Considering Groupage Services for Non-Standard Item Deliveries

Cargo Express

Efficiency is one of the most important considerations when working in logistics. From comprehensive route planning to warehouse management and organising border crossing documentation ahead of time, saving time and money is always on our mind.

That’s where groupage transport comes into play, offering a cost effective and environmentally efficient solution for businesses looking to optimise their shipping processes. But what is cargo groupage, and can it handle the challenge of delivering non-standard items? Read on to find out!

What is Groupage Transport?

Groupage transport, which you may know as consolidated shipping, is a logistics strategy that combines multiple smaller shipments from different distributers into a single, larger shipment all heading in the same direction.

We recognise the importance of cost efficiency and sustainability in logistics, and our groupage transport services are designed to meet the diverse needs of our clients while minimising costs and environmental footprint.

Practical Applications of Groupage Loads

By combining individual shipments using groupage transport, we can help save costs for us and our clients and reduce the environmental impact by maximising available cargo space. Instead of several companies paying for the full journey and vehicle space individually, they can split the cost a single journey between them.

By using groupage transport services, businesses can also benefit from reduced warehousing and storage costs, as there’s often a reduced turnaround between shipping dates, and improved customer satisfaction, since shipping savings can be passed onto the consumer. It is also a fully flexible and scalable logistics solution, making it ideal for businesses of all sizes.

One of the most significant advantages of groupage transport is its ability to accommodate non-standard items, helping to save money on oversized and or specialist deliveries.

How Can Groupage Loads Support Non-Standard Item Delivery?

Many people think that groupage is only an effective option for the transport of many small deliveries. However, this is not the case, as groupage can effectively support the transportation of oversized cargo, making it a versatile option for businesses with diverse shipping needs.

Groupage transport with Cargo Express is well-suited for delivering non-standard items due to our flexible and efficient nature. We have a huge fleet of vehicles available for road transport solutions, meaning that we can accommodate deliveries of all shapes and sizes.

Using the dimensions of your non-standard shipment, we can easily choose a vehicle that would suit your needs and accompanying deliveries from other senders to maximise available space and minimise costs.

We understand the unique challenges associated with delivering non-standard items. That’s why our groupage transport services are specifically designed to accommodate oversized cargo, ensuring safe and timely deliveries every time.

What to Consider When Delivering Non-Standard Items Through Groupage Loads

Groupage transport can accommodate a wide range of non-standard materials, from machinery to furniture, but it is important to be mindful of the specific requirements of each item. Prior to shipping non-standard items through our groupage services, you may need to consider certain factors to ensure a smooth shipping process.

To assess its compatibility with our groupage transport and to find suitable accompanying deliveries, you will need to provide us with the size, weight, and dimensions of your cargo.

Additionally, please communicate any special handling requirements to ensure the safe transportation and storage of your non-standard material, especially if you plan on using our warehousing solutions. Our team are experienced in handling heavy or fragile items, but these will require additional packaging or strapping which can take up extra cargo space.
