Consolidation is a method of transporting goods when a client’s order cannot fill a container for one shipment, therefore it needs to be shared with other clients. As such, the company will combine the parcels of all clients, categorize, arrange them and pack them into one single container after (LCL shipments). The container will then be shipped to the destination.
LCL was created to save the cost of clients since air freight is quite expensive, and there is no need to use the whole container. LCL consolidation service has some advantages:
- Lower cost compared to full container load FCL
- Customs procedures are simple and fast
- Forwarder may gain regular clients and receive significant discount
