Material Handling

Shepard Exposition Services has the responsibility of receiving and handling all exhibit materials and empty crates that come in via over the road carriers, rental companies or any for hire delivery service provider. It is Shepard’s responsibility to manage docks and schedule vehicles for the smooth and efficient move-in and move-out of the exhibition. Shepard will not be responsible, however, for any materials they do not handle.


Privately Owned Vehicles

A personally owned vehicle (POV) is classified as a company or company personnel’s owned vehicle which would include cars, vans, pick-up trucks and trailers up to 53’. Company personnel MAY unload their own equipment in specially designated areas if it can be rolled on a dolly or hand carried. POV’s may not utilize loading dock spaces. POV’s that need more than a dolly, must utilize the Shepard Exposition Services truck loaders. Material handling charges will apply.

All POV’s must check in at the marshaling yard to organize their delivery and pick up times. Vehicles must not be left unattended at the loading areas. Any unattended vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense.
