ICExpress endeavours to consolidate shipments to make up a full container load. This arrangement allows the goods to be shipped as containerized-cargo that offers greater security at lower shipping rates. At arrival at the depot, the consolidated shipment is separated (deconsolidated or degrouped) back into the original individual consignments for delivery to their respective consignees
Regardless of where you need to deliver freight, road transport is required to get the goods to their final destination, or the airport, hub, or harbour for onward shipping.
FCL/LCL and consolidation can be explained as follows:
A more cost effective service, for the larger / heavier, less time sensitive consignments.
Delivery is achieved within 24 to 72 hours, depending on final destination.
FCL/LCL transport is a less expensive mode of transporting goods over all distances
CBRF Cross Border Roadfreight services our countries direct neighbours
Door to door service
Option of using a tail-lift truck when loading/offloading facilities are not available at the shipper/consignee premises - this is requested and costed at the quote stage
Roadfreight is ideal for remote areas due to the ability of the transport being able to reach these areas
Flexibility in being able to cross-ship using multiple vehicles swapping partial loads at pre-determined loactions
Ability to carry heavier loads that other means of transport are not able to.
Use of consolidation to share costs of transport amongst multiple carriers
LCL (Less than container load - Shared container) and FCL (Full container load - dedicated container)
