LCL shipping: Less-than-container-load logistics

Less-than-container loads (LCLs) are ocean freight shipments of lower volume that do not require full-container capacity. Multiple shipments from different customers are grouped in order to create consolidation, enabling cost advantages.

Our LCL services – Your advantages

The consolidation of multiple shipments from different customers means you share the transportation costs compared to full-container loads (FCLs). Furthermore, LCL ocean freight is a great economical alternative for less time-sensitive airfreight shipments, not only reducing costs but also improving your environmental footprint.
