Mercury’s broad network allows us to meet the tightest of deadlines, or when time isn’t of the essence, find the most cost-efficient pricing. Our trade show specialist team helps you make the right decisions and find the right solutions to meet your specific trade show requirements.
How many pieces are you shipping?
What are their sizes and weights?
What are the pickup and delivery times?
Will you be taking out insurance?
Will you be needing crating, strapping or palletizing?
Are there any other special requirements that you’ll be looking for?
Please provide the trade show Material Handling Agreement.
Trade show shipments are not limited just to an exhibit booth, but may include the following:
Instruments or medical devices
Robotics and computer hardware
Hard shell, black protective cases
Marketing materials and giveaways
When shipping overseas, a carnet may be your most cost-effective solution to reduce your duties and tax costs because the material is only temporarily imported. Please note that carnets have time limits depending on the country, so it’s important to send your material back to the US before expiration.
Mercury will put together the carnet on your behalf, providing the carnet pricing and the alternative pricing to not using a carnet. Our team will also advise of the time limit of the carnet and any other regulations for that specific country.

Tradeshow Material Handling Agreement
Mercury has helped us save labor costs and drive operational efficiencies as we scale our at-home COVID testing business.
Incredible customer service and highly responsive. I have never had a better team helping to ensure our critical materials make it exactly where we need them, internationally, in such a timely manner.
Mercury saves us money and is helpful in getting insight when major couriers' own tracking information does not provide answers. We also love our pick-up handler!
Arranging the shipment was easy and it was great to talk to the same people who understood my shipping requirements. The shipment was quickly delivered to Denmark and arrived frozen.
Prompt service and fair pricing.
Anytime a package is late or cannot be delivered, Mercury contacts me and they will reroute a package if the address was incorrect. I don’t get that from anyone else.
Incredible customer service - always going above and beyond to help my team succeed. We really appreciate your partnership in all things shipping!
