Consolidation

Your Consolidation Partner of Choice.

The ideal solution for smaller consignments that do not require a container.

Cargo consolidation is an essential part of the international business handled by Gravitas Worldwide and provides an important service for all shippers/consignees dealing with smaller orders which do not fill a shipping container (Less than Container Load –LCL).

Benefits of consolidation:

Cargo is consolidated either on the basis of many shipments for different consignees in a single container, or acting for a single consignee who buys cargo from different shippers and so reduces costs  by combining the different shipments into a single load – buyer consolidation.

Linked to the consolidation activities, Gravitas also operates as a N.V.O.C.C. (Non Vessel Operating Common Carrier), issuing our own bills of lading for the international carriage of cargo. The issue of this bill of lading provides both shipper and consignee the convenience of having negotiable documents available quickly, with the full protection afforded by insurers which can be provided by Gravitas upon request. This arm of the Company operates extensively in the Indian Sub Continent and Far East Markets.

Containers destined for the UK are placed under a Customs bond and unpacked at our Customs approved terminals in London, Felixstowe or Southampton to facilitate the submission of documents for Customs clearance.
