Groupage transport is combining several small loads into one large one. In this way, it offers an efficient and cost-saving solution. Logistics costs are often heavier for small companies than for large ones. With the help of groupage, logistics services are more accessible to small businesses.

What is groupage transport?

Smaller companies often face more challenges with logistics costs compared to larger organisations. For this reason, it can certainly be interesting for smaller companies to use groupage transport. This involves combining several small shipments into one larger shipment. This not only makes transport more efficient, but also more cost-friendly and sustainable.

In practice, groupage is often arranged by forwarders or logistics service providers specialised in organising this type of shipment, such as DNA United Forwarders. Thus, we take care of collecting, sorting and combining the various small consignments. In addition, we plan the most efficient routes and arrange the final transport to the final destination. This allows even small shipments to find their way to the desired location in a cost-effective and sustainable way.

Groupage transport options at DNA

Whether your shipment needs to go to the Netherlands, Germany or the UK; DNA United Forwarders offers various groupage options to various destinations. This way of transport is particularly advantageous if you are flexible with the delivery time of your shipment. This is because it allows us to cleverly combine different shipments. As a result, you only pay for the space you actually use, which is a cost-efficient solution for your transport needs.

Advantages of groupage transport

Groupage transport offers a great way to make the best use of the available space within means of transport, such as trucks. This is done, as mentioned earlier, by combining several smaller shipments. This method enables more efficient use of transport capacity and thus also contributes to a reduction in costs. This is because transport costs are shared among several shippers. This is particularly advantageous for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) or individual shippers who do not have the capacity to fill an entire truckload themselves. For these parties, groupage transport is an affordable option to transport their goods without the need for full (truck) loads.

By bundling shipments within one transport, groupage not only reduces costs but also the number of 'transport movements' required. As fewer trucks need to be driven, for example, this results in a significant reduction in CO2 emissions. Groupage transport is therefore more efficient not only from an economic point of view, but also ecologically. This reduction in environmental impact is in line with global sustainability goals. Thus, it plays an important role in reducing the ecological footprint of logistics activities. Moreover, for our groupage transports, we consciously rely on partners who use trucks with minimal emissions.
