Consolidation provides scale savings in shipment by creating large loading lots from small quantities of cargo. The main reason for consolidation is to reduce transportation costs and speed up the paperwork and customs processes. Consolidated transportation is in case of shipment of the products to the same customer and the same region, transporting them in one piece by combining them and waiting for a while.
