CFS – The Core Aspects You Need to Know

  • A CFS is a special warehouse where cargo is consolidated or deconsolidated and then staged for the next transport leg by a group of transportation professionals
  • There are two types of container freight stations – origin and destination CFS
  • Origin CFS denotes the facility where the freight shipments are originally consolidated. The shipments then travel to a destination CFS
  • At a destination CFS, the imported freight is devanned from the container and then packaged for its next round of transport to the end client domestically
  • Exported LCL (less than container load) freight is packaged and consolidated into containers for FCL (full container load) shipment, and then the full containers are trucked to port for export
  • A CFS is commonly located near oceans, lakes, ports, major highways, and airports, allowing for different means of cargo travel
