Three vehicles are used for local and outside deliveries. These deliveries include cans of film, graphics and displays materials, supplies and equipment such as cameras, lighting equipment, etc. The trucks are also used' by various production crews when shooting on location where there is considerable camera and lighting equipment required and where it would not be economical to use a local trucker.
