Exhibiting at tradeshows and events across the globe requires a lot of planning and preparation to showcase your business. A large part of this involves the logistics of moving the stand and equipment from event to event in a time efficient and a cost effective manner.
This was the brief given to Peters & May Forwarding by their client Vizuality Studios and having successfully shipped the equipment via airfreight and road freight handling all customs and documentation from Jersey to the USA, USA to UK then from the airport to Birmingham & London we’re thrilled to have exceeded their expectations.
The Peters & May Group listened to their plans and were able to design a bespoke packing and shipment solution that would not only deliver on the client’s goals but also save the client on shipping costs moving forward.
One of the main reasons we are able to reduce Vizuality’s cost is by building custom re-usable cargo crates to support future movements. This allows the cargo to be consolidated making it a smaller consignment, in turn reducing chargeable weight, but also saves Vizuality having to pay to pack the equipment each time it is shipped. This method also ensures the cargo is safer during transit being appropriately packed.
During the KBB show in Birmingham where Vizuality were exhibiting, Jennifer Elstone, Sales Manager, and Charlotte Whittingham, Operations Consultant of Peters & May Forwarding, made a visit to make sure that Vizuality Studios were satisfied with the delivery of the stand equipment and confirm the future logistics plans to ship the kit from the UK to France, San Francisco, Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the next few months.
Fred Meyer of Vizuality said- “We’ve only been using Peters & May Forwarding for about three months but the service we’ve received has been way beyond what we could have expected.
Our shipment of over 2 tons of exhibition equipment to the US and France was a remarkable example of the logistic efficiency, not only to handle last minute weight changes in the shipment, but a short deadline, custom clearance, last minute change of plan and a prompt delivery and collection service on site.
A particular thank you to Charlotte, who is one of the most conscientious person we’ve had to deal with, no requests are an issue for Charlotte, last minute re-routing, additional items to ship, temporary storage… Whether it is the week-end, evening and even on Christmas Eve, we always get a prompt reply from Charlotte.
Peters & May really deliver logistics at its best and I would recommend them without reservation!”
Jennifer Elstone, Peters & May Forwarding, commented- “Visiting Vizuality Studios whilst they were exhibiting at the KBB show was a great way for the Forwarding team to see the product in action and understand the clients business further by meeting the people behind the innovative technology”
