With any shipment of containers to Ecuador, the first thing to determine is your shipping volume. Either a full container load (FCL) or a less-than-container load (LCL), also known as groupage, will suit your needs. A full container load (FCL) offers you exclusive use of a shipping container; this is indicated if you want to avoid any risk of damage to your shipment that may be posed by contact with other exporters' goods.
It's also what you'll require if your shipment consists of six or more standard pallets, as a 20-foot container will carry up to 10 standard pallets, while a 40-foot container can accommodate 22 standard pallets.
We recommend a shared container (LCL or groupage) if you're shipping fewer than six standard pallets. Sharing will offer you substantial savings, as you pay only for the space you need.
