Less container load
Submit a form for cargo volume from 1 cubic meter and up to 20 m³. LCL shipment is the most economical way to ship small cargo.
Difference Between LCL & FCL
Full container load, or FCL, and less than container load, or LCL, are terms used to refer to overseas shipping of cargo. The abbreviations also may be used to refer to transportation of cargo by train, by substituting the word "car" for "container." FCL and LCL are different in both definition and practice.
Less Than Container Load (LCL)
Less than container load is a shipment that will not fill a container. With an LCL shipment, you pay for your load to be shipped in a container with one or more loads from other customers of the freight transport provider. If you know that you cannot fill even a 20-foot container, LCL is the most sensible option in terms of cost and convenience.
Uses of LCL
When using LCL shipping services, you need not worry about returning the container after delivery. Because you are sharing the container, it is the concern of the shipping container service company, which is likely to have return trips booked for that LCL container. Shippers using LCL need be concerned only about the load being shipped and nothing else.
