Buyers and Sellers Consolidation

Rhenus USA offers buyer’s and seller’s consolidation services for your ocean freight shipments. By combining your less-than-container-load (LCL) shipments in a full-container load (FCL), you can save costs and resources.


Buyer’s and Seller’s Consolidation Services

  • Buyer’s consolidation services combine less-than-container-load (LCL) shipments from different suppliers that share a common consignee. The shipments are consolidated at a central consolidation center, loaded into a dedicated container, and sent to their destination as a full-container load (FCL). 
  • Seller’s consolidation services describe the scenario of multiple shipments from the same origin loaded into one FCL container by the seller or supplier. It is then sent to the port of destination, where the individual shipments are unloaded and distributed to various buyers or consignees.
