Advance Warehousing or Show Site?

They usually start accepting shipments 30 days in advance up until about a week before the show move in.Read More

Shipping containers are traditionally known as a transport unit for moving products and materials from A to B. You will see them shipped by truck, rail, and sea. There are over seventeen million containers globally, and most of the world's international trade is transported in shipping containers. Here is where things get interesting; several million of these used shipping containers are abandoned due to the cost of sending them back to where they came from.
So what can we do with them now? In the past few years, there has been a movement of homeowners choosing to convert discarded freight containers into their very own "Tiny Home." From that starting point, shipping containers have pivoted easily into other residential, commercial, and industrial industries.Read More
