FCL AND LCL: WHAT DO THEY MEAN?
Basically, you have two ways to transport your cargo in a container.
FCL (Full Container Load) offers you the possibility to send their cargo in a container that will be used exclusively to transport their goods. It is the better option with larger volumes of cargo or in case of heavy loads, delicate or valuable.
LCL (Less than Container Load) is as a container garbage collector. Your goods share the container with other cargo. In this way, you can hire exactly the space that your cargo needs. We will be happy to help you to choose the mode that best suits your shipping.
FCL and LCL: when is the best one modality or the other
As a general rule, the FCL are suitable for large volumes. The sender loaded the container, and the recipient downloads it. In this case, depending on the business operation, our client has the possibility to choose between a variety of services and, for example, choose the first boat to go to sail, the cheapest or the fastest.
LCL worth, with shipments of smaller size. This mode allows us to combine shipments of multiple clients. Thus, the costs of maritime transport can be shared among multiple clients. The load will be taken to a warehouse, it is placed in the container according to the regulations for maritime and transport you to the boat. At the port of destination, will open the container and shipments unit will be transported to the intended destination. For certain commercial operations, we provide options LCL-Express.
For example, if a customer needs to ship an urgent delivery from Shanghai to New York, the cargo will send by sea to Long Beach, Los Angeles, and from there are transported by truck to New York. In this way, the time limits are reduced in comparison with a transport only by sea. In addition, this modality fast is cheaper to send the goods by air transport.
