Nowadays many businesses are struggling with moving cargo safely and efficiently while meeting the deadlines in a time of tightened capacity.
Luckily, cargo consolidation besides being one of the most promising option for businesses that want fast and convenient delivery, turns out to be one of the most efficient transport cost optimization solution.
As you can assume, cargo consolidation brings numerous benefits for businesses.
So, let’s take a read on what you can expect to enjoy by choosing a cargo consolidation service!
What is Cargo Consolidation?
Cargo consolidation is a straight-forward concept, it combines small shipments from multiple shippers into a large container for delivery.
The cargo consolidation service generally includes:
- Cargo transportation to the stuffing point
- Stuffing of cargo in container
- Custom process of shipping documents
- Cargo re-packing if necessary for delivery
Did you know that cargo consolidation has become the most popular and at the same cost-effective way of transportation, most commonly applied in international export?
Yes, that’s right and on top of that cargo consolidation has become a great transport cost optimization tool for many businesses.
The consolidation service that we are offering at Deni Internacional includes the following benefits:
- Competitive freight rates
- Competitive insurance premiums
- Reduced packing costs
- Reduced risk
Controlled Cost Transportation Structure
One of the most important benefits that you will get from cargo consolidation is cost effectiveness.
In addition to helping you in combining your small shipments cargo consolidation helps you with transport cost optimization too.
Cargo consolidation enables you to:
- Buy from separate suppliers or locations
- Get your products sent to a consolidation or warehouse
- Get all products shipped together at any time
Transport cost optimization starts at the moment when you choose to order from suppliers who wouldn’t normally sell minimum quantities. To put it differently, the chance to make smaller orders and do it more frequently means that your business will have more cash flow to work with.
Flexible and Tailored Service For Transport Cost Optimization
Cargo consolidation has gained popularity not only by being a great transport cost optimization tool but also by providing greater transportation, timeline and inventory flexibility for your business.
By choosing a tailored cargo consolidation service you will get to enjoy:
- Faster transit times
- Less congestion at loading docks
- Fewer, but stronger carrier relationships
- Less product handling
- Reduced accessorial charges at consignees
- Reduced fuel and emissions
- More control over due dates and production schedules
- Reduced chance of damages
Transport cost optimization uses a model to reduce the handling of the product in the process of handling the product as the freight moves from shipper to consolidation center.
In other words, cargo consolidation gets the freight to the final destination with fewer touchpoints, which is equal to less chances of damage.
