LCL (Less-Than-Container Load)

LCL (Less-Than-Container Load) is the goods that will be loaded into a shared container and shipped either as pallets or loose cartons. This mode is normally shared containers with other customers which are charged by cbm(cubic meter) or m3 (meter cube). When the seller or buyer’s goods are too small to fill the entire container. Instead of their goods being loaded into their container, they will use a shared container with others to reduce the cost. However, LCL takes more time to deliver than FCL shipment and increases the risk of damage, misplacement, and loss.


FCL (Full Container Load)

FCL (Full Container Load), is using the whole container to load the goods at the seller place and deliver it to delivered to the buyer with sealed. It is for high enough volume shipments to warrant being transported in their own container. The goods will be loaded into a container which might be 20ft, 40ft, and 45ft long. It is charged as a flat fee per container.
