What are the benefits of LCL shipping?


LCL freight is the perfect choice when your cargo doesn’t fill an entire container. You only pay for the space you need, which will result in a better deal for you.


With LCL, there’s no need to wait until you have a full container before you ship—you can ship smaller volumes of goods when you need to to keep your business moving.

Global Reach

LCL shipping offers great coverage around the world, connecting you to new markets and expanding your global reach.

What is the difference between FCL and LCL freight?

Less Than Container Load (LCL) shipping is a widely chosen method in sea freight due to its flexibility and cost-effectiveness, particularly for smaller cargo quantities. The primary distinction from Full Container Load (FCL) shipping lies in the cargo volume each option can handle.

FCL is ideal for larger shipments, as it involves booking an entire container, maximising cost-efficiency. In contrast, LCL enables you to share container space with other shippers, making it an excellent choice for smaller cargo quantities that require immediate shipping without the need for a full container. This flexibility ensures that you can adapt your shipping strategy to meet your specific cargo requirements efficiently.

LCL allows you to share container space with other shippers, making it great for smaller amounts of cargo that you need shipped now.

How does LCL freight work?

There are four general phases your cargo will go through when you choose to ship it via LCL:

  1. Collection. Your cargo is collected and then consolidated with other shipments at a container freight station.
  2. Loading. The consolidated shipments in the LCL container are loaded onto a vessel that is bound for a common destination.
  3. Unloading. Upon arrival, the container is unloaded and your cargo is separated out from the other shipments.
  4. Delivery. Your cargo is then delivered to its final destination.
