Deadline Date Information
FCL ocean shipments should arrive at the recommended port ten to twelve (10-12) working days prior to the exhibitor’s target move-in date. (Freight that arrives after this deadline may be subject to overtime, truck waiting time, showsite delivery charges, advance warehouse late arrival surcharges and off-target delivery surcharges from the showsite material handling contractor for this event.)
All inbound international freight should be shipped on a PREPAID basis to the airport or port listed above. Consignee instructions for all international documentation will be provided at the time your shipment is booked with GES. Do NOT consign any international shipment to or in care of GES or the show organizer; do not confuse the ship to addresses listed in the exhibitor manual with how to consign international documents.
Cost Estimates, Shipping Orders and Security Endorsements
GES Logistics requires that our customers receive a written cost estimate of their charges based on the information provided by the exhibitor or their agent. If the customer accepts the cost estimate, they or their agent must provide GES Logistics with a written confirmation (for inbound charges) or a signed shipping order and security endorsement (for outbound charges). The exhibitor or their on-site representative must have their outbound freight packed, labeled and documented as per GES Logistics instructions to insure prompt pickup of the outbound freight. All cost estimates are subject to GES Logistics and our carriers' terms, conditions, limits of liability and instructions. The actual charges billed are based on the actual weight, dimensions, value and circumstances of an actual shipment. Please note that all outbound freight is handled as 'unknown shipper' cargo as per TSA regulations and cannot be transported on passenger aircraft.
GES Logistics has an extensive network of international companies experienced in all aspects of international trade show logistics and transportation. On request, we will provide contact information in the appropriate country for a qualified international company. In addition, we will ask the company to contact you to answer any questions or provide any information.
Please note that numerous items are restricted or require additional government agency approvals before importation into the US. These include but are not limited to some electronic equipment, radio receivers or transmitters, computer or related equipment, foodstuffs or beverages, apparel or textiles (including carpet), and more. Please contact GES International Logistics to determine if any of your exhibit materials are restricted.
