Groupage Services in Surrey and Nationwide

Groupage services are an essential part of international trade and usually require the expertise of a freight forwarder to facilitate properly. Also known as consolidation, groupage refers to goods transported together from various suppliers to make one full load. It is common for smaller volumes of goods to be transported this way as it maximises space in shipping containers and vehicles, allowing costs between suppliers to be shared.

Successful groupage requires a ‘middle man’, such as a freight forwarder to assemble the shipment so similar goods can travel together and calculate how much space needs to be allocated for each supplier. The freight forwarder is also responsible for any damages sustained whilst the goods are under their supervision. We offer a bespoke groupage service for commercial customers throughout Surrey and beyond, which can help you save on costs longer term.

Groupage Transport

Suppliers need to provide information about the weight, dimensions, volume and type of product, as well as specify the loading and unloading locations. From these details, our team can find a suitable shipment to accommodate their goods. We also take care of all the documentation on your behalf, including commercial invoices, letters of credit, dangerous goods certificates and certificates of origin. 

Once the goods arrive at their destination point, they are separated and delivered to customers and distribution centres as swiftly as possible to keep the supply chain moving.
