There are two types of ocean freight solutions, Less than Container Load (LCL) and Full Container Load (FCL) that you can opt for, depending on the volume and weight of your goods.
When a shipper’s cargo occupies only a part of the space inside a container, it is an LCL shipment. Freight forwarders consolidate cargo from multiple clients, to be sent from and to the same location, inside a single container. This is ideally suitable for you if you are shipping smaller cargo loads. Check out our ultimate LCL guide to understand more.
In this type of shipment, a shipper leases an entire container for his cargo. If you need to ship a large amount of goods that will take up more than half a container, it may also be more economical to choose to ship via FCL. This will also give you exclusive rights to the container and hence more control over how your goods are packed and placed inside it. Read more about FCL shipments here.
Aside from selecting an LCL or FCL shipment, you also need to consider whether your cargo is ‘general cargo’, i.e. it does not require any specific conditions, or ‘special cargo’ that has temperature, size, or other specifications. Accordingly, below are the most commonly used types of containers that you will need to select from -
Dry storage containers
Open top containers
Flat rack containers
Open side containers
