move. So, what does high-tech equipment consist of? Well, it can be almost anything!
From aerospace equipment to sensitive data servers, any technological equipment that requires creative or careful handling will fit the bill. Critical data center relocations, for example, necessitate creative shipping strategies; this is an excellent example of a high-tech shipping challenge that we love to tackle at MoveIt®.
Cutting Edge Technology
If your business is on the cutting edge of technology, then you’ll know that new shipping strategies are being created to ship your high-value products every single day. For instance, sensitive high-tech equipment might require blanket wrap shipping, white glove service, or a combination of a variety of shipping strategies.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, many tech-based businesses choose to have a 3PL design a customized logistics program for their products. This way, they can rest easy knowing their expensive items are in safe hands. By the same token, choosing a 3PL that doesn’t understand the intricacies of specialized shipping could be disastrous.

We Change with Technology
In the spring of 1979, MoveIt® founder, D.G. Partridge invented (yes, invented!) high-tech shipping with just an idea and a phone. Believe it or not, MoveIt® was the first company to specialize in technology-based shipping; we shipped large, mainframe computers.
Technology has changed dramatically since then, but the MoveIt® Companies mission has remained the same: to provide the safest, most economical logistics services for shippers of sensitive equipment.
The ability to adapt and continually look for new opportunities has allowed the MoveIt® Companies to enjoy steady growth, making it easy for us to provide our customers with the latest advances in the transportation industry.
Oh – by the way - did you know that we even made a delivery to NASA for a space shuttle lift off? If we can handle space shuttle parts, then we can handle your shipment.
