Groupage is a very efficient and cost effective way to distribute goods when volumes are either less that full vehicle loads, or, the goods are going to multiple customer addresses. Typically shipments are smaller batches of pallets or goods which we either collect from the shipper or the shipper delivers to our despatch depot. Shipments are transported over night to our overseas arrivals depot where they are discharged for loading onto smaller delivery vehicles and despatched to their various destinations.
Groupage services between the UK and Ireland are core services at Cargocare – we have operated these services daily for over 30 years and have a wealth of experience in this market. Many freight forwarding agents not servicing Ireland themselves use our UK – Ireland Groupage services assured that their shipments and their interests are in safe hands.
The advantages of our groupage service include –
- Reduced stock holding requirement through frequent deliveries; this saves stock cost and storage space
- Groupage effectively cuts transport costs by sharing them with a number of other shippers; you are only paying for the goods transported specifically for your business; you don’t have to carry additional overheads unnecessarily.
- A fast, reliable and accurate distribution partner gives better service to your customers and internal team.
