A deconsolidator is an enterprise that provides services to un-group shipments, orders, goods, etc., to facilitate distribution. Deconsolidation is the process of breaking down a consolidated shipment into its component parts so that it can be distributed more easily. It is often done by logistics service providers as a way to add value for their customers.

There are several reasons why a customer might use deconsolidation services. For example:

  • They may need to ship goods to multiple destinations and it is more efficient to send them in one consolidated shipment.
  • Or, they may be receiving goods from multiple suppliers that need to be consolidated before being shipped to the customer’s facility.
  • In either case, a deconsolidator can save the customer time and money by streamlining the distribution process.

Deconsolidation services (and a deconsolidator) can be particularly useful for small and mid-size businesses that don’t have the resources to manage their own distribution operation. By working with a deconsolidator, they can take advantage of the expertise and infrastructure that these companies have developed. And, since the deconsolidator is acting as a middleman, the business doesn’t need to worry about dealing with multiple suppliers or shipping schedules.
