Cargo Consolidation

Consolidation Services

Cargo Consolidation or consolidation services refer to a cargo shipping method in which a logistics company to combine several individual consignments to make up one shipment. This arrangement allows the goods to be shipped at cheaper rates and offers greater security.

At destination, the consolidated shipment is separated back into the original individual consignments for delivery to their respective consignees.

If you are in the market for shipping consolidation services, International 3PL has the right solutions. When we consolidate (or repack) your parcels, we take the content of the packages and put it in a single box that is as small and safe as possible.

cargo consolidation

In general, it makes sense to have the goods delivered to your international destination in a box that is as small as possible.

In the USA, freight charges are reasonable. Therefore, goods are shipped in boxes that are sometimes twice or three times bigger than the content they carry inside.

When it comes to international shipments, however, the shipping charges are calculated by the weight, actual or dimensional – whichever is greater (the chargeable weight).
For example: the actual weight of a package is 15KG and the dimensional weight is 25KG the chargeable weight will be 25KG. To learn more about how the dimensional weight is calculated.

In a nutshell: The smaller the box, the closer the actual weight is to the dimensional weight and the cheaper the shipping charges will be.

Why Cargo Consolidation Saves You Money:

  • Carriers charge more for the first pound or kilo. When you ship packages separately, you will pay for this fee twice.
  • Websites use large boxes with lots of packaging material.
  • We carefully re-package your items, removing the extra packaging material so your box is as small and light as possible.
  • Even if the website ships to your country, we still save you money when you are buying from multiple stores.

 

Shipping Consolidation Services in a nutshell

When we see your repack request, we retrieve your packages and double-check that we have the correct ones.

All outside boxes are removed, we only keep the retail packaging. That might significantly lower the postage (package becomes smaller and lighter).

After this, we put the goods in a box that is as small as possible. All Packages are tagged and prepared for shipment. We make it easy.

Shipping Consolidations Services companies are becoming more in demand used by small and large companies to ship packages internationally.

parcel shipping

Parcel Shipping

Why Consider Parcel Shipping ?

Recently Many companies have adopted parcel shipping as a method of delivery of their products rather than using freight shipping via LTL.

Quantity

Can your company combine a group of similar packages and ship them to distribution centers where they can be broken down and delivered as individual parcel shipments? Or do you have a limited amount of shipments that leave your facility on a weekly or daily basis?

Accessibility

Another item that needs to be taken into consideration is accessibility. Parcel carriers will offer direct door-to-door delivery that LTL carriers frequently cannot. Is your recipient located on the 13th floor of an office building with no service elevator? If so, you may see an extra fee on your carrier invoice to accommodate your physical and operational needs.  Parcel carriers, however, generally have a more flexible schedule and can offer services such as Saturday express and overnight delivery. Parcel carriers are also more likely to deliver to residential addresses, whereas LTL carriers generally prefer to ship to loading docks.

Reliability

In most cases, parcel carriers have the capability of guaranteeing delivery by a certain time and day. Many companies and individuals find this useful for time sensitive documents such as bid proposals and contracts. When you want items on site at a specific time and location, parcel carriers have the direct advantage to meet your needs.  Their reliability, over time, has proven to be more consistent compared to the LTL industry.

Tracking

Parcel carriers instituted online shipment tracking, many LTL carriers adopting it later. Both types of carriers offer services that enable users to track shipments online, including an estimated time of arrival and live updates throughout the delivery process. Many shippers provide instant proof of delivery and signature confirmation.

 

Cost

Ultimately, your shipping strategy should be the one that best meets the needs of your company and customers. Even the best product in the world will lose favor with your customers if it is not delivered safely and on time. For overall customer service, parcel carriers typically have the flexibility that meets customers’ needs, but LTL carriers are not far behind. Regardless of your selected service type, be sure to consider the advantages and disadvantages of each option, and their suitability to your current and future business objectives.

Solar Energy in Bolivia

Bolivia Solar Energy Investments

The world’s largest vertically integrated photovoltaic manufacturer, has supplied over 5 megawatts of solar panels for Bolivia’s first solar power plant. The plant is expected to deliver clean energy to over 49,000 people. Bolivia Solar Energy Investments continue to rise in order to provide a cleaner source of Energy.
Bolivia Solar Power Plants are expected to increase in number.

As Bolivia’s first and largest solar power plant, the 5 MW system is expected to deliver clean energy to more than 49,000 people. It occupies 15 hectares (Ha) of land near the remote city of Cobija in the state of Pando, which has relied on diesel power generation because it is not connected to Bolivia’s national utility grid. EGSA (Empresa Electrica de Guaracachi S.A), a subsidiary of ENDE (Empresa Nacional de Electricidad), carried out preliminary studies and basic engineering for the project.

The new solar power system incorporates both battery storage and diesel generation to ensure continuous access to electricity. It is expected to generate 7,500 megawatt-hours (MWh) of clean power each year, meeting approximately 50% of regional demand. The power plant will offset more than 1.9 million liters of diesel fuel, which will result in significant energy cost savings for the Bolivian government.
