Buyer’s Consol

Many shipments do not fill an entire container, so how can they nevertheless be transported cost-efficiently? In a word: “consols” – consolidated containers! We collect your goods and products from locations throughout Europe and group them to form cost-efficient full containers for export to overseas destinations. We handle loading of the container, import and export customs clearance, transport documentation and onward transport to the recipient. We also find the right container type for your goods, such as standard container, a temperature-controlled (reefer) container or other designs.

The ETS benefit: worry-free consolidated container transport

Our customers value being able to obtain all these “partial” services for the transport of their goods from a single source. The organisational framework for these activities is provided by the advice received from our experts, the legal regulations on export and import customs clearance, and the compilation of the relevant transport documentation. To ensure cost-effective transport, we compare the offers from different maritime shipping companies and determine the optimum transport route for your specific requirements. Our services in the area of consolidated containers are rounded off by the inbound and outbound transport of your goods all the way to the container packing station.
