Definition

The grouping (via computer sorting and consolidation) of individual packages and shipments going to a single location, into a single aggregate shipment, to obtain the lowest consolidated shipping cost. An example would be shipping via UPS Ground service to a client throughout the day, and at carrier closeout, consolidating any packages/shipments that qualify into UPS Hundredweight. This eliminates the need to stage or manually consolidate carrier shipments to qualify for lower “Shipment-Based Pricing”, and the consolidation is processed as an accounting change within the shipping software.
