A key part of our pallet distribution service is load consolidation, cross-docking and Shared-user transport.
We provide a pallet distribution service for chilled ambient and frozen goods which provides our customers with a high quality service at a very attractive cost.
Load Consolidation offers several benefits to suppliers when creating and utilising consolidated loads. A key advantage to this type of transportation is reduced cost. Typically shippers will only use half or two-thirds of a trailer, yet will still be required to pay for the entire space. By combining smaller shipments into one trailer, businesses can save on transportation costs.
Consolidation services mean that by combining multiple LTL (less than truckload) shipments that are all heading in a similar location into a full truckload, business will only need to pay for the space they are using within that trailer.
Load Consolidation also reduces the chance of damage to a load, this is if from the level of handling being reduced.
Eco Friendly Transport Solution
Our system of consolidating pallets into expertly planned routes and making the maximum use of space on our vehicles means we can minimise the road miles we cover, and in turn the amount of fuel we burn. We cannot save the planet alone but every initiative such as this helps.
At Edwards Transport we have consolidation opportunities available to find out more information on our load consolidation services please contact us.
