ILSA offers consolidation services to buyers to consolidate shipments from various suppliers into one full container load shipment. This service solution includes booking with carriers, customs clearance, warehousing, consolidation & documentation. It enables buyers to consolidate several cargoes supplied by multiple sellers at our warehousing facilities. A stage-wise flow chart is provided to the buyers, thus keeping them constantly updated which in turn assists them in their planning, post cargo arrival at destination.This is an interesting & cost efficient solution wherein a container is packed when a “predefined” volume quantity has been bridged. The concept also offers efficiency & security to the transport cost.
We are one of the pioneers & market leaders of LCL consolidation services into Africa via the hubs of Mombasa, Dar Es Salaam, Durban & Port Louis. In addition, we offer weekly consolidation services to Colombo, Singapore, Port Kelang and many worldwide destinations through the hubs of Felixstowe, Antwerp, Rotterdam and Hamburg. Our services include large volumes of cargo handling, local vendor support services and overseas delivery, enabling significant value addition to our customer needs. We provide “real-time” reporting including transhipment information, delivery status of shipments etc. Cargoes are carefully handled by our operations team to avoid damages at the time of offloading & stacking. Cargoes are also well stowed, secured & containers well planned ensuring adequate safety & optimum utilisation of volume.
Over the years, manifold growth in FCL volumes to various destinations, has enabled us to provide our customers with multiple options of carriers to choose the correct vessel for their freight. Our FCL forwarding programme is very well managed & our large volume of containers gives us the required advantage to procure competitive pricing & quality service from operators. Our aim is to leverage our hard won & valued relationships to provide our customers with the most flexible options in the industry.
