When you are shipping a container to Chile, you have two options: a full container load (FCL) or groupage (LCL).
If the volume of your shipment is equal to at least half a container (at least six standard pallets), then a full container load (FCL) will be your best option. A 40-foot container can carry 22 standard pallets, while a 20-foot container takes 10.
If your shipment volume is small, but your goods must be kept separate from those of other exporters during shipping, FCL is also your best option.
If separation of goods isn't a concern, you may want to opt for groupage-a shared container (LCL). This requires you to pay only for the space you need, and so offers substantial cost savings on shipping. Consult iContainers for rates and other important information.
Air freight imposes some limitations on shipping in terms of volume and weight, but it may be more appropriate to your needs than ocean freight if you are working against a short deadline or with an urgent shipment. iContainers provides a calculator to help you determine whether this is the right option for you.
