Your shipping volume can help determine the most suitable choice when shipping a container to Peru. There are two options: groupage (LCL), that is, a shared container, or a full container load (FCL). A 20-foot container accommodates 10 standard pallets, while a 40-foot container can take 22 standard pallets; if you have a shipment of at least six standard pallets, FCL is what you need.
If your shipping volume is smaller, but you need to keep your goods isolated from other exporters' goods, a full container load is also for you.
Groupage is a cost-effective option if your shipping volume is small and sharing a container is acceptable. That way, you will pay only for the shipping space you need. Consult iContainers for rates and other important information.
If you are working against a short deadline or your shipment is urgent, air freight may be more appropriate for your needs than ocean freight. iContainers provides a calculator to help you determine whether this is the right option for you, as air freight imposes some limitations in terms of volume and weight.
