Buyer’s Consolidation (BCN) provides a solution for customers who use multiple suppliers or have multiple manufacturers to ship to a singular destination while reducing freight costs and streamlining the process. By grouping these different suppliers and manufacturers’ shipments onto a single, dedicated Full-Container Load (FCL) container before shipping, the customer enjoys a more efficient and streamlined supply chain.
The Buyer’s Consolidation method of shipping combines the benefits of both Less-than-Container Load (LCL) and FCL shipping. We collect and consolidate your goods from the multiple sources at origin to our own Container Freight Station (CFS), palletising and loading onto a full container dedicated to your cargo. This ensures that your goods remain entirely within your control and visibility, without you having to wait for a particular supplier to ship enough goods to make an FCL.
Additionally, with an entire container dedicated to your cargo, we can ensure optimal utilisation and higher security. We simplify the process by coordinating and managing the bookings on your behalf and consolidating the goods at our own facilities.
Our global network operates CFS in key markets, strategically located near major manufacturing hubs in the Asia-Pacific, Europe, Oceania and India. For customers who have suppliers across multiple countries, we also have extensive capabilities to provide Multi-Country Consolidation (MCC) and offer the same benefits of BCN.
There are many benefits of shipping with a world-class BCN service provider such as TVS SCS. We manage the local pickup from your suppliers at origin, and have capabilities across all modes at origin, in-transit and at destination. By helping you ship with BCN, we not only reduce the risk of damage by consolidating multiple LCL shipments, it is also more cost effective.
Our other ocean capabilities include Vessel Charter, Breakbulk Solutions and Intermodal and Multimodal Solutions. We offer flexible service for all types of container equipment, including dry-box, open top, flat rack, reefer (refrigerated), Flexitank and Isotank.
Our global freight forwarding network integrates our e-Connect online track and trace with the CargoWise IT platform. We use this across our entire international business to provide you with seamless 24/7 shipment visibility and live access to your data. With e-Connect, our airfreight customers also enjoy one login to access other aspects of their business, such as warehousing, order management, account management and shipment management information on the desktop website platform.
We also have a mobile app available on iOS and Android, which provides on-the-go visibility on shipment data that matters most to you.

To offer our customers competitive pricing and efficient freight forwarding, we group several smaller consignments (deliveries) from different suppliers into a larger consignment. Not only does it create efficiency in space utilisation, it gives us the ability to leverage much better pricing from the carriers on behalf of our customers.
We have 45 dedicated freight forwarding offices in 15 countries, and work with trusted and reliable agents across the world to deliver global freight forwarding capabilities.
