Groupage involves combining cargo from more than one exporter or seller, or to more than one receiver for them to be shipped together in a single shipping container. It is a great saving opportunity for those who ship smaller quantities and volumes.

Groupage is also known as LCL (Less than Container Load). Transporting a shipment with other goods in the container is referred to as LCL, meaning that multiple LCL shipments with different Bills of Lading and different owners can be loaded in a single container. Any space used in the container is subject to a charge depending on the amount of space being utilised in the container.

Our Groupage services cover your worldwide requirements, with full logistical expertise in the market guaranteeing the most efficient and cost-effective tailor-made solutions you need. We collect your goods and distribute by sea (container) or road (trailer) in accordance with requirements.

On arrival, the container is unloaded, and each individual shipment may be claimed by its appropriate owner (also called consolidation).
