How Freight Consolidation Works

Freight consolidation, also known as cargo consolidation or consolidation service, offers a way to combine multiple small shipments into one large shipment utilizing ocean containers or air freight containers. Shipping in full ocean containers (FCL) or air freight containers (ULDs) generally offer much greater value in terms of cost-per-pound or cost-per-cubic foot shipped.

In order to optimize savings, it is important to utilize every cubic foot (maximum cube utilization) up to the legal weigh limit of a given freight container. With over 20-years in freight consolidation, GFS is truly expert at loading freight containers for maximum cube utilization for both air freight and ocean freight. GFS additionally maintains a fleet of tractors for efficient drayage between GFS and the Port of Los Angeles, as well as TSA-authorized drivers able to deliver directly to LAX.
