Look at ocean cargo consolidation (less than container load, or LCL). The third party logistics (3PL) provider you choose with LCL capabilities will combine complementary freight from multiple shippers into a single container. The process of cargo consolidation results in better freight rates for you, and better cargo security measures. But they willingly spend more on shipping so they can spend less on inventory, storage, returns, and other costs.
