Consolidated cargo clearance

Combined cargo is a consolidation of a large number of small consignments of goods from different customers into one large consignment.

The benefits of groupage cargo transportation are as follows:

  • The customer pays only for the area that their goods occupy, they do not have to pay for empty spaces in large containers or trucks;
  • Faster and more reliable than postal shipments, as the vehicle or cargo unit is fully loaded, which does not entail additional costs for the services of loaders and special equipment rental in case of additional loading;
  • The service is available to both legal entities and individuals.

Necessary documents

The main documents required for international shipments:

  • international consignment note (CMR) – the most important document, in fact it is the contract for the transportation of cargo;
  • Invoice, or bill of lading (contains basic information about the shipment);
  • The packing list (it indicates the packaging, its size, weight, etc.).

Documental clearance of consolidated shipments from Europe may require a Transit Declaration (T1) and an Export Declaration (EX1).

The list of documents may vary depending on the number of destinations, receiving and sending countries, type of delivery, method of their movement. All requirements are difficult to comply with for a newbie, so it is better to entrust the matter to professionals.
