DHL has been managing the logistics throughout the entire duration of BTHVN on Tour. This includes not only transportation but also the installation and assembly. For each stage of the tour, DHL moves seven tonnes of exhibits and equipment by truck and by air. Over the two years of the tour, the freight will have traveled 50,000 km .
As a partner of many famous orchestras and museums, DHL has extensive experience in transporting instruments and exhibits that are not only valuable but also exceptionally fragile. The exhibits sourced from the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn are individually packed in custom-made crates. These are individually lined with padding and specially sealed to protect the exhibits from damage due to shock, vibration, or temperature changes. The high-grade containers are shipped using DHL Smart Sensor Tracking technology. This ensures that the temperature and humidity are maintained at a constant level throughout.
