Groupage freight is a shipping method that combines multiple smaller shipments into one full container. This technique of transport is appropriate for single pallets. Partial load shipment is often the less expensive choice for greater pallet quantities.
The groupage procedure works as follows: general cargo is collected from multiple shippers and integrated into a groupage cargo in the forwarding agent's warehouse. They are divided again in the respective warehouses after delivery.
Transport as groupage freight is a widely utilized method in logistics due to its cost-effectiveness, as mixing diverse consignments provides the advantage of being highly cost-effective.
