Upon arrival in the United Sates your shipment must go through customs. You may accompany your own shipment through customs or make arrangements with your shipper to receive the shipment and file the appropriate papers with U.S. customs. MMPI accepts no liability for inaccurate information provided to customs brokers or the U.S. Customs Service regarding contents and descriptions of shipments.
Important information: Since 2001, U.S. Customs has experienced unusual delays that may compromise the timely delivery of your shipment. Please plan your shipment accordingly.
Important: The shippers/brokers are provided for your convenience only. MMPI makes absolutely no representation or warranty as to the ability, quality, or expertise of any shipper, and disclaims any liability for any loss, cost, or damage to any shipment in the care, custody, or control of any shipper.
Exhibitors must maintain their own insurance, as customary insurance provided by shippers is usually inadequate. Please see your shipper for additional technical details.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS – CLEARING CUSTOMS
MMPI is available to receive freight directly at the trade show facility and will operate all drayage services in the trade show facility.
However, pursuant to all applicable laws, MMPI is not the importer or the appointed agent of any exhibitor or tenant of a trade show. Therefore, MMPI will not provide its federal tax identification number to act as the importer of record for US customs clearance of any international shipments for exhibitors/tenants of the trade shows it manages. If you require a FEN of a consignee we need to review your custom broker shipment paperwork for approval.
Each tenant or exhibitor must work directly with a customs broker to clear trade show shipments in the broker’s name or in the exhibitor’s name through a customs power of attorney form.
It is important to contact your shipper before arranging your shipment to ensure they will be providing the necessary information to clear customs You should keep all contact information, tracking numbers and inventory of each box handy. Your shipper should provide:
- All the necessary documents to clear customs in and out of the United States
- All the information and forms to process your fees for shipping and information for a carnet.
