International Tradeshow Headaches?

 In Industry Insider, Trans-Border Global Freight Systems, Inc.

Understanding that foreign tradeshows operate differently than US tradeshows is the first step in bringing control to the process.


If you are exhibiting your company’s products at a tradeshow in the US, the logistics are consistent and easy to follow, especially when handled by Trans-Border!

The logistics involved in exhibiting your goods at an international tradeshow are much more complex and intimidating. There are more components to the process, and more parties involved. Every country has different import rules in place. Customs boundaries have to be crossed and the proper documentation has to be in place. Oh, and if some of your items are returning to the US – then that’s an entirely different headache altogether.  There is a high degree of stress and anxiety when it comes to logistics – we understand it.

Trans-Border can handle the logistics of your international tradeshows with the highest level of precision and skill. We make the process easier because we ask the right questions up front – therefore saving a lot of time and aggravation down the line. We factor in:

  • Values of the merchandise and Harmonized codes
  • What products are returning to the US – or being given away
  • What are the delivery deadlines overseas?
  • What are the port/airport arrival dates?
  • Is Trans-Border delivering your merchandise to the booth?
  • Is there a nominated broker involved?

Anyone can move cargo from A to B – but relying on a partner that understands the logistics process is critical. We take the time to understand your requirements and expectations. By doing this, we offer practical, honest solutions.  We want to be a part of your exhibitions success – and it all starts with the logistics process.
