No. Shipping and Material Handling are not the same thing.
- Shipping is the transportation of your items from your location to the convention center. You are responsible for hiring a transportation company for shipping your materials.
- Material Handling is the action of receiving your shipment at the convention center and bringing it to your booth space. Freeman is the PGA Show's official contractor and will facilitate your material handling. There is a cost associated with this—called "drayage" and you will receive a drayage bill from Freeman in your booth.
Drayage is calculated based on the weight of your items and how they are shipped.
Crated or palletized items shipped to the Advanced Warehouse will be charged $68.80 per one-hundred pounds (CWT) with a two-hundred pound minimum.
Crated or palletized items shipped to the Show Site will be charged $56.85 per one-hundred pounds (CWT) with a two-hundred pound minimum.
