How much does consolidated freight cost?

Combining LTL freight into one container or trailer means cargo travels at the cost of the mode that carries it - intermodal or truckload - plus final mile delivery. Weight, dimensions and additional fees influence overall cost, but you can expect savings between 10 to 50%.

What does consolidated shipping mean?

Consolidated freight shipping is a logistics strategy where a shipper combines multiple smaller shipments within a particular geographic area into a single container or trailer, rather than shipping them piecemeal via LTL. They travel together to a destination point where the contents are broken down and final-mile delivered.

What is pool consolidation?

Pool consolidation occurs at the beginning of the freight pool process, where multiple orders from the same shipper or distributor - or loads from multiple nearby companies - are combined. Pool distribution companies handle the end portion, when the shipment is removed from the container or truck and delivered to its final destination.
