Successful attendance at trade shows requires the timely arrival of the booth display and materials. So what do shippers need to know in order to prepare a shipment of trade show materials?
All items, including booth display, signs, brochures or general supplies, are classified the same. This eliminates having to itemize the various pieces on the bill of lading.
Details that will be required by the carrier include:
Carriers allow a specific amount of time for loading and unloading. If more than the allotted time is used, detention charges may be added by the carrier. Be sure to ask your carrier about their detention time policy to avoid additional fees.
Begin communicating shipment details with your transportation partner as early as possible. In the event that the materials are not ready until the very last minute, expediting the cargo is one solution available to shippers.
