Consolidation & Deconsolidation Shipment Handling
Consolidation is a method of combining a number of smaller shipments together and shipping it out in the form of a larger shipment. On the other hand, deconsolidation is the process of breaking down a single shipment into several smaller shipments and processing those shipments for immediate delivery.
With our experienced consolidation teams, we build detailed consolidated loads based on what inventory is needed at each customer's receiving location. We ship product to one of our strategically located facilities where it is inventoried and consolidated. By collaborating with our customers and their suppliers, our consolidators can arrange shipments so they can be efficiently combined into full truckloads and reduce the number of partial loads on the road and thereby lower the cost per unit by optimizing freight cost.
Contrarily, our consolidators know that successful deconsolidation means getting product organized into manageable pieces so it can get to the marketplace as quickly as possible. We have the experience and the flexibility to break down a container into individual orders to whatever shipping quantity units are needed according to our customer's distribution.
