Aroundthe World


SOS Global is a worldwide logistics and transportation service provider. Since 1986 we offer customized logistics solutions for the complex and time-critical event industry.

Our structure as owner-operated, medium-sized company makes us swift decision makers. That enables SOS Global with the necessary flexibility to respond quickly to the ever-changing needs of our customers.

Our project coordination is controlled from two international hubs: New Bern, North Carolina, USA and Hamburg, Germany. From here we communicate with our network of event logistics partners around the globe.

Based on our project manager model we provide for each of your events an experienced logistics specialist who will consult and support with his forwarding all-rounder knowledge. SOS Global project managers focus on high quality and personal service and are available 24/7 - if required also on site.

Our strength lies mainly in our appetite for challenges, our passion for the extraordinary.
