Expanded Cartload Service
Drayage is the term for the handling of exhibit materials from the dock at the show location or warehouse to/from the exhibitor’s booth within the show hall. This charge is over and above the cost of your shipment to the show hall or warehouse. The Drayage fee is based on weight and number of packages received at the dock or warehouse and moved to the booth. Special handling charges could apply due to the size and shape of materials.
No wheels (dollies and carts) are allowed on the show floor but you may choose to hand carry your material in through the front or the designated hand carry door.
Cartload Service is also available for those vehicles that qualify. In many cases the Cartload Service is the most appropriate, easiest and inexpensive way to move smaller shipments that weigh less than 300 pounds per cartload. Utilizing the Cartload Service will save you time and energy and is very affordable. To take advantage of this service, please use the Cartload Service Order Form in the GES portion of this service kit, or order on-site at the GES Service center.
