A large event organiser who organise two bridal exhibitions and require transport of their long term storage to and from the exhibition in Harrogate & London. They also require collections from a local address for each exhibition and a stock control system for goods going to and coming from each exhibition.
Issues/Challenges for Client
It is difficult for the organisers to keep tabs on every aspect of their exhibition so we are here to look after all their goods in storage and act as a holding area weeks before, and after, each exhibition, for their exhibitors to send stock to.
As the show gets closer, many suppliers send their samples for a catwalk and need somewhere to store everything before the show opens. Their offices are simply not big enough for such volumes.
Throughout the year, they also need somewhere to store their many items, safely and securely and know that if they need access to anything, they can get to it without any problems
To put our client at ease, we offer long term, accessible storage. We itemise everything when loading the storage containers and pallets so we both know exactly where their items are located. If ever they need access, we can offer this, usually within 24hrs.
To save any headaches for our client, or their customers, we take delivery of sample garments and accessories prior to the event to make sure they can arrive on time to the required stand at the exhibition centre. Many centres only allow for deliveries one day prior to the exhibition opening, so we make sure goods have a safe delivery area weeks before the event opens.
We also offer our client a stock control system for their samples arriving ahead of the catwalk. They send a list of expected goods and we can alert our client if any do not arrive. Arrivals are kept together and clearly marked to make it obvious for all staff members what is happening.
It can be difficult to fix a specific delivery date for goods to be delivered to venues, especially with such a quick turnaround. We receive goods for the client and their customers before the exhibition and also store them after the exhibition closes.
By looking after our client in this way, we can offer a certainty that goods will arrive on time, every time. We put the client’s mind at ease over an already stressful period, along with year round support whenever they have goods arriving or needs access to their stored goods.
Whilst we are looking after their storage and delivery, this means the client can cut admin time and cut their costs down by not having to worry when or if a delivery has arrived on time as we can liaise with delivery companies
