The consolidation describes the combining flows of goods to ensure an effective control. The consolidation process primarily serves to make the transport of goods cheaper. There must be a distinction between two types of consolidation. When consolidating over time, all goods destined for the same consignee are put on hold for a period of time until the transport capacity is exhausted. Of course, the one-off sending of many shipments can save costs, from which the sender benefits through discounts. Then there is the spatial consolidation.Different goods shipments are picked up by different recipients and distributed to different recipients in one step.
