Many of us enjoy watching sports, but have you ever thought about what it takes to get all the equipment the average football, baseball, or basketball team needs from one venue to another? Traveling with sports equipment is a unique challenge for several reasons:
A football team might play in a different stadium every week. A professional basketball team could play in cities across the country on back-to-back nights. It’s imperative that all the equipment a team may need, including uniforms, balls, pads and other gear, is ready and waiting when the team arrives.
Much of the equipment a sports team carries is valuable. There are many collectors who would pay hundreds or thousands of dollars for a uniform, which may motivate some people to try getting their hands on memorabilia by any means necessary. Shipping sports equipment may require extra security.
- Unusual Items
Football pads are large, awkwardly shaped, and heavy. A basketball is filled with air and may not react well to the low pressure in an aircraft cargo hold. All the tape, tools, and supplies the team trainer needs must be stored securely but easily accessible. That’s where sports equipment packaging comes in.
Sports teams rely on their equipment managers to have everything they need ready to go, no matter where or when a game is happening. Equipment managers rely on specialized sports equipment transport cases to get the job done. These cases must be durable and secure while still being easy to carry on any mode of travel.
