The transport of goods by road is referred to as road freight / groupage transport. In this process, groupage cargo is consolidated at a hub and transported to its destination by trucks. This process can also involve several cross docking hubs. Once at the destination hub, the truck load is broken down again and delivered to the customer via the last mile.
Freight forwarders usually move a large amount of groupage. Therefore, even small improvements in the handling of groupage have an enormous impact. In particular, capturing volume and weight has a significant impact on revenue and processes. This information can be used not only for billing, but also for load utilization planning.
