What is CKD/SKD condition in Logistics?

Posted by admin

In certain cases, the goods required to be transported are so huge that it is practically impossible to carry the same in a single transport vehicle.

Additionally, in certain cases, it is logistically convenient to move the goods in parts rather than move the entire goods in a single transport.

These are referred to as Semi Knocked Down (SKD) or Completely Knocked Down (CKD) goods.

In these cases, the goods are being supplied under the cover of a single invoice but more than one vehicle is used for the transport of such vehicles.

Example – Crane is being supplied from Delhi to Mumbai under a single invoice but for logistical convenience, the crane is partially knocked down and shipped in say three trucks.

We hope it is easy to understand.
