Trade shows attract people from all over the world to participate, bringing people with similar interests and goals together. These events require timeliness and professionalism to prepare and set up on time. Latin American Cargo (LAC) has been working closely with companies deeply invested in a variety of trade shows across North and Latin America. Because of this they have built their company around several key ideas to help those wishing to participate in one of the many trade shows that happen every year.

As participation in Trade Shows rise, companies are looking at a larger target audience and more potential clients and customers. One of the largest Automotive trade shows, The Paace Automechanika Mexico, is set for the 13th, 14th and 15th of July this year. It hosts over 500 Exhibitors and usually brings over 30,000 visitors from all over the world. This is just one of many trade show opportunities available within Latin America for companies to use throughout the summer, with Brazil among others hosting many different shows as well.

What Latin American Cargo uses most to their advantage to help their partners succeed in trade shows is Specialization.

Knowing the importance of trade shows LAC takes care to make sure the goods being shipped are handled with care and respect.

Another aspect that is important for those shipping goods to or from Latin America for trade shows is insurance. No matter how much diligence and care is given to a shipment, sometimes cargo can be damaged in transit. In cases like this it is important to have insurance. This is especially true when shipping to Mexico because the cargo liability offered in the Mexican territory is very minimal. As an example, the Mexican carrier`s maximum liability per each 1000 kilos transported is the equivalent to the minimum salary paid for fifteen days of work in Mexico. This formula begins to be applied to shipments weighing 200 kilos and more. For shipments weighing less than 200 kilos the maximum liability is the equivalent to the minimum salary paid for four days of work in Mexico.
