European Groupage

Why pay for more space than you need?

Want to import/export goods but don’t have a full container or truckload? We offer European Groupage services, which allow you to share load space with our other customers. This intermodal service is a more cost-effective freight option, as you only pay for the space you require. Groupage keeps your supply chain running in a timely manner too, as you can make smaller shipments when needed, rather than wait to fill a full load each time. Our European Groupage Centre of Excellence has the best people in the industry, working strategically to strike the right balance between export and import consolidation service and price.

Frequently asked questions
 

Do you have any questions about our European or UK Container road freight services? Here’s some additional information you may find useful.

Why should I use groupage services?

If you want a cost-effective freight method and cannot fill a full load (FTL, FCL) with your cargo, our Groupage services are a great option for you. They allow you to share space with our other customers; therefore, you only pay for the space you use.

What items can be consolidated?

You can use our Groupage services for all general types of cargo. If you require shipment of other types of cargo, such as hazardous, refrigerated, temperature controlled and oversized goods, our FCL / FTL services are likely to be more appropriate for you. Visit our other services pages for more information on this.

Which countries can I use Groupage services from?

Our European Groupage services cover Spain, Portugal and Italy, with competitive rates.

Which methods of freight can I use groupage services on?

You can use our Groupage services for Road, Rail and Sea Freight. For more information on this, please visit our service pages.

What's the difference between LTL, LCL, groupage and consolidation?

LTL means Less than Truck Load: this specifically refers to trucks / Road Freight. It means that you can share container space with others, so you only pay for the space you have used.

LCL means less than container load and is used when referring to Sea Freight. Like LTL, you only have to pay for the space used.

Groupage and consolidation are the same. They refer to intermodal services which bring customers cargo together, enabling them to share the space. This is great if you do not have enough cargo to fill a full load. If you require a full container, our FCL and FTL services are also available.
