What is consol delivery order and what is liner deliver order. What is the difference between consol DO and liner DO.


If a cargo is booked through a consolidator, he re-books the cargo with main carrier to deliver to final destination. The consol agent consigns cargo to his overseas counterpart at final destination of consignee. Once after arrival of cargo at final destination, the counter part office of consolidator collects goods from counterpart office of main carrier and delivers goods to final consignee.


Once the cargo arrived at final destination of port, the main carrier issues a delivery order to the freight forwarder who is the consignee of main carrier. This delivery order is called Liner D.O.


The delivery order issued to consignee by a freight forwarder or consol agent is called consol D.O.
