When you’re getting ready for a trade show and you’re responsible for shipping everything for your exhibit, such as sales collateral and giveaways, it can be a challenge to know how all of it will make it there. Many freight shipping companies offer services that will ship your trade show exhibits to your destination. Here are the benefits of using freight shipping for your trade show:
Freight shipping companies have the experience of moving trade show exhibits. Companies offer guaranteed delivery for the day you need it. Freight shipping companies have strong relationships with local unions and contractors to ensure that your trade show exhibit gets set up and taken down in a timely manner.
Freight shipping companies have experience moving a wide range of shipments, from less-than-truckload (LTL), full truckload (FTL) to air and ocean freight. They’re experienced in handling unexpected situations and know how to meet deadlines. Additionally, they offer flexible options that allow you to ship your trade show exhibit anywhere in the world. Freight shipping companies have coordinated inbound and outbound procedures that make pickup easy for you and offer you the ability to schedule freight pickups on days, nights or weekends.
Many companies offer on-site exhibit managers that will monitor your inbound shipments. This ensures that your trade show exhibit gets to its destination on time and gets set up quickly and efficiently. Freight shipping companies have experienced trade show specialists that are there to help you with set-up and breakdown.
A reputable trade show shipping company will offer updated tracking information for your exhibit. This will allow you to check the progress of your trade show exhibit so you can be rest assured that your exhibit makes it to its destination on time. Many companies offer a variety of ways to track your package, including online, on the phone or through a live chat.
