A Consolidated Shipment

A consolidated shipment is the result of combining multiple shipments from various shippers into one full container (multi-stop truckload) shipment.Consolidated shipping is ideal for someone that might only have a few pallets of freight or smaller shipments they need packaged and shipped in one container.

BENEFITS OF A CONSOLIDATED SHIPMENT

 

COST EFFICIENT 

Many shippers believe this is the most important benefit of consolidation. If you only use half or two-thirds of a trailer, you will typically still have to pay for the entire space. Consolidation allows you to combine multiple shipments that are traveling in the same vicinity into one full truckload shipment, while only paying for the space that their freight takes up.

REDUCED DAMAGE RISK

Even with all the advancements in freight shipping,damaged freight is still a lingering issue. Consolidated shipping uses a method thatnot only is more cost efficient, but also considerably reduces the on-again, off-again handling of the product, as freight only has to travel between the shipper, consolidation centre, and receiver/consignee. With fewer touch points, the risk of damaged goods is significantly low

IMPROVED QUALITY CONTROL

 Another benefit of consolidation is that it allows you to take control of your goods sooner. If for some reason quality control alerts you that there’s a problem with your shipment and it’s already been shipped, you would normally have to wait for the supplier to send a replacement, thus meaning that the timeline of delivering the product is now out of your hands. Consolidation allows you to perform quality control measures as soon as the product even reaches the warehouse, which in turn reduces the chances of losing time and control due to unforeseen problems with your order.

FASTER TRANSPORT

Consolidation offers fewer touch points hence faster networks and  the movement of goods becomes quicker.

 

BETTER CONTROL OVER SHIPMENT SCHEDULING

Lowering waiting time for the trucks and hence improves on fast delivery of consignment .
