Ocean Freight Faqs

There are many advantages for international shipping using LCL ocean freight service, i.e., using shipping services from global transportation companies (Freight Forwarders, NVOCCs, VOCCs) Vs. using FCL (Full Container Load ocean freight service) or shipping service offered by international moving companies
When using LCL shipping services, you need not worry about returning the container after delivery. Because you are sharing the container, it is the concern of the shipping container service company, which is likely to have return trips booked for that LCL container. Shippers using LCL need to be concerned only about the load being shipped and nothing else.
Using FCL service allows you to have the benefit of direct shipping from the shipper door to your warehouse at the Final destination. This will enable shorter transit time compared to the LCL service additional of less handling, which reduces the risk of damage.
