LCL Shipping: Less-Than-Container-Load Logistics

Less-than-container-load (LCL) suggests ocean freight shipments of lower volume that do not occupy a full-container capacity. Many shipments from respective customers are combined to create a consolidation, achieving cost advantages.

Our LCL Services – Your Advantages

The consolidation of many shipments from various customers allows you to split the transportation costs, differing from full-container loads (FCL). Besides, LCL ocean freight is an ideal economical alternative for less time-sensitive airfreight shipments as it also improves your environmental footprint on top of cost-savings.

You can choose between these freight options: Seaport-to-seaport, door-to-door, seaport-to-door or door-to-seaport transport.
