At the moment, ENHS does not accept inventory shipment on behalf of vendors for liability purposes. We suggest that you ship your inventory to the address where you will be staying at and schedule the shipment to arrive at the same time that you plan to arrive in the city or a day or so after your arrive…depending on when you choose to arrive.
