Marshaling Yard and Direct Information

Tips for New Exhibitors

  • What is a marshaling yard? The Marshaling Yard is an offsite location where trucks are checked in and held until dock space for loading/unloading becomes available onsite.
  • Why is a marshaling yard used? Large shows use a marshaling yard to ease vehicle congestion and to ensure the loading/unloading process runs smoothly.
  • It may take several hours between the time your carrier/driver checks-in at the Marshaling Yard and the shipment to be delivered to your booth space

Marshaling Yard Process

It is important that you advise your carrier of this Marshaling Yard information to better facilitate your direct shipment to showsite.
  • All delivering carriers and privately owned vehicles must check in at the Marshaling Yard prior to show site deliveries. All inbound shipments will be weighed at the Marshaling Yard to obtain the gross or heavy weight.
  • All inbound shipments must be accompanied by a certified weight certificate and Bill of Lading.
  • Please make sure your carrier's BOL on the inbound indicates machinery, display, carpet, and/or hanging sign. If this is not indicated additional charges may apply
  • At the Marshaling Yard, drivers will be assigned a number and will be dispatched to the appropriate dock at Las Vegas Convention Center as space is available. Waiting time at the Marshaling Yard should be anticipated by your carrier. Every effort is made to keep this waiting time at a minimum. However, the waiting time depends on many factors, including the number of vehicles arriving to unload/load, the type of loads being unloaded at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the number of booths on a truck, etc.
  • After unloading, all vehicles must return to the Marshaling Yard with a completed copy of the GES Receiving Report to be weighed to obtain the light weight. This determines the total weight of your shipment. In the event of weight discrepancies or shipments received without a certified weight certificate, a $30.00 fee will be charged per shipment. Drivers who fail to return to weigh-out may face having their shipment billed at the heavy weight.
  • All drivers are expected to adhere to GES' policies and procedures with respect to the loading and unloading of trailers.
