The groupage service

Groupage transport in Switzerland

The groupage transport requires attention, professionality and control during all the steps of the shipping.

One of the key steps is the first one, called consolidation, which consist in the organization of the lot. It is fundamental to know each order in detail in order to fulfill a safe and proper assemblage. To do this, you need expert operators in the field of transports and the commercial document provided by the customer.

The carrier has to take into account different criteria to organize a groupage service, such as weight and volume of the goods, together with its intrinsic characteristics. In fact, it is fundamental to avoid combination of goods which can not travel together (e.g. dangerous goods and food).

The dangerous goods have to be carefully signaled and labeled, in compliance with the rules.

The customer, on the other hand, has to provide clear and exhaustive documentation of the goods, their nature and the right shipping address.

The carrier and the groupage transport operators have to put in practice all the measures aimed at warranting the safety in all the steps of the operation.

The parties subscribe a shipping contract where the customer fills out the transport note and is in charge for the details related to the shipping: complete address, weight, volume, dimensions, number of packages, category of goods, etc. The carrier in charge for the groupage  transport is responsible for the delivering of the goods at destination.
