Transportation of groupage cargo is the process of delivering goods that are assembled from several small shipments from different senders, but have the same delivery direction and recipient. Such cargo can be delivered in one container or on one vehicle, which reduces delivery time and cost compared to individual shipments.
Transportation of groupage cargo can be carried out by various modes of transport, such as sea, air, rail and road transport. Typically, consolidated cargo is collected at terminals or warehouses, where it is combined into one container or vehicle and then transported to its destination.
One of the main advantages of transporting consolidated cargo is saving time and money. By combining several small cargoes into one, the number of transportations is reduced and, accordingly, the time and cost of delivery are reduced. In addition, transportation of consolidated cargo can be more flexible and adaptive, as it allows you to quickly respond to changes in the volume and direction of cargo.
Transportation of groupage cargo has its own characteristics that must be taken into account for the successful organization and conduct of the transportation process. Some of the main features of groupage cargo transportation include:
Diversity of cargo types: Consolidated cargo can include different types of goods that require varying degrees of care and protection during transport. This may require the use of special packaging materials and techniques to ensure the safety of the cargo.
Customs restrictions: Transportation of groupage cargo may be subject to customs restrictions, which may slow down or stop the transportation process. Cargo may be detained at customs or additional documents and permits may be required to transport it.
