Groupage : receipt of goods and services
If you have isolated items or just a few that you need to have shipped, sending them as groupage freight
suggests itself as a sensible and cost-effective option. The goods will be collected and combined into
larger units before being dispatched – being carried, for example, in seaborne containers to destinations
all over the planet. As a warehouse for groupage containers, we carry out all the tasks of an import freight
forwarder in connection
with groupage freight loads:
- Receipt of groupage containers
- Unloading containers
- Loading groupage consignments
- Transshipment and handling of groupage
- Delivery of the goods to individual recipients within Germany
As further services for groupage, we offer the following:
- Preparation for dispatch
- Labelling and pricing
The process in detail
The shipment of groupage is a demanding logistical task. In what is known as the ‘pre-carriage’ or first leg,
The freight forwarder takes delivery of the individual goods from the consignor. He collects and assembles
them into a larger shipment for onward transport.
Therefore he needs the following informations :
- Size and weight of the individual items
- Delivery date
The next phase, the main leg takes place – this is the actual shipment of the groupage consignment.
Like the export freight forwarder, we too, as the import freight forwarder, have an important role in the
transport of groupage. We take delivery of the consignment, unload the individual items and prepare
them for onward carriage – for forwarding to the final recipient.
We will be happy to carry out these tasks on your behalf. You can count on our support as a reliable and
experienced logistics service provider for the receipt, unloading and transshipment of your groupage.
