This may involve using a smaller package for certain items or simply combining all the items from different packages into one big package - we'll do whatever it takes to minimize your volumetric weight. 

Free Consolidation of Packages

CNXtrans does not charge you for consolidating your packages into a single shipment. This is ideal if you're buying from multiple suppliers/factories/Alibaba manufacturers but wish to have all your goods shipped together as a single international shipment in order to minimize your shipping costs. Consolidation is sometimes confused with repacking but in actual fact consolidation can come both with or without repacking. Consolidation simply refers to the act of shipping multiple packages concurrently as a single shipment - they do not all have to be combined into one big package - as long as they are shipped together (concurrently) it is considered one consolidated shipment. There is a base shipping charge (which can be thought of as a minimum shipping charge) for each shipment that you make and shipping multiple packages concurrently (which constitutes a consolidated shipment) ensures that you only have to pay this base charge once instead of paying it for every single package that is shipped separately.


Even without repacking them into a single package, shipping multiple packages concurrently helps you save because you are only charged the base shipping weight once. This helps reduce your international shipping costs. Naturally, if deemed appropriate for your shipment, consolidation can come with repackaging too - after assessing your shipment if we deem that combining all the items into one single large package or into fewer packages can help reduce your volumetric weight, we will do so for you at no charge.
