What is general cargo transport and how does it work?

General cargo refers to goods that can be transported in one piece. It can be a package as well as a pallet, a barrel or a crate. Liquid cargoes such as milk, petrol, gases or chemicals, on the other hand, are not referred to as general cargo.

In principle, general cargo is understood to be a single shipment that is transported from the consignor to the consignee together with other shipments and would not fully utilise the permissible payload of the transport vehicle alone.

The process of transporting general cargo is an organisational challenge. Our employees make fast and safe shipments possible through precise planning and optimal networking. Optimum use of the available freight space ensures efficient and cost-effective handling of the shipments.


Costs & price calculation of a general cargo shipment

The general cargo transport prices can be calculated from the following factors:

  1. Collection of the general cargo from the consignor (pre-carriage)
  2. Transhipment and distribution of the goods to the groupage lines
  3. Transport to the partner depot (main run)
  4. Transhipment and distribution of the goods to the delivery vehicles
  5. Delivery of your goods to the consignee (on-carriage)

In order to be able to calculate your general cargo costs or the pallet prices for general cargo precisely, simply use our freight cost calculator or contact us personally.
