Forwarding agencies handle any type of goods and also provide additional logistics services. In the exhibition sector in particular, these service providers play a crucial role in the transportation of trade fair equipment. When it comes to local jobs, it is advisable to work with a regionally based company. The suppliers often specialize in different kinds of cargo, freight routes or logistics services. When selecting a suitable freight forwarding partner, it should be always be born in mind which goods need to be conveyed, whether the shipment is time critical, and if for example the handling of customs formalities, or the intermediate storage of the cargo needs to be covered by the service provider. The hiring of additional services from the forwarding company allows the exhibiting company to keep the trade show related efforts as low as possible and guarantee a smooth process.
