STEP 6: Consolidation
There are a few options to consider when consolidating your products for international shipping, and we’ll work through these together.
If your items have all been ordered from one manufacturer, we would have already advised you to work with Minimum Order Quantities (MOQs) that maximise the volumes of containers used for your shipment. Low container loads (LCLs) should be avoided because, naturally, full container loads (FCLs) are the most cost-effective way to ship.
We’ll prepare all shipping information for you in coordination with the factory. We also keep the loading images of all shipments on record to make sure the goods have been loaded in an orderly and safe manner.
Consumer Product Journey
We’ll make sure to draft every required document for your approval before issuing the final versions. Usually, the required international shipping documents are:
- Commercial invoice
- Bill of lading (B/L) or air waybill (AWB)
- Certificate of origin (CO)
- Packing list (PL)
Your scissors are about to be shipped. Happy sailing!
We’ll help you consolidate your shipments in the most effective way, which can significantly influence your costs and lead time.
