In the shipping industry, parcel shipment refers to loading the goods of more than one company on the same transport vehicle to be transported to the same destination. Partial transportation brings the transportation cost to an economic level for both transportation companies, exporters, and importers. Partial shipment offers the advantage of fast and economical shipment, especially to small-scale trade companies and sometimes bigger companies that need partial transportation.
