Hi Luke, Shotput pro is a good alternative and supported by windows. It’s not as robust feature wise as silvertstack but its cheaper too. I have also heard Hedge is good, but have no experience with it myself.

Hi Luke, “Typically my cart and equipment is prepped at a camera rental house before shipment. Its loaded onto a production truck with the rest of the camera package and is driven to where ever we’re are shooting US. Once or twice I have had to ship everything via fedex. Break everything down and box it In this case I just bought a UPS at a electronics store locally for the job. I haven’t worked internationally. Depending on the needs of the job I would use a super compact build if I’m traveling with it. Maybe even get a ultra portable cart from Inovativ. Luckily though the shipping is 99% of the time handled by the camera rental house. “
