LCL Shipping: Less-Than-Container-Load Logistics

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

Our LCL Services – Your Advantages

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