Why is package consolidation such a big deal? Wouldn’t it make sense to send each package from each store directly to your home address? We are going to explain it to you more in detail.
Free consolidation is the big secret on how to achieve huge savings on shipping. You can save over 50% to 90% on shipping costs.
Why? Each package contains a lot of packaging material and space that is being packed by the retailer.
Also, the shipping cost for smaller packages is higher per kilo/pound compared to bigger packages.

For orders where free consolidation seems like an economical option, make sure you have suitable packaging. You might need a heavier box to transport a heavier parcel safely.
if you order some small stuff with a large parcel, you can often create a consolidated package using the box the larger product box.
That box should already be sturdy enough to handle the weight of the package. Our parcel handlers carefully open your package, add the other items for the order, then reseal the box securely and carefully,
Weight and Consolidate!
Oversized items are sometimes subject to dimensional weight, or DIM weight, charges. DIM weight calculates a “weight” based on the dimensions of the package.
To calculate DIM weight, carriers multiply package height times length times width and then divide by a DIM factor.
If the resultant dimensional weight exceeds the actual weight of the box, you will be charged for the DIM weight. For these products, free consolidation can be a great choice.
