What We Offer
FCL shipping is the abbreviation for ‘Full Container Load’. When a shipper books a 20ft or 40ft container to use solely for their own purposes.
LCL shipping is the abbreviation for ‘Less Than Container Load’. Traders who ship less than enough goods to fill a container may book an LCL service whereby their goods will be consolidated and share container space with other shippers goods. Much like conventional road groupage.
