Quick help:
  • FCL means a Full Container Load. I.e., shipping cargo in entire multimodal sea freight containers.
  • Currently, we DO NOT provide FCL service for shipping from the USA household goods and personal belongings, but LCL only.
  • If you need to ship an entire container, you should seek a reliable international moving company.
  • Otherwise, if you can pack all your goods in boxes, crate them, or stack them on pallets, our Economy LCL freight service should meet your shipping needs.

Consider LCL instead of FCL

If you can pack all your goods in boxes, crate it, or stack on pallets, then even though your cargo is sufficient to fill a 20-foot container (i.e., the shipping volume of your cargo is about 15 – 25 cubic meters), we'd still recommend you to consider using our Economy LCL Sea Freight Service. You may find that shipping LCL is more convenient and cost-effective than shipping an entire container (FCL).

With LCL, unlike with FCL, shippers are not obligated to load and secure cargo in containers. Unless you are experienced in containers' stuffing, think twice before ordering a full container. With LCL, if you deliver your packed goods to an ocean freight carrier's terminal (CFS - Container Freight Station), then:

  • You eliminate the costs of the container precarriage and return. There are no waiting time fees.
  • You avoid risks of penalties associated with missing cutoffs on the container pickup and return. You are not under the risk of penalties for late documentation submission, etc. Such penalties come directly from steamship lines and can be enormous.
  • You may deliver light, easy to handle, loose cardboard shipping boxes, and have them palletized at CFS. Then, besides the convenience, you transfer ISPM15 compliance in international shipping to the CFS.
  • When your container arrives at the destination, you are not obligated to pick it up, unload it, and return it to a container yard on time.
