Our service for full container loads is based on shipping with first-class carriers. We ensure the timely provision of the required shipping capacity, flexibility, reliability and frequent departures on all routes.
In most cases, consignees choose FCL transport when they have enough cargo to fill an entire shipping container. However, some people choose to reserve an entire container even if their cargo will not completely fill it. There are several reasons you may want to choose FCL for your cargo.
Benefits of Using FCL Include:
- Cost-Effective Shipping for Large Loads: Shipping rates are typically lower for FCL, making this the most economical choice for large loads (typically defined as 12 or more pallets).
- Easier Tracking: Because your FCL freight is all in one place, it’s easy to track it as it travels from port to port.
- Better Security: FCL is more secure because there are fewer stops and fewer shipping agents opening the container.
- Goods Will Arrive Together: With FCL, all the goods in your order will arrive together, which can make the unpacking and transfer process faster.
- Faster Unloading Time: Because your FCL is under the account of just one carrier and one consignee, customs can usually process the transaction relatively quickly using the bill of lading. Once the cargo has been processed, it can be unloaded and will continue on to its final destination.
