What is Shared Container Shipping?
This method of shipping to Algeria combines items belonging to different people and shipping them in the same container. The containers are usually 20 and 40 foot long and can accommodate between 20 and 40 tonnes of goods. Also known as groupage service, cargo is carefully packed and labelled inside the container to avoid mixing the goods together. Each individual consignment is issued a separate bill of lading and customs documentation to ensure the goods can be received safely at destination. One of the benefits of groupage or Shared container is that it reduces the cost of shipping your goods in a container. This means that instead of hiring a 20 foot container, one would simply hire space on an existing container and only pay for the space they use. Therefore, if your goods take up half the container, you will only pay for half a container. This is particularly good for price sensitive commercial goods that have to be shipped cheaply to avoid being overpriced.
