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

The Marshaling Yard process is as follows:
  • All delivering carriers and privately owned vehicles must check in at the Marshaling Yard prior to show site deliveries.
  • All inbound shipments must be accompanied by a certified weight certificate and Bill of Lading. If one is not provided, you will incur a special handling surcharge for the entire shipment.
  • At the Marshaling Yard, drivers will be assigned a number and will be dispatched to the appropriate dock 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, the number of booths on a truck, etc.
  • All drivers are expected to adhere to GES' policies and procedures with respect to the loading and unloading of trailers.
