Ocean LCL Shipping

In less-than-container load (LCL), the goods you are shipping are combined with cargo from one or more other companies so that the whole shipping container is filled. This means you are not renting an entire container for your goods; you are only paying for the actual space your materials require.

When using LCL ocean shipping, it’s important that the volume of your shipment be correctly calculated. Weight alone doesn’t offer enough information to determine the amount of space your cargo will take in the portion of the shipping container allocated for your goods. Your fees will be determined by a combination of both the weight and the volume of your cargo.

Why would you choose this option? If you’re a smaller company trying to move smaller shipments, or if you ship to customers in many destinations in individual packages, then you may save money and total transit with LCL.


Ocean FCL Shipping

Full container load (FCL) is booking the space of the entire container for your cargo alone. Your products won’t be sharing space with any cargo from other companies. Ocean shipping containers come in a variety of sizes, making it possible to choose the best size for your purchase or sale. Typical ocean shipping container sizes include 20-foot containers, 40-foot containers and 40-foot high cubes; they are 8 to 10 feet tall.
