Advanced Freeman Warehouse Label
Direct to Show Site Shipping Label

||Exhibitors who will be shipping via air may contact Freeman for services and answers to questions by calling 800-995-3579 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Drayage / Material Handling / Personally Owned Vehicles (POVs)
Exhibitors in POV’s (privately owned vehicles) may hand-carry their own materials into the exhibit facility through the Porte Cochere or the loading docks. Hand carried freight is defined as one item that can be easily carried by an individual exhibitor, without the need for dollies, or other mechanized equipment. Only full-time employees of the exhibiting company will be allowed to hand-carry items. All packages are subject to inspection by facility personnel. The use or rental of dollies, flat trucks and other mechanical equipment is not permitted.
If you will require labor for delivering your materials to your booth from the loading dock, union labor will be available to help you with your drayage. Unloading or reloading at the dock of contracted carriers will be handled by Freeman. Please reference the Labor Jurisdiction document for complete details on labor regulations.
We encourage exhibitors to have their material delivered to the warehouse in advance to take advantage of the most cost-effective material handling rates.
|Move-In & Installation Schedule
The installation of exhibits will take place as follows:
Sunday, August 29th 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
*All freight must be moved in, Exhibits set up, and aisles clear by 4:00PM
Set-up and dismantle labor must be performed by your own full-time employees or by union labor. Union labor must be hired through Freeman. The hiring of casual labor is not permitted. Exhibitors may hire an Exhibitor Appointed Contractor (EAC) to supervise the installation and dismantling of their exhibit. The EAC will not be allowed to perform labor required to set-up and dismantle the exhibit unless they are members of the appropriate local union. If you are planning to use an Exhibitor Appointed Contractor for the event, please submit their information through the Exhibitor Appointed Contractor form
||No display material, in whole or in part, may be removed from the exhibit area prior to the close of the event at 1:30 pm on Tuesday, August 31. Move-out is from 1:30 pm – 6:00 pm. All Exhibitor materials must be removed from the exhibit facility by 6:00 pm.
|Excessive Trash and Abandonment
||Any excessive trash which consists of display materials, carpet, padding, crates and/or pallets will be disposed of and charged both a handling fee and disposal fee during move-in. Excessive booth materials and/or literature left in the booth at the end of the published exhibitor move-out that is not labeled for an outbound shipment will be considered abandoned and deemed as trash. The exhibitor will be charged for the removal and disposal of these items.
|Returning Your Freight
If you have not done so in advance, you may make arrangements to have your exhibit returned by visiting the Exhibitor Service Desk area on site. Every outbound shipment will require a material handling agreement and labels which can be procured from Freeman.
All exhibitor materials must be removed from the exhibit facility by Tuesday, August 31, 2021 at 6:00 PM.
To ensure all exhibitor materials are removed from the exhibit facility by the Exhibitor Move-Out deadline, please have all carriers check in by Tuesday, August 31, 2021 at 4:00 PM. Drivers not checked in by this time will risk the possibility of their shipments going out on the house carrier at the exhibitor’s expense. Be sure your carrier knows the company name and booth number when making arrangements for shipping your exhibit materials at the close of the show.
