What Is Freight Consolidation?

Freight consolidation involves pairing multiple less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments heading in the same direction into a partial or full truckload shipment. This means a trailer full of several different shipments from several different shippers. This allows carriers to optimize their fleet and fill their trailers.

Does Freight Consolidation Cost Extra?

Short answer: nope! Freight consolidation saves you money since you will only be paying for the space your freight occupies rather than the entire truck. It doesn’t matter if you are shipping domestically or internationally when you choose FreightCenter as your third-party logistics provider. Your freight is automatically consolidated with other shipments that are moving on the same lane or headed in the same direction. By doing this, we are able to keep your costs down while reducing truck capacity issues that arise when space is wasted.
