Consolidated cargo – this is the name of goods, the purpose of which is mainly to transport in consolidated lots. They are usually completed at the expense of piece units or tare volumes coming from different customers. In addition to this designation, groupage cargo is also called consolidated cargo. But the international transportation of groupage cargo in one direction and in one car is called groupage transportation. Due to groupage transportation, it is quite possible to well reduce the cost of delivering small-sized cargo.

The main mechanism for the delivery of groupage cargo and their main stages

When transporting groupage cargo, almost always the main stage – this is the consolidation of small consignments of cargo in a special warehouse of the transport company that transports such cargo. As a rule, consignments are always collected at the point of departure, where all cargoes undergo precise processing and remain until the most complete clearance of the groupage cargo set.

The delivery of groupage cargo itself in terms of duration always depends on the picking time of the batch used for transportation. In addition, the route along which the car travels is also involved. Almost always, groupage cargo is often transported by car. Now rail, air and water transport is already actively used for the transportation of prefabricated parties. We can definitely say that it will be more profitable for the sender to deliver small-sized cargo & nbsp; and the supply of all products in small quantities and small volumes.

Main advantages of groupage transportation

  • The transportation budget is significantly reduced. This method of transporting cargo is undoubtedly beneficial for small and medium-sized entrepreneurs, since you need to pay not for a full transport vehicle, but only for the space used in the cargo compartment. If the quantity and volume of cargo is small, the amount of transportation will also be much lower.
  • The presence of modern warehouses, which are equipped with professional loading and unloading equipment. Such warehouses always have everything necessary for long-term storage and then shipment to the final destination. If necessary, the goods can undergo special repacking and processing.
  • Strong simplification in the preparation of accompanying documents, both transport and customs documentation for any cargo. Significantly reduces the time required for cargo clearance and the strength of the one who orders the transportation.
  • Transportation thanks to powerful and modern trucks. Drivers always undergo special training and are often forwarders during the route. Transport companies that are engaged in the transportation of goods often worry about their reputation, so everyone does everything possible to ensure the complete safety and quality of such cargo transportation.
