Groupage, also known as break bulk, is a method of transport used mainly by land transport agencies. It is a very good way to reduce shipping costs and solve the inconvenience for those who cannot fill a full load with their goods. Exporters or sellers share the journey with the cargo of other companies, reducing costs and pollution emissions.
This form of transport is defined as the reorganisation and grouping of products for storage or transport, and also provides advantages for companies and also for the environment. Below we will detail the main benefits and advantages that this mode brings to a company.
The main advantage, and one of the most important, is the price. Being able to transport small goods by sharing the space between several companies helps significantly to reduce costs, as you avoid hiring the whole lorry for much smaller quantities of goods.
It has a greater capacity to adapt to last minute changes due to the extension or reduction of the load to be transported.
Another advantage is the speed of service, as all the goods are transported together and we avoid having to make changes to fixed routes. This speeds up the transporte process and therefore improves the punctuality of delivery.
As there is no transhipment of goods during transport, there is a reduced risk of damage to the goods. It also facilitates the tracking and traceability of the cargo for the company.
As a transport agency, we provide this service on a regular basis, from the Mediterranean Arc to Perpignan and main European countries. In our new web page we provide a form in which you can request the service in a quick and easy way. All you have to do is fill in the type of goods you want to transport, the country of origin and the country of destination and we will take care of the rest.
