Freeman Materials Handling

Freeman can take care of all your material handling needs.

Material handling includes unloading your exhibit material, in advance at the warehouse address, delivering to the booth, the handling of empty containers to and from storage, and removing of material from the booth for reloading onto outbound carrier. It should not be consumed with the cost to transport your exhibit to material to and from the convention or event. You have two options for shipping your advance freight- either to the warehouse or directly to the show site. Rates are billed per pound based on 100lb increments. Freeman also offers a materials handling calculator on their website so you can have an idea of how much you might expect to be charged onsite.
