What is a consolidated warehouse?

A consolidated warehouse is a third-party facility where the small shipments from different sellers are combined into larger truckloads that are destined for the same location.  

 

The process carried out for this process in the warehouse includes organizing and sorting the orders before they are ready for shipment. The goal of the consolidated warehouse is to help reduce the transportation cost for all the orders that are combined.  

 

The consolidated warehouses have increased over the years due to the emergence of B2C channels and ecommerce.
