All shipments will be listed under the same master way bill, but each individual shipment will also have a house way bill to help keep the cargo organized.
One downside of the consolidated shipping approach is that shippers will have to wait until a plane has enough cargo to make up a full load.
Air consolidations are most commonly booked for the weekend, but midweek consolidations are also sometimes available.
Air cargo consolidation is the practice of combining lots from multiple consignees into one shipment (i.e.
your cargo will share space with other shippers’ cargo on an aircraft).
For those who have an urgent shipment that needs to get to its destination on a tight deadline, Global Shipping also offers air cargo charter services.
