Transportation of consolidated cargo is a highly demanded service. The main advantage is the low price for LCL shipment since cargo from several senders transported in one container at once. A freight container can be involved in a complex logistics chain, delivered by one type of transport, or be subject to multimodal transportation. In all cases, consolidated cargo owners pay only for a part of the container that their goods physically occupy.
LCL Transportation as an Alternative to FCL
The main logistic task is consolidation and fast delivery of goods going in one direction. In order to optimally fill a container or truck with goods, it is necessary to have information about the weight, dimensions and technical features of each item. Some types of dangerous or specific cargo can only be transported separately. These are safety standards requirements.
Turnkey delivery of cargo includes a full range of logistics and transportation services. From the warehouse of the sender to the destination - at each stage we are responsible for the shipment and perform all the accompanying functions:
- consolidation of cargo in the company's warehouse;
- customs clearance;
- delivery to the destination address.
Consolidation is performed at the logistics site, taking into account the characteristics of each batch and the choice of transportation route. If the movement involves a border crossing (import/export, transit), then customs clearance of LCL shipment is performed.
The next preparatory stage is the rigging work (laying, fastening) according to the scheme approved by our specialists. After that, the container is sealed and loaded onto the vessel.
