Sea freight is a fundamental component of international trade & finding the most appropriate shipping solution is paramount to your successful import or export supply chain.
With the use of containerization for packing and shipping of your export or import cargo it has not only greatly increased the volumes of cargo moved by sea freight whilst also greatly improving the speed of transit and the safety of cargo deliveries.
However If overall cargo volumes are less than the full container requirements.We recommend a consolidation shipment service. As there are HUGE cost savings to be made.
The consolidated service, it is the most economic mode of international transportation. As your cargo is combined with other shipping consignments headed for the same destination.
Why use consolidated shipping?
Many shippers believe this is the most important benefit. If you only use half or two-thirds of a container, you pay for the entire space.
Consolidation allows you to combine multiple consignments whilst only paying for the space that is used.
Reduced damage risk:
Even with all the advancements in shipping, damaged is still a potential issue. However consolidated shipping reduces the on-again, off-again handling of the cargo, as freight only has to travel between the shipper, consolidation center, 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.
