Cargo Consolidation Services
D. Heath International's dry and temp consolidation services are another cost effective alternative to traditional LTL shipments. Consolidations are the reverse of pool distribution services. D. Heath International gathers LTL volumes into a single distribution center from multiple shippers in the same region, then builds consolidated loads for a single shipment that delivers direct to the receiving consignee dock.
Consolidations reduce freight costs by sending the longest leg of the shipment via truck. Like pooling, consolidation services also improve transit, reduce damage and maintains temperature integrity because unlike standard LTL shipments, it is not crossed docked across an LTL network.
