Trade show shipping can be a hassle. AFP Expo can help.

Trade Show Shipping Requires the Skills of an Experienced Logistics Company

If your show booth or products arrive late at a trade show, it can spell disaster. Many events require a year or more of planning, and having that fall apart due to a freight company dropping the ball can seriously impact your bottom line, not to mention the undo stress that is caused. A problem with shipping will not only affect your ability to sell product, but it will also negatively impact your reputation and cause you to miss out on potential business. Because trade shows offer no second chances, it is important to work with a logistics company that is experienced with trade show shipping to ensure the event goes off without a hitch.
