Freight consolidation is when a shipper combines multiple small shipments from a particular region and transports them as one. The loads are then broken down again and hauled to their specific destination. Many shippers take advantage of freight consolidation to ship their cargo to different customers within the same destination, reducing transportation's ultimate cost.
How Does Freight Consolidation Reduce Shipping Costs?
There are various ways through which freight consolidation reduces freight shipping costs. For instance, shippers using Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipping can combine their freight with others hauling to a similar destination. As such, you will not have to pay for the entire trailer (including the empty space), but only for the particular space your cargo takes on the container, which saves you the shipping costs.
Combining cargo from different suppliers also helps you enjoy bulk rates because your product is finally enough to fill an entire truck. This also means more saving chances for your customers and facilitates more frequent small order shipment, which also means more cash for your business. At Heavy Equipment Transport, providing quality services to our clients at cost-effective prices has enhanced a better relationship with them, helping us create a powerful customer base.
Benefits of Freight Consolidation

At Heavy Equipment Transportation, freight consolidation has significantly enhanced the shipping process, making the process simple for us and our customers.
Alleviate Damages - There will be fewer hands to handle your freight and fewer trucks for the shipping process, thereby reducing the space for errors.
