Import Consolidation

Let’s get your goods to your customers quicker and cheaper

If you don’t have a full container or truckload and your customers cannot wait, why not consider our export and import consolidation services? Paying for other options is uneconomical for your business and the environment, and sharing space gives you the best of both worlds – getting goods to your customers through the most efficient method of transport without delays or higher costs.

When you partner with Good Logistics for your export and import consolidation needs, we will provide you with a personal account manager who will strategically manage your shipments across land, sea and air, and via LCL (less than container load) and LTL (less than truckload), through our international network, with access to weekly schedules to suit your individual requirements.
