Are you planning your exhibitions for 2021? The logistics of getting all your equipment, banners and branded materials from point A to point B can be quite demanding. Express shipping through a freight forwarding company can not only save you money but time.
If you are attending an exhibition in Spain and you need to get all your kit there, doing it in a cost-effective and timely manner is critical. With all the best planning in the world, however, things can go awry. What happens if you need to get an emergency delivery out to your team at an exhibition? How can you be sure everything arrives safely?
Building a long-term relationship with a professional freight forwarding company makes sense for a lot of reasons.
Why Use a Shipping Company for Your Next Exhibition?
There are several benefits of using a shipping company rather than trying to handle things directly yourself. These types of company handle all sorts of cargo and are experts at getting small and large consignments from one end of the world to another.
A shipping company will be able to:
- Decide the quickest and most cost-effective way to get your exhibition stock from your business to the event site.
- Fast shipments can be organised if you have an emergency and need to get goods to the exhibition site in extra quick time.
- A shipping company can arrange a direct delivery to and from the exhibition so there are no stops or unnecessary loading and unloading along the way which can increase the chance of damage.
- For European locations, a shipping company can organise same day pickup and next day delivery, where each consignment is fully trackable.
When you are organising an exhibition, the first thing you need is a reliable, fast service you can depend on 100%. Whether you are sending your event infrastructure in one batch or need an emergency delivery, you want a dedicated delivery van or truck that exactly meets your needs.
What are Dedicated Vehicle Consignments
The last thing you want if you are operating to tight parameters and need everything getting to the exhibition on time, is for your kit to be packed up with other deliveries. A dedicated vehicle consignment means that you have a van or truck allocated to your delivery and a driver that is with it all the way.
That means you can be sure the shipping company has a full focus on getting your exhibition equipment from A to B in the quickest time. The delivery can be tailored exactly to your needs. Some exhibition stands nowadays are highly technical with a lot of different equipment, technology and branded bulky structures. Getting everything to one location in Europe can be pretty challenging.
The good news is that a shipping company has not only the right tools and logistics already in place, but they can ensure that you get a cost-effective service that works for your business.
Whether you’re a large corporation or a small start-up, shipping is generally the most efficient way to get your exhibition setup from your business to the event site in good condition and ready to be put together once your staff get there.
