Trade show shipping is a Hot Freight specialty — whether it’s LTL shipping, truckload shipping, crossborder LTL shipping or expedited shipping to and from your next trade show.

Your trade show carrier with a difference

What’s the Hot Freight difference when it comes to trade show shipping?  We are small enough to keep a special eye on your trade show shipment and listen to your specific needs but we have the personnel on staff who have many years of trade show logistics experience with very large trade show management companies.  Many exhibitors have come to associate trade show shipping with common carriers who offer per hundred weight rating with no discount.  Hot Freight will work with you to understand your trade show shipping requirements and pass along our usual attractive rates.

Hot Freight has a solid track record in the trade show shipping business.  We offer advance warehouse services, move-in, move-out and professional on-site representation to both exhibitors and show management.  As part of our trade show transportation services we act as an advance warehouse for show managers who need to offer the convenience of a pre-show receiving and shipping address for exhibit shipments.  Hot Freight will ship and receive exhibitor’s LTL, truckload, expedited and trade show shipments.  Compare Hot Freight’s rates on shipments to and from trade shows — we offer per skid or crate rates instead of the traditional undiscounted common carrier per hundred weight rates.  Whether your trade show shipping requirements are within Canada or your needs are crossborder between Canada and United States, Hot Freight’s trade show transportation services are the answer.

For many years, Hot Freight has been a respected name in trade show shipping and trucking.  Our personnel have an excellent track record and are well known to trade show managers.  We understand the urgency of the trade show transportation business and have the connections to make sure your trade show shipment is on site on time.

We can work with you and use our warehouse to set up your trade show booth for a “dry run”.  Trouble shooting and practicing set up and tear down should be done prior to attending a trade show.  Here are some recent pictures of a trade show booth “rehearsal” in our warehouse.
