LCL (Less Container Load) - a term used in international sea freight, is used when transporting goods of different customers in one direction on one vehicle, when each customer's consignments have a smaller volume than is required to fill a whole container, this is the method of delivery we will consider.
If you need to transport a small cargo that cannot be sent by regular mail, and air transportation or transportation in a separate container is impossible due to the high cost, then groupage cargo is what you need... Groupage shipments allow us to reduce the cost of delivery of small-sized cargo, since we combine different parties into one container, which allows everyone to pay only for their own cargo and not overpay for the empty space in the container.
What should be the dimensions of the cargo in order for it to be accepted for collective shipment?
In accordance with the world standard, if the volume of transportation does not exceed half the volume of the container (for example, a standard 20 'container has a volume of 33,2 m3), combined transport applies. However, from practice we can say that groupage cargo is sent with a volume of more than 10 m3 unprofitable.
The first link in the chain of groupage cargo transportation is the consolidation of small consignments of several shippers at a consolidation warehouse, which serves as a starting point for the regular transportation of groupage cargo. The time of delivery of the cargo varies depending on the time for completing the batch and the route of transport.
We transport groupage cargo from any country in the world: China, Japan, Thailand, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam. India, Australia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, USA and Europe.
We contact you to clarify the missing information, then contact our agents in China, they pick up the cargo from the seller and send it to the consolidation warehouse, then the cargo is carefully formed, sent to the port of Vladivostok, customs clearance is carried out correctly and the delivery of goods to your warehouse by the transport company you choose ...
Point by point, the scheme for buying and receiving a small batch of goods should look something like this:
Search and purchase of goods from the seller
Transportation of goods from the seller's warehouses to the consignor's consolidation warehouse for batch picking
Cargo handling in the warehouse
Export customs clearance
Preparation of documents for transportation
