Reducing Material Handling Costs SAVE $331.92 Discount Price Deadline Date April 10th Method of payment must accompany your order GPX Charlotte 2023 Charlotte Convention Center Charlotte, NC April 27 - 28, 2023 51 51 AGS 01/11/13 - 001 AGS Expo Services • 4561 SW 34th Street • Orlando, FL 32811 Phone: 407.292.0025 • Fax: 407.292.4414 Email: Order Online: REDUCING MATERIAL HANDLING COSTS To reduce material handling costs related to labor, we recommend sending your goods all together in one shipment. For each 100 lbs. or fraction thereof per shipment, AGS sets a graduated flat rate with a 200 lb. minimum. It is important to carefully read the Material Handling section of this Exhibitor Service Manual. This section also outlines the overtime and forced freight policies. TIPS FOR SENDING TO: THE ADVANCE WAREHOUSE • When using the advance warehouse, all shipments must arrive by the predetermined date and times. This information can be found on the Material Handling Order Form or in the Show Information section of this Exhibitor Service Manual. • The advance shipment deadline date is always one week prior to the first day of exhibitor move-in. • Avoid sending shipments after the advance warehouse deadline date. Though packages will be accepted, your account will be charged an off-target fee and a separate delivery charge may be incurred. • Avoid sending small packages to the advanced warehouse. Each separate shipment is charged a 200 lb. minimum at the Advanced Material Handling Rate regardless of size or weight. Observing this can cut your costs drastically. THE SHOW SITE • When sending shipments direct to show site, ensure that each package has its packing slip or shipping bill indicating the number of pieces and weight. To ensure the accuracy of material handling charges, AGS may weigh shipments as they arrive and compare the results to the Bill of Lading. A weight ticket will be attached to the receiving paperwork for any shipments that are adjusted. On-site weighing may be accepted as actual weight or shipments may be refused without a certified weight ticket. In such cases where on-site weighing is necessary, you may be assessed a fee for this service. • Items that arrive before the scheduled move-in times or during the show will be assessed an off-target fee or may fail to be accepted. • Many times shipments arrive piecemeal and require sorting. To avoid sorting fees related to bulk consignment carriers, try to send shipments together and avoid package carriers such as FedEx and UPS Package. Here are some common mistakes that can result in higher material handling charges: • Multiple small shipments arriving separately - There is a 200 pound minimum per shipment over 30 lbs. (On-site only) • Missing your target date - If there is no way to avoid missing your target date, contact AGS. • No certified weight ticket accompanying your shipments. EXAMPLE OF SAVINGS Received - Multiple Shipments 51 lbs. charged @ $82.98 per cwt. 200 lbs. min. = $165.96 43 lbs. charged @ $82.98 per cwt. 200 lbs. min. = $165.96 64 lbs. charged @ $82.98 per cwt. 200 lbs. min. = $165.96 TOTAL =$497.88 Received - Single Shipment (3 pcs) 158 lbs. charged @ $82.98 per cwt. 200 lbs. min. = $165.96 TOTAL =$165.96
