When shipping a container to Vietnam, you have the option of FCL (a full container load) or LCL (groupage, or a less-than-container load).
Shipping volume is an important determinant here. Volume that is equal to at least half of a container calls for a full container load (FCL). A 20-foot container can ship 10 standard pallets, while a 40-foot container carries 22 standard pallets.
Whatever the volume of shipment, FCL is also the best way to avoid any risk of damage to your goods that may be caused by contact with other exporters' goods.
Groupage-a shared container (LCL)-is otherwise a good and economical choice that requires you to pay only for the shipping space you use. Consult iContainers for rates and other important information.
Under certain circumstances, air freight may be more appropriate to your needs than ocean freight, particularly if you have a tight schedule or an urgent shipment. Air freight comes with some limitations in terms of volume and weight; iContainers provides a calculator to help you determine whether this is the right option for you.
