RETHINK YOUR LTL TRANSPORTATION STRATEGY
More companies are utilizing pool consolidation as supply chain costs continue to rise, multi-touch and freight transfer shipments result in damaged, lost or stolen products and coordination between multiple vendors complicate the shipping process. In a pool consolidation strategy, shippers have the convenience of coordinating with a single 3PL provider that has established networks to build a multi-vendor full truckload for direct runs to a single location with last mile delivery capabilities.
Through our LTL Pool Distribution services, we combine multiple less than truckload (LTL) shipments destined for a specific geographic area and then line haul them to a regional location. From there, the pool is offloaded, sorted and segregated by receiver, and then reloaded for final leg delivery. Pool consolidation is ideal for companies distributing to retail and wholesale outlets with multiple SKUs and regular volumes. Many customers also find value in this service profile when offering complementary goods to mass merchants.
