ocean freight consolidation


For clients who wish to  transport quantities of a few pallets but do not wish to pay for a full ocean freight container, Horizon offers a competitive Less-Than-Container-Load (LCL)ocean freight consolidation alternative.

We consolidate individual consignments on behalf of multiple clients together into single containers, spreading the cost based on the share of the container you use.

We offer a range of consolidated freight products between our global network offices.   Having focused on building our market share between the “triangle” of Europe, USA and Far East over 3 decades, we have generated the “critical mass” necessary to offer our clients the benefits associated with consolidated ocean freight services.

Ocean freight consolidation services provide clients with a cost-effective method of transportation, taking advantage of reduced rates, protected capacity and reliable schedules – enabling them to accurately plan their supply chains.

Horizon operates scheduled consolidation services between our network offices.

Individual consignments are assembled together at our origin warehouses and loaded into ocean containers.   Our teams are directly accountable to you and take extra care to ensure that consignments are handled safely and loaded securely, to avoid the risk of damage or loss.

We have negotiated protected allocations with major steamship lines, reducing the risk of delay/offload to an absolute minimum.

Containers are sealed and remain intact until received into Horizon’s destination warehouses, where individual consignments are unloaded and checked in prior to final delivery.

  • Economical pricing
  • Protected space – reduced risk of delay
  • Reduced risk of damage or loss
