Who is the consolidator?
There are consolidators in some areas related to the transportation of goods and people. Such "clients" can be both individuals and legal entities that buy tickets directly from a representative of the carrier company and sell them to travel agencies and individuals. If this is the carriage of goods, then the consolidator is responsible for the distribution of goods, reducing the cost of carriage of goods by combining orders.
Consolidator is an agent or freight forwarder who distributes various cargoes of several customers in order to optimize the use of space in shipping containers. And then there are ticket consolidators. These are organizations that buy tickets in bulk from airlines at special rates.
