Quick Tip: Exhibition Shipping - Setting Yourself Up for Success
Exhibiting is exciting – but it can also be an extremely stressful experience. A large portion of that stress can be directly attributed to the shipping process. There’s just so much that can go wrong – and it’s all out of your hands.
Shipping costs account for about 12 percent of a company’s total trade show budget. But shipping can also affect other aspects of your budget. For example, drayage fees can skyrocket if you’re not careful. Or a delay on the carrier’s end can result in numerous fees for you.
Well, the good news is that you can set your carrier (and yourself) up for success. By dotting all your I’s and crossing your T’s you give yourself the best chance that all your crates, boxes, and pallets will arrive at the show, on time, and in good condition.
