P2P Transport Is Now The AU’s Largest Taxi Ad Network

Good representation and identifiability are the key to any fleet signage in Brisbane, or anywhere else in Australia, and taxis are a great example of how lucrative this can be. ASX-listed company P2P Transport is aware of that fact, and has recently succeeded in its efforts to make itself the largest taxi advertisement network in the country, with its acquisition of Nonstop Media.

P2P Transport’s advertising division, Adflow, will take charge of all of the acquired media assets, which cover digital rooftop signage, in-vehicle entertainment options and fleet signage in Brisbane and across Australia. This acquisition bumps up Adflow’s scale, adding an additional 1,300 to its already sizable fleet of 2,600 vehicles.

Adflow GM Luke O’Connor says that Nonstop Media, alongside Rova Media in its prior state, have been some of the two biggest players in the taxi media market in the AU for the past 10 years, and they managed to acquire Nonstop because they have assets that no other option had, making the sale decision a quick and easy one to make.

Operating a  mesh network of vehicles travelling across the AU, with notable presence in the major capital cities, O’Connor says that Adflow’s fleet can now reach any street. The additional vehicles to its fleet means that the company can offer more than just traditional taxi back advertising, but also car wraps, digital entertainment, as well as digital taxi top displays.

Adflow is offering pay-per-display, as well as traditional purchasing methods, which can work even with tighter budgets.

O’Connor took some time to boast about Adflow’s digital rooftop signs, which he says are fully-Australian made, the product of two years worth of R&D. He says that these digital tops, thanks to the latest developments in technology, can show adaptive content, which varies based on the time of day, the location, as well as any programmable trigger that they feel clients might need.

He says that the market is looking towards dynamic content, and a programmatic marketplace, which would allow Adflow to trade location-based advertising via the AU’s major trading desks, and that’s something to look forward to.

Streamline Your Tradeshow Logistics And Save Money

Streamline Your Tradeshow Logistics And Save Money

For your tradeshow logistics, you may choose an expert to transport the tradeshow booth display, collateral materials and product samples rather than doing it yourself. By hiring someone experienced in this job, you may realize a significant saving from your transport budget. You also make your own team of experts more focused on the marketing and sales of your event.

If you plan and organize ahead, you stretch out your money and avoid stressful tasks, including the last-minute and pre-show preparations. You don’t have to fret with what happens to the tradeshow logistics; instead, you can partner with an experienced provider to make a difference. Here are some tips on how you can prepare for your conventions, tradeshows, and other events you need to exhibit:

  • If you choose to hire a shipping company to transport your exhibit products, choose a provider that specializes in tradeshow logistics.

 

  • If the host has chosen a shipping company to be their event carrier, they may provide promotions, like extra moving services at reduced prices. You may want to compare these packages with other vendors.

 

  • Secure an insurance from the freight carrier.

 

  • You need to have a tracking code to locate your shipment on when they arrive. This will ensure that the tradeshow logistics will deliver your items on time.

 

  • Consolidate your shipments whenever required, so you find everything you need. If you need to keep them in a warehouse in advance, then ensure your provider has something prepared for you.

 

  • Have your exhibit assembled on time, especially before the start of the show. Ideally, check out everything if it’s complete before the tradeshow opens.

Furthermore, you need to coordinate with the drayage contractor for a more efficient, cost-effective tradeshow logistics program. If you want to know what drayage means, it’s moving exhibit materials in a short distance towards the exhibitor’s exhibit space.

The drayage contractor must know all details to handle all requirements and specifications of the exhibit products. In this case, they may require additional fees for the drayage service. If you’re a knowledgeable tradeshow logistics provider, you can reduce these fees by coordinating with a shipping facility.
