European operations

For trade show and event shipments between the UK and EU, we tend to perform the operation by road. This means that European customs regulations need to be considered. They vary slightly from state to state, and in some cases from venue to venue. By working with selected carriers and agents most suitable to perform each operation, we ensure that individual shipment needs are met and have the correct documentation for a seamless delivery.

Global operations

Shipments destined for events and exhibitions outside of mainland Europe tend to be shipped by sea or air. Before deciding on which, we consider the type of cargo, the size of the shipment, and the timing required. The time between the goods being available, and the time needed for the shipment to clear and be handled in the destination country is a key factor to ensuring your exhibits make it to the show on time.
