As the UK prepares for the easing of lockdown measures and for businesses to make their re-entry to our everyday lives, many industries are looking toward innovative and timely solutions that can ensure a successful yet safe consumer experience. Of course, this is no easy task and for some could seem impossible, however, mobile events and exhibitions could be the saving grace they need.
In hosting such events, businesses may take control of an open space and adhere to the advised distancing measures – both assuring their employees and their consumers as well as restoring confidence in the brand name. Now, whilst this offers a plethora of benefits, it’s important to reflect that these events require mass amounts of organisation and preparation – such as arranging guest speakers, attendance control and demonstration platforms to name but a few.
So, what you won’t want to worry about amidst this planning is if your goods and set-up equipment will arrive at it’s designated time. This is exactly why UK hauliers, like Forest Freight, offer tailored exhibition and events logistics solutions that can provide you with the efficiency and assurance you deserve.
Of course, you may consider smaller courier services or internal transportation options, but it’s likely that they will be unable to confidently offer the same services as a more experienced transportation company – especially when it comes to large-scale events. If you’re still unsure, take a look at the advantages of opting for an external haulier.
Reliability and capacity
Whilst UK courier services have worked tirelessly to provide households and businesses with small-scale transportation solutions, it is unlikely that they will have the capacity to carry out larger consignments. Furthermore, if they are able to deliver your goods, they may be constricted by their daily workflow – so your goods could fall victim to a loss or accidental mistake.
Additionally, if your event requires larger, bulky equipment or goods, it will need an expert events logistics team and the necessary tools to transport it safely to the designated destination. Thus, hiring a company that is well-experienced in such procedures can give you peace of mind that the job will be completed with ease.
Whilst having your goods delivered safely and in one piece is essential, it won’t matter if it’s at the wrong time. When planning your event, it’s vital that your transportation team can adhere to the necessary deadlines – whether it’s next week or tomorrow!
In this instance, it’s beneficial to employ a team that provides transparent and reliable communication avenues – such as real-time tracking technology. In doing so, your event leaders can keep track of the delivery process and ensure that everything runs smoothly.
On-site expert advice
Once your goods or equipment arrive, you’re likely to feel a surge of relief but be mindful that the vehicle still needs unloading and the equipment must be placed in the correct space. So, having an expert exhibition logistics specialist will provide your team with the guidance needed to safely set up your event and avoid any accidents or injury – all whilst saving time!
Again, whilst smaller courier services may be advantageous in some aspects, they are unlikely to provide storage solutions – which may be vital for your event. If you require storage prior to the event whilst accumulating the needed equipment or goods or if you need storage following the event to give your team and yourself a celebratory break, then you’ll need a transportation team that can facilitate just that!
