FAQs about groupage transport

Groupage transport, also known as consolidated freight, is a cost-effective logistics method that combines smaller shipments from various customers into a single load. This approach optimizes cargo space and shares transportation costs among multiple shippers.

Groupage transport is perfect for businesses with smaller shipments, diverse cargo types, or those looking to reduce transportation expenses. It's an ideal solution when you don't have enough goods to fill an entire truck or container.

Groupage transport reduces costs by allowing multiple shippers to share expenses. You will only pay for the space you utilize within the consolidated load. Therefore, groupage is a more cost-efficient option compared to dedicated or full-load shipments.

At DFDS we often optimize routes based on the unique requirements of each shipment, ensuring fixed and reliable delivery schedules, which can vary depending on factors like distance and destinations.
