Cargo consolidation is the process of sorting and accumulation of goods in the warehouse, collecting and forming cargoes sent by one route.
In general, we can say that consolidation and subsequent groupage cargo transport is a profitable and convenient way of transporting goods over long and not very long distances.
Based on the above-mentioned, we can highlight certain advantages of cargo consolidation:
- Sending all cargoes is accompanied by a single transport document
- Transportation of small-sized cargo is financially beneficial for both the carrier and the sender/recipient
- The cargo owner can significantly expand the range of goods due to the fact that they can be sent in small quantities at a time
