SEAFREIGHT INTERNATIONAL & DOMESTIC FORWARDING
Sea freight, which is the system of transporting cargo by sea, is suitable for large articles or bulk cargo. There are two types of container loads:
Full Container Load (FCL) fills a standard container either by bulk or maximum weight. FCL Shipments are available in 20-foot (max of 33cbm) and 40-foot (max. 67.3cbm) general purpose containers. Container specifications for maximum volume or weight allowed may vary per shipping line. These containers are subject to considerably less handling as they are loaded in full.
Less Container Load (LCL) does not fill a standard container or does not meet the FCL minimum. LCL shipments are usually combined with other shipments from other shippers/suppliers to fill a container and lessen the cost of shipping.
