Participating in a trade show is an excellent way to market your business, but trade show freight shipping is the last thing you need to worry about. Trade shows require at least a year of planning, scheduling and organizing, just to get your trade show display or exhibit on the truck. Once it gets there, then the real work begins. As you pull together all the materials you’ll need for your exhibit, and the costs add up, you may be looking for ways to lower the cost burden without lessening the opportunity. Shipping your booth and materials to and from the show can be very expensive, especially if you use the official show carrier.
There is no requirement to use the official carrier, and you stand to save a lot of money when you use a 3PL like FreightCenter to book your trade show freight shipping. What’s more, when you call on FreightCenter to take care of your trade show shipping, you’ll receive excellent service for a fraction of the cost. The key is competition, and FreightCenter is where top carriers compete for your business. Want proof?
