Premier Global Production Delivering Food Across America

PLSN Staff • News • April 16, 2020

NASHVILLE — The live music event is at a standstill for now, but Premier Global Production’s trucks are still rolling down the road, helping Americans stay nourished in these unprecedented times.

More details from PGP (www.premierglobalproduction.com):

PGP’s trucking fleet normally hauls staging and lighting equipment for one of America’s foremost production companies. But instead of driving steel stages and moving lights to a large music festivals right now, the Nashville-based company’s 18-wheelers and drivers are working for common haul trucking companies, moving critical supplies to much needed areas of America.

“We are putting what resources we can to work for America to help our country get through this pandemic,” says Premier Global Production’s President and CEO Troy Vollhoffer. “We are doing our part to keep the US population in food while we all wait out this unprecedented health crisis.”

Patrick Gail, operations manager for PGP, says the company’s trucks and drivers have been deployed in a variety of ways to help America keep its food supply chain intact.

“We have put part of our fleet to work with Koch Logistics delivering groceries from distribution centers to Walmarts and other grocery stores in Alabama and Michigan,” says Gail.  “We have put the remaining trucks to work moving goods designated as emergency loads for vendors such as Target and Amazon. Those trucks have been moving goods to distribution centers in the Midwest and North East.”

Until the pandemic levels out and live music events return, Vollhoffer says the trucks will keep rolling, moving  critical supplies wherever they are needed in the US.

“This great country will get back on its feet again,” he says. “Sooner rather than later.”

Premier Global Production is located in Nashville, TN, and supplies staging and lighting equipment for some of  largest music acts and festivals in the world. Their clients include Metallica, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chris Stapleton, Tim McGraw, Jake Owen, Lee Brice, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and numerous country music festivals throughout North America.
