What are Material Handling Services?

Tagged under:
Material Handling is the service to move and store your freight from the freight carrier. This service includes off-loading from delivery truck; delivery to your booth; removing empty crates and boxes; storing and returning the empties: and delivery to your carrier. This service is all provided exclusively by Freeman. It is a one-time charge for incoming and outgoing. See the Material Handling order form for rates. Exhibitors with 400 square feet or less will receive their first 500 lbs. of material handling FREE with no restrictions. It can be delivered to the Freeman Advance Warehouse, shipped directly to show site or delivered in a Privately Owned Vehicle (POV) or a rental vehicle which is driven by your employee (not temporary labor) to receive the 500 lbs. free. Material Handling over and above the 500 lbs. or exhibitors with 450 square feet or more will be charged the material handling rate.

What is a freight target date and how can I change it?

Tagged under:
This date has been established for the arrival of freight at the Las Vegas Convention Center using a common carrier. Target dates are listed by booth numbers. If you miss your target date, you may be required to pay a surcharge on material handling. If you ship in advance to the Freeman warehouse, the freight will be at your exhibit space at your designated target date. If you need to change your target date, e-mail Sam Blanton of Freeman at sam.blanton@freemanco.com.

How do I ship freight to the Show?

You can ship two ways: Ship in advance to the Freeman Warehouse September 22 – October 19, 2018 and Freeman will deliver your freight to your booth during your target time, or you can ship directly to the Las Vegas Convention Center (freight must arrive on your assigned target day). Drivers must check-in at the Freeman Marshaling Yard first to receive a Freight Door assignment before coming to the Las Vegas Convention Center.

How do I move in my booth vehicle?

Once these criteria have been met, visit the Freeman Service Desk in your hall and a Freeman representative will assist you to your booth.
