SHIPPING, FREIGHT, AND MATERIAL HANDLING

SHIPPING AND FREIGHT

Detailed shipping instructions will be included in the Service Kit provided by GES. Do not ship any exhibit items to CSTA. In addition to standard material handling options, the 2017 conference will offer cartload service for exhibitors. This service will include freight received at the loading dock up to 200lbs. maximum that can fit safely on a four (4) wheel cart and delivered to the exhibitor's booth for a flat rate. Shipment must be delivered by privately owned vehicle (POV). Any shipment delivered by commercial carriers, pickup trucks, vans and all other vehicles are considered material handling under Union rules. There is one cartload allowed per booth. Pricing and complete details and restrictions for this service will be available in the Service Kit.

MATERIAL HANDLING

All work involved in the loading and unloading of all trucks, trailers, and common and contract carriers, as well as the handling of empty crates and the operation of material handling equipment, is under union jurisdiction. The union also has the jurisdiction of the unloading, uncrating, unskidding, leveling, painting, and assembly of machinery and equipment, as well as the reverse process. Full-time employees of exhibiting companies may ‘hand carry’ material provided they do not use material handling equipment, and it is limited to what one person in one trip is able to carry per booth. When exhibitors do choose to ‘hand carry’ material, they may not be permitted access to the loading dock/freight door areas. GES will not be responsible for any material we do not handle.

More information on union labor and jursidiction can be found on the Service Contractor page.
