At Midnight on the 13th July 2013, a team of six from Expo World Logistics embarked on a 12 month tour of INTU shopping malls in the UK, with 34 life size baby elephant art sculptures, plinths, shop and enough merchandise to sell for a month at each venue.

Our first stop was Kings Cross station. We were given between 1am and 4:30am to unload, position and clean 13 elephants, before the public arrived for their daily commute and the press arrived for what would be the launch of the first elephant parade tour in the world.

The tour’s first leg, INTU Watford shopping mall, was delivered overnight on Saturday the 21st July ready for trading on the Sunday. This was to be the only mall to have a Saturday night install, the remaining malls were packed up, loaded, driven and unloaded, installed and set up all on a Sunday night and we were given the target to be off the mall floor by 0730 on the Monday, ready for trading.

After 14 locations and 12 months we successfully completed the tour on the 27th July 2014. The elephants were kept in our warehouse for a further six weeks whilst they were found new homes through an online auction. We shipped and delivered these wonderful art sculptures, which we had become extremely fond of, to their new owners across the world, which included; Australia, Singapore, Nigeria and the UK.
