Multi-country Consolidation offers lower transportation costs and full visibility
APL Logistics’ global network of facilities allows us to perform buyer’s consolidation or regional distribution consolidation across borders and continents. For importers receiving small shipments from multiple locations throughout Asia and other global locations, we provide a practical, convenient service that considerably reduces ocean freight costs.
- Collect Less than Container Load (LCL) shipments from multiple vendors in multiple countries
- Arrange shipments from origin and consolidate them into Full Container Loads (FCL) at central hubs
Organize FCL shipments to final destination using a single bill of lading
Multi-country consolidation allows an appropriate product mix to be achieved for further distribution within the region.
Lower delivery expense – Multi-country consolidation loads are delivered intact, reducing the cost of customs and trucking
Less risk – Intact deliveries mean less risk of exposure and pilferages
Full visibility – All documentation managed by us and copied to you
