When you are shipping a container from Ningbo, your goods will take up either a full container load (FCL) or a less-than-container load (LCL)-a shared container.
It's helpful here to note that a 20-foot shipping container holds a maximum of 10 standard pallets, while a 40-foot container can take 22 such pallets. You should consider a full container load if your shipment is equal to six or more standard pallets. FCL is also a wise choice if you want to keep your goods separate from those of other importers.
LCL, or groupage, is a good and money-saving choice if your shipment is less than six standard pallets, and separation of goods isn't a concern. LCL allows you to share a container with other importers, and pay only for the shipping space you use. Contact iContainers for information on rates and other important details.
Over the last decade and a half, China's foreign trade has grown quickly. Ningbo is vital here, as it is one of the country?s busiest and most important commercial ports.
If you're working with a tight deadline, air freight may be a better choice for you than ocean freight. Volume and weight restrictions are subject to some limitations here; please consult the iContainers calculator to help you whether air freight or ocean freight is the right option for you.
