Shipment consolidation is exactly what it sounds like, the grouping together of multiple deliveries into one. As with anything else in business, it’s done on account of money – saving money, to be precise. For example, let’s say a facility in Ho Chi Minh City has to ship out so many widgets, all heading points north, west, and south.
In each of those regions are any number of cities – Ha Noi, Da Nang… Now the Ho Chi Minh facility can send six separate packages, with six separate tracking numbers and separate sets of paperwork along with whatever else is necessary – or it can group, or consolidate, the shipments into three packages, each bound for a regional distribution hub that will then forward each one accordingly.
With our service, your solution for the small-retail shipments should move out soon. We contacted the supplier, factory, shipping, cargo tracking of customers and consolidation of customer demand. We update the booking situation, providing shipment schedule, notify of the location to ensure the goods are identified at each stage of the journey.
It’s an industry in itself, and is poised for even more growth in the coming years as the volume of international commercial transactions rises.
It’s shipment consolidation, and all the tasks associated with it, from merge-in-transit services to cross-docking, everything with the ultimate goal of reducing overhead and increasing operational efficiency.
