Angles of Incidence

The mission

Angles of Incidence is the result of the third Artist-in-Residence Exchange programme that was organised by British Council and the Singapore International Foundation. PSP’s task was to transport the precious pieces of artwork created by Randy Chan, 15,000 km from Singapore to the UK.

PSP is well known for its ability to transport luxury yachts and motorboats around the world, yet its vast reputation meant that when valuable art also needed moving, there was only one company Angles of Incidence were going to call.

The response

Every job is unique and the skilled team at PSP always advocates the best solution in tailoring each shipment to the customers’ requirements.  This case was no different and the logistics firm proved that they were more than up for the job at hand by moving this unusual piece of cargo.

PSP’s global partnerships provide a seamless service in which worldwide operations such as this really are just like a walk in the park.

Divisions used

  • PSP’s Singapore partner
  • PSP London

 

The result

 

PSP transported the nine precious pieces of art to the UK by sea freight, packing them into a 40ft high cube container. The company's staff then oversaw the unloading at Felixstowe and arranged onward transportation to Inner Temple Gardens, where it took a team of eight people to unload the artwork.

 

But the team didn’t stop there. Once the pods were on site, PSP’s art team worked alongside artist Randy to assemble the pods, which had been dismantled for transport, back together. In total, 17 people from PSP worked on various elements of the project.

What was said?

 

“While many may think of us as a purely marine-focussed logistics company, particularly considering PSP’s sponsorship of the PSP Southampton Boat Show, we transport much more than just boats. We do a lot within the art and architecture worlds, transporting everything from installations like these to tiny, delicate architects’ models.”
