Useful information:

In the modern world, freight carriers must be trained in the legal and economic spheres to be competitive. It is very important to build a competent price strategy, track customer demand in the freight market, and introduce the most modern and popular methods of delivery. Now more often the transportation of goods with the help of modular cargo is used.
 Delivery of assorted goods is carried out as follows:
 several shippers pay one vehicle that delivers their goods to their destination. Delivery of goods in this way brings benefits not only to senders, but also to carrier companies. The company receives additional income and replenishment of the client base, of course if they remain satisfied with the services provided. In addition, the transportation of consolidated cargo helps to avoid vehicle downtime.
 The consignors have their own benefits. When paying only the part in the body, rather than renting the whole car, you can save a considerable amount of money. Combined cargoes are delivered not only by road, but also by water, air and rail.
 At first glance it may seem that there are no shortcomings in this mode of cargo transportation, but this is not so. Transportation of consolidated cargo, like any other activity, has a number of shortcomings.
The first disadvantage is that it takes quite a long time to form a groupage cargo, since it is necessary to wait for the remaining shippers.
The second disadvantage is that the first cargo immersed in the vehicle will be delivered last. This moment needs to be monitored and planned in advance for the delivery time, taking into account the order of loading of the goods into the container or body of the car.
The third drawback is that the signing of the contract for the transportation of cargo does not happen promptly. This is due to the fact that after determining the tariffs, customers are distracted from the process and are not in a hurry to sign a contract with the transport company. In the event that there are a lot of such people, the process of signing contracts can be dragged on for a long period. This causes a delay in the shipment of the combined cargo, which can lead to discontent of the consignee, even to the point of rejecting it.
 It is very important that before the start of transportation of the combined cargo, the carrier and the customer signed the contract. This will resolve all disputes and inconsistencies that may arise during the route of the goods. In the contract, the terms, tariffs and features of the provision of transportation services are prescribed. After signing, it will be impossible to make unreasonable claims, since delivery is regulated by the current agreement of the parties.
 Slows down the process of formation and transportation of composite cargoes, not only the expectation of senders, but also the coordination with them of conditions and tariffs for delivery. In addition, consolidated cargoes are formed only from such goods, which are close to each other in their properties.
 Transport companies always pay attention to the dimensions of the cargo and the amount of payment. The most welcome cargo carriers are large cargo, which they prefer. And smaller shipments are the so-called preload, if there is enough free space in the vehicle. In this case, everything is made very quickly, since a significant part of the body is already occupied by a large load. Customers sending small consignments of goods in the form of a pre-load are usually interested in the speed of delivery, so they quickly make an advance payment and sign the contract.
Collecting an order from small lots is very simple and fast, so there are no delays.
 Of course, there may be a situation where it is not possible to find the right number of customers who want to transport their goods as a preload. Conscientious transport companies warn their customers about the possibility of a situation when there will not be suitable applicants for the shipment of the combined cargo. If the deadlines are tightened, and goods for loading have not been found, you should honestly tell the client everything and offer to take a smaller car, which will cost a little less.
 Sometimes transport companies cooperate with each other and hand over to each other clients that they themselves can not service for one reason or another. In this case, it is necessary to describe the situation to the client. In this case, he does not lose anything, and the cargo will be delivered on time. This will help to maintain the client's confidence, since the company's employees not only refused him, but offered an alternative option for carrying out transportation, although at a loss.
Thus, customers for consolidated cargo, save on delivery, but the delivery time increases
