      What exactly does Groupage Freight mean?

      In contrast to LTL/FTL, transports in which individual pieces are shipped are referred to as groupage freight. According to the most common definition, groupage freight is lighter than 3,000 kg and smaller than 6 pallet storage spaces (2.4 loading meters). A distinction is made between the following groupage freights

      • Package: The package is the smallest shipment unit
      • Groupage freight: ‘Groupage freight’ is a collection of several packages that is combined into one shipment unit (e.g. a loaded pallet).

      The correct packaging for Groupage Freight

      Once the goods are ready for groupage freight, the question of suitable packaging arises. First of all, it is important to know that you as the shipper are responsible for it. At this point, we recommend a one-way or Euro pallet unless you have goods that are shipped in a flight case, IBC container or bicycle box. Regardless of the packaging chosen, shipments weighing 30 kg or more must be accessible from underneath by a forklift.

      After selecting the packaging material, the next step is to properly package and secure the goods on the packaging material. We recommend the following packaging materials for this purpose:

      • Cardboard
      • Bubble wrap
      • Adhesive tape
      • Tension belts
      • Edge protection

      Shipping without transport-safe packaging is not recommended for groupage freight, as there is a risk that the goods will be damaged during handling.

      For more detailed recommendations, we refer to our packaging tips, where we have covered this topic in detail.
