LAS VEGAS -- At US customs, the tension is palpable. The officer scrutinizes our passports. After what seems an eternity, he sends a signal to the two officers near him to lead us to a small, dimly lit room. On the only table in the room, a box of latex gloves. We all hoped it to be a bad dream about then.
Fortunately, yes! Thanks to the meticulous planning of the four members of the RTX logistics team, that worst-case-scenario never happened. Why? To take part at the world's largest car show exhibition -- the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas -- the challenge is to clear customs with as much promotional material as it takes to showcase RTX Wheels at its first appearance at this prestigious event, without alarming officials.
The team's first mission was to ensure that all RTX promotional material arrived safely and on time. In particular, the 40 wheels hand-picked specifically for SEMA.
