Pool distribution involves consolidating multiple shipments from a single shipper or multiple shippers at one point of origin. Then the individual shipments / load moves to a specific geographic region, with multiple delivery points within that region for individual shipment delivery.
Pool distribution is more efficient than other shipping options as it removes the need for multiple legs on the trip. Typically the most costly miles for a truck are the first and last few miles.
Pool distribution cost is based on density and miles, meaning it does not require complex formulas and is more straightforward to calculate the costs.
Besides density and volume, other factors impacting the efficiency of pool distribution is the distance from the distribution center to the pool point as well as the percent of cubic feet of the truckload trailer that is filled with freight loaded at the distribution center. The greater the mileage from origin distribution center to destination pool and the higher percentage cube of the truckload trailer, the greater the cost savings potential.
Pool distribution is faster as your shipment will be making fewer stops & makes it easy to track your shipment.
By placing fewer trucks on the road you are doing your part to reduce carbon footprint. Pooling shipments is a great way to begin “going green” & to consume less fuel.
