WHAT IS CONSOLIDATED FREIGHT?

 

Consolidated freight is when several small shipments from multiple suppliers are bundled and shipped together in one big shipment. By combining  their internationally-bound freight with other shipments, shippers can leverage the buying power of other shippers to tap into lower rates offered by carriers, which can lead to locking in future discounted rates.

OCEANAIR automatically consolidates your freight with other shipments that are moving along the same lane. Once the shipment arrives at the destination port, the cargo is deconsolidated into smaller shipments for delivery to final destination.
