What is Consolidation?
The abbreviation «LTL» means «Less Than Load». This term means the transportation of small freight that occupies a portion of an entire trailer. Before the transportation they need to be consolidated on a logistics hub into one large consignment and sorted according to the direction of their delivery. This large consignment is transported by one vehicle. It can be a railway rolling stock, an all-cargo aircraft, a load carrier vehicle, or a sea craft. If needed, a multimodal scheme is used.
Consolidated cargo transportation is beneficial for retail companies that recently entered the market and need to ascertain demand for products, as well as reduce transportation costs. Middle-sized companies use it to increase their income, and a large business needs it as well: for grabbing new export markets.
