Less-than-Container Load (LCL) Shipping
What is LCL shipment?
Why choose LCL shipping?
What is the difference between LCL and FCL?
- With FCL shipping, you pay for the whole container, and there will only be one shipper. This means there is also little handling since your FCL shipment does not need to be de-consolidated at the end of the journey and will be sealed right after loading.
- LCL shipping, on the contrary, lets you share a container with other shippers and thus consolidate a container that wouldn’t be full otherwise. Shipping boxes and pallets allows for a more flexible delivery based on your actual needs, as even the smallest cargo can have a big impact on your business.

How does LCL shipping work?
Your cargo will then be grouped with others, loaded, and sealed at a Container Freight Station, and it will leave for your destination on a ship after having gone through customs clearance. If you wish, our customs experts can also take care of the Customs Clearance.Upon arrival, the container is unloaded, and your boxes (or pallets) are delivered either directly to you or to our warehouse for you to pick up.
