Changes to global sales and operations functions to enhance commercial strategy that focuses on the entertainment industry.
MNX Global Logistics today announced a key executive appointment that will bolster account management and business development, as well as drive operational consistency worldwide to better serve our entertainment and media customer base.
In the last two years, MNX acquired two top-tier companies in the time-critical and secure-shipment logistics space, Network Global Logistics (NGL) and Global First. The integration with MNX will consolidate the expertise and knowledge of all three companies to form the single largest entertainment and media focused logistics company in the world.
MNX’s entertainment logistics capabilities include:
- Dedicated entertainment operations desk located in Los Angeles, California
- Expedited transportation solutions such as Next-Flight-Out, On-Board Courier and Charter Flights
- White-glove secure handling of dailies, production equipment, props, and scripts
- Rigorous operating procedures focused on security and anti-piracy requirements
- World-wide customs clearance, importer of record and ATA carnets
James Galante named President, MNX Entertainment and Transportation Verticals
Galante was previously the Founder and President of Global First, a company that MNX acquired earlier this year. In this new role, Galante will lead the global commercial development of the Entertainment and Media vertical at MNX.
“MNX started in the early-80s by helping Entertainment and Media companies transport 35mm film reels around the world. Today, that legacy continues but it has evolved, and MNX supports the industry in a fast-paced digital world,” said James Galante. “I am excited to lead the efforts to further enhance the services MNX provides for our Entertainment and Media customers and to continue building on the legacy maintained by MNX over the past four decades.”
“By isolating the commercial development of the entertainment vertical under one leader, MNX can better tailor services that exceed the needs of the industry and capitalize on the significant growth opportunities that exist within the market segment,” added John Labrie, MNX Chief Executive Officer.
