Clauses

Schenker shall not be liable for any delay, any failure in the performance of any services, any rate increase if and to the extent that such delay or failure or rate increase is caused by any event of force majeure, including but not limited to any Act of God, natural disaster, adverse weather conditions, disease, epidemic, plague, quarantine restrictions, war, terrorism, riot, civil commotion, strike, industrial action, trade or economic sanctions, or any other circumstances beyond its reasonable control.”

Logistics

The Organisers & Venue are doing everything they can to ensure that build up and breakdown runs as smoothly as possible for everyone onsite, but all Exhibitors, Contractors and Suppliers also have a responsibility for this. Below are some ideas that you should be considering:

Advanced Warehousing

Want to avoid the traffic queues and potentially save money? Then why not send your goods/stand building materials to the Official Logistics Provider two weeks before the show, who will then deliver them to your stand in time for when you arrive onsite. See section below for more details.

COVID-19

There are a number of measures you can take to aid capacity and help limit any unneccessary workers onsite during buildup.

  • All deliveries must be made directly to the official lifting contractor. You can either then collect these yourself or arrange for the lifting contractor to deliver to your stand. 
  • Consider methods to reduce frequency of deliveries.
  • Encourage drivers to stay in their vehicles where this does not compromise their safety and existing safe working practice.
  • Where possible and safe, having single workers load or unload vehicles.
  • Putting in place procedures to minimise person-to-person contact during deliveries
  • It is essential that all material and freight is kept within the build area and not in the aisles/foyers etc. Build materials/furniture/AV and freight may need to be scheduled for different arrival times to avoid crowding.

Delay Delivery of Furniture & Dressing Items

You don’t need your furniture on the first day of build so be considerate of others and plan your deliveries accordingly.  To avoid the risk of furniture and dressing items being turned away during the first few days of build, why not arrange for these items to be stored with the Official Logistics Provider until you are ready for them?  

Couriers

No one enjoys getting stuck in exhibition traffic and it is very easy for courier drivers to refuse to deliver your items.  Therefore contact the Official Logistics Provider who would be more than happy to manage this for you instead.  Give them a call to see how they can help ensure a smoother onsite experience for you and your team.

It should be capable of easy unpacking and repacking. For this reason it is advisable to use screws or clips for cases rather than nails.

‘ISPM15’ Phytosanitary Measures are not required in the UAE however any cases intended to be re-exported from

Abu Dhabi/ Dubai after WFES 2023 should be compliant to ensure that the onward consignment does not encounter any problems upon arrival at its destination.

For that reason, Schenker are not responsible for courier shipments until received at our on-site office regardless of whether they are addressed to us or not.

It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to check with Schenker to see if their packages have been received.
