Consolidated cargoes

Delivery of international consolidated cargo is an efficient way to transport various goods, raw materials, or equipment. You pay only for a place occupied with your cargo as the cost of transportation is divided among all customers. Multimodal transportation by Meridian Line Company is the ability to deliver goods with minimal costs, quickly and accurately complying with the requirements of international carriage.
