What is cargo consolidation?
When shipping items from the United States to Africa, cargo consolidation plays an important role in choosing the right cargo shipping company as this ensures that the customer is saving time, money and hassle.
Nile Cargo Carrier is proud to offer free shipping consolidation to our customers. To obtain air or ocean cargo pricing request a quote or visit shipping rates.
Here’s how it works.
Customers shop online and order different products, potentially from different websites in The USA, with the intention of having them sent to Africa. The purchases are made online and products are shipped to our warehouse to be sent overseas.
That’s where the consolidation takes place. We will store and consolidate all of your products and send them all together when you are ready. This includes unpacking and repacking your purchases to make the shipment as efficient as possible. Many other businesses impose storage fees, while we offer this as a complimentary service.
The Benefit to our customers
Shipment consolidation is a free serving that we offer to all customers. When goods are consolidated, the weight of the shipment increases which can potentially allow for better shipping rates.
Reduced risk of damage
While our partners take great care in the handling of your items, damage can happen. Shipping consolidation minimizes the risk of damage by decreasing the number of different handlers or “touchpoints” that your cargo has to pass through.
Of course, it’s much easier to keep track of one large shipment than multiple smaller ones! Shipping consolidation enables you to do that. This makes for an easier and more efficient customer experience.
Cargo consolidation is an important service that offers many benefits to customers who plan on shipping multiple different items at the same time. We look forward to working with you!
