What is a consolidation hub?

A facility where smaller shipments are combined with larger ones before being transported is known as a consolidation hub. These facilities are commonplace throughout the logistics sector as they can help to improve efficiency and create a smoother transportation process for smaller consignments, whilst helping to reduce transportation costs.

Consolidation hubs often have large warehouses and storage buildings where goods and materials can be kept before being prepared for transportation. They are usually located at strategic points around the country, close to motorways or other road networks which makes the facility easily accessible.

Using a consolidation hub can provide many benefits for customers and suppliers as it can provide better value for money, whilst helping to speed up the delivery process. Plus, consolidation hubs can help reduce the number of lorries and trucks on the road, meaning that they can have a positive effect on the environment by helping to reduce the carbon footprint of the logistics sector.

Demand for consolidation hubs continues to increase as customer demand grows and supply chains require more cost-effective, efficient options combined with quicker turnaround times.
