Making the Smart Choice When Searching for the Right Tradeshow Shipper
by Cynthia Porter, Exhibit City News
The January/February issue of Exhibit City News features an article titled “Transportation: Tackling the Search for Trade show Shipping,” (pp. 30-33) in its Jan. 30, 2019 issue featuring the services of the YRC Freight Exhibit Services Team.
“Shipping to and from trade shows can be very complex or can be simplified for exhibitors by making the right choices,” clarifies Jason Olinger, YRC Freight Director of Exhibit Sales and Operations (East Coast). “It’s probably the most complicated kind of shipping for a novice shipper, but even for a seasoned veteran, it’s critical that the exhibitor utilize someone that understands the rules of engagement for trade shows and specializes in them.”
