With processing and distribution hubs in Liverpool, Belfast, and Singapore, we offer affordable and expedient consolidated freight services to clients around the globe.
What is Freight Consolidation?
Freight consolidation means packaging multiple items with a single destination together into one consignment. This allows senders of even small items to take advantage of bulk transportation rates, saving time and money.
Using a Less Than Container Load (LCL) model, we consolidate multiple individual consignments to fill containers. This is the most cost effective option for companies wishing only to send a number of pallets or boxes.
Whether you have a single pallet or multiple truckloads, we can help you. We will ship your freight to any location, and help you provide cost-effective, flexible shipping options to your clients.
Benefits of Freight Consolidation
In shipping, unused space can lead to unnecessary costs. Freight consolidation offers a solution by combining shipments for better rates and efficiency, resulting in time and money savings. TCB Group’s Consolidated Freight Services are all about cost savings. By consolidating shipments and sharing containers, you only pay for the space you use, reducing your shipping expenses.
Freight damage is a real concern in shipping. Consolidation minimises handling and increases security. Fewer handoffs reduce the risk of mishaps. Moreover, reliability improves as fewer transfers mean fewer chances for errors, leading to smoother deliveries and satisfied customers.
Improved Flexibility and Time Management
Freight consolidation offers flexibility, faster transit times, and reduced waiting periods for small shipments. Storing items at consolidation facilities ensures quick readiness, benefiting your scheduling and inventory management.
Better Visibility and Control
Consolidated shipping enhances visibility and control. Addressing issues upon warehouse arrival reduces delays and maintains control.
Using freight consolidation also gives you more control over your due dates and production schedules. You’ll be able to manage the entire distribution chain on your own or with a logistics partner.
Our Consolidated Shipping Services
All individual consignments are delivered to and processed in our global hubs in Liverpool, Belfast, or Singapore. This allows us to choose the exact service for each consignment.
They are then organised and packaged onto the appropriate container, with a full manifest to ensure proper oversight and safety of all consolidated shipments. We take pride in safely handling and securely loading all consolidated items, avoiding the risk of damage or loss.
Every consolidated shipment is sealed until it is opened by our receiving agent at the port of destination. These individual consignments are then unloaded and checked against the manifest prior to its final delivery.
