It is important that you advise your carrier of this Marshalling Yard information to better facilitate your direct shipment to showsite.


The Marshalling Yard process is as follows:

  • All delivering carriers and privately owned vehicles must check in at the Marshaling Yard prior to show site deliveries.
  • Carriers need to arrive with light and heavy weight tickets for freight and will be redirected to a local scale if needed by GES staff.
  • All inbound shipments must be accompanied by a certified weight certificate and Bill of Lading.
  • At the Marshalling Yard, drivers will be assigned a number and will be dispatched to the appropriate dock as space is available. Waiting time at the Marshalling 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, the number of booths on a truck, etc.
  • After unloading, all vehicles must return to the Marshalling 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. 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.

Direct Shipment Bulletin

All drivers with direct Convention Center shipments MUST first report, IN PERSON, to the GES Marshaling Area in order to check-in.

Carriers need to arrive with light and heavy weight tickets for freight and will be redirected to a local scale if needed by GES staff.

Any vehicles, including company vans or company trucks, that attempt to report directly to the Convention Center will be rerouted to the GES Marshalling Area and put at the end of the line. Traffic control problems and a lack of sufficient parking space necessitates utilization of this dispatching system.

These procedures apply to both Delivery and Pick-up as well as Move-in and Move-out.

Please inform your haulers and drivers of these new procedures for direct shipments.
