So glad you’re here!


Presumably you are taking a look because you would like to know a bit more about XXL CONSOLIDATION.

What Can We Do For You?

We’d love to be able to do everything for you. But to be honest, we can’t do everything. But nobody else comes close to what we actually do. Because XXL CONSOLIDATION is unique.

We consolidate large items

You want to ship something. It is too big for a container. A flat rack would be half-empty – which would make the consignment excessively expensive. Excessively and unnecessarily. Because we consolidate large items. Figuratively speaking: we fit them together like a jigsaw puzzle.

You save

The advantage? It’s obvious: without consolidation you pay for the entire flat rack, regardless of how much space your goods actually take up. If you let us do the jigsaw puzzle, you only pay for the space that you actually occupy – and therefore save a lot of money.

You help

Moving towards sustainability is imperative. Also in transportation for big machinery or any large cargo item to be shipped. By using our service you actively help to contribute to reduce CO2 emission and save up to 25 % CO2 emission compared to when using single FCL services.

We bear the risk

So where is the catch? There isn’t one. At worst, it might take us a couple of days to find the right piece of the puzzle. But that is an exception – because we lead the field when it comes to large piece jigsaw puzzles. Why not try us out?
