Definition of Groupage Transportation
Groupage or groupage transport is the way to manage the cargo by grouping it in the same container and ship it to different destinations within a similar route. It is a widely used distribution system in road transport that saves costs and reduces pollution.
Groupage transport is cargo of any volume that is shipped together with other goods in the same truck.
Unless the goods are particularly dangerous or perishable, virtually any type of cargo can be shipped by this method of transport. At Transvolando, we help our clients save on their domestic and international transportation by using this type of service. Our experts analyze your needs and the characteristics of your goods, optimize the shipping routes and thus achieve cost savings. Of course, this does not affect the fact that we deliver the goods to their destination according to the agreed deadlines.
Easily transport multiple items in one shipment, including palettes, packages, machinery, and more! We can accommodate almost any cargo except hazardous materials. It must be taken into account that a transport with these characteristics is recommended when the load does not exceed 10 meters, or in other words, about 24 European pallets or 20 American pallets. If your merchandise is larger, you will have to use our full load service.
Its main advantages are twofold: on the one hand, savings, since by renting only part of the truck, the cost of the service is shared among all the other companies that carry cargo in the vehicle. In other words, we use the vehicle efficiently, always ensuring the safety of the transported goods to save on shipments, as you only pay for the occupied volume.
The other major advantage has to do with the environment, as the truck’s capacity is supplemented with different loads for the same trip, considerably reducing CO2 emissions. With these two major advantages on the table, it’s not surprising that consolidated cargo management is one of the most sought-after services at Transvolando. Customers of all types, from small retailers to multinational manufacturers and importers choose us.
The punctuality and savings in route times are considerable since it manages the merchandise of several companies within the same route. This also reduces pollution.
