It is not an acceptable practice to ship multiple hunters trophies in one crate into the USA. Multiple hunters trophies in one crate is not what will happen to anyones trophies on this group hunt, where it is not legal to do so. For instance, we can ship multiple hunters trophies in one crate legally into Canada. That could be misconstrued as consolidation of trophies vs consolidation of shipments. The issue here is likely one of terminology and its usage. Freight Consolidators actually buy space on a plane and fill it up with multiple crates or items, thus saving money. Individuals would rarely have enough cargo to be bothered with this concept. (Damn, would that not be a great problem to have as an individual hunter!) eg. "A consolidated shipment is the result of combining multiple LTL shipments from various shippers into one full container (multi-stop truckload) shipment. Consolidated shipping allows shippers to earn preferred rates and helps optimize supply chain logistics by saving time and reducing cost." Happy education everyone. Keep working to help AH Members.
