What is Consolidation in logistics?

Consolidation is the process where a carrier or a shipping company combines several smaller shipments into one full container.

Ideally, consolidation favours both the carrier and the shipper. In the case of the carrier, it helps to reduce the cost of shipment and to make delivery of goods quicker. And for the shipper with smaller shipment, he would not need to pay for a full container shipment.
