Sea freight consolidated shipments are the most economic form of transportation by which goods are moved between countries in the international transport process.
With the use of containerization for packing and shipping for export or import cargo it has greatly increased the volumes of cargo moved by sea freight whilst greatly improving the speed of transit and the safety of cargo deliveries.
When your overall cargo volumes does not meet our full container requirements you may use our consolidation shipment freight service.
We can offer you a huge cost saving by consolidating your cargo into our regular consolidation service. We will combine your cargo with other shipping consignments headed for the same destination.
Why should I use consolidated shipping?
Many shippers believe this is the most important benefit of consolidation. If you only use half or two-thirds of a container, you will typically still have to pay for the entire space.
Consolidation allows you to combine multiple consignments that are traveling to the same discharge port into one consolidated shipment, while you are only paying for the space that you use.
Reduced damage risk:
Even with all the advancements in shipping, damaged is still a potential issue. However consolidated shipping uses a method that not only is more cost efficient, but also considerably reduces the on-again, off-again handling of the cargo, as freight only has to travel between the shipper, consolidation centre, and receiver/consignee.
With less handling, the risk of damaged goods is significantly lowered.
Consolidation is a cost-effective solution for any smaller shipments as you only pay only for the container space used.
What are the disadvantages ?
One major disadvantage when using a consolidation service is your sea or air freight may need to wait until sufficient cargo volumes are received to fill the consolidated containers before the shipment is expedited.
However when using the WORLDWIDE consolidation services we are able to guarantee more frequent air or sea sailings on all major routes.
