FCL – Our Global Full-Container Load

FCL stands for full-container load and describes the transport of a container from the point of loading to the point of unloading. Depending on the volume, FCL can be the most cost-efficient transport mode for your business.

How FCL Shipping Boosts Your Business

Economically, FCL ocean freight is the recommended way of transportation if the volume from one origin to one destination reaches a sufficient capacity utilization. Moreover, the dedicated use of a container ensures the shipper full transparency, a high level of control and a secure supply chain. Alternatively, we offer LCL and consolidation services.

Freight Options for Your FCL Transport

You can choose between these freight options: Seaport-to-seaport, door-to-door, seaport-to-door or door-to-seaport transport. Let us find the best possible option and route for your shipments.
