Exhibit Cases for Shipping

June 25th, 2008 by Trade Show Help --> · 2 Comments

Our company is rapidly growing, so we go to multiple trade shows each year and our exhibit cases are routinely thrown around by the teamsters of the show.

At the last trade show, we discovered that the latches were broken once it arrived to the show site from the advanced warehouse and some of the stuff inside was not in the best condition either.

What kind of cases are recommended to protect our exhibits against teamsters with fork lifts who just don’t care about the fragile cargo on the inside?

    Molded heavy duty polyethylene case selections with recessed latches are a must for serious exhibitors who require more than the common pallet and traditional crate packaging for booth components. You will definitely want to take a look at the guaranteed-for-life, SKB & Pelican cases and the rugged Platt cases. All can be customized with foam cushioning to keep your stuff from from getting all shook up during drayage. Caseman ( carries a stock line of round graphics cases, jumbo cases, panel display shipping cases, plasma & LCD cases, freight cases, lift cases and wheeled tradeshow cases.

    Kate, I am the business Development Manager at Tradetec Skyline and would like to see if we can help you with your challenge.

    As far as handling goes, that won’t change, the only way to combat this is to look at durable hard coated polyurethane type cases, with reinforced steel locks. Depending on your brand it might be easier to go direct to the manufacurer, if you think it is a Skyline, we could help with that too.

    Visit our website at Tradetec Skyline Exhibits and let me know if you have any questions.
