    Full Container Load (FCL) or Groupage (LCL)

    If you are shipping a container to Bremen, you will need to engage either a full container load (FCL) or a shared container, known as groupage (a less-than-container load, or LCL).
    Any shipment of six or more standard pallets will fill more than half of a 20-foot container, which can take a maximum of ten standard pallets; in such cases, we encourage you to choose a full container load (FCL). (A 40-foot container can carry up to 22 standard pallets.) We also recommend that you choose FCL if you want to keep your goods from coming in contact with those of other exporters, and thus minimize the risk of contact damage.
    If you do not need to keep your goods isolated, a shared container (LCL)-known as groupage-is a good choice for shipments of fewer than six standard pallets. Sharing means you pay only for the space you use. Consult iContainers for rates and other important information.

    Ocean Freight Routes to Bremen

    • Ports of Bremen
    • The ports of Bremen are among Europe's most important. They are managed by Bremenports GmbH & Co. KG, a private company that manages public funds and property, and serve both Bremen and Bremerhaven.
      Almost 80 percent of all the port's freight comes through Bremerhaven, which specializes in container vessels, car carriers and refrigerated fruit carriers. Bremen, for its part, focuses on handling conventional general cargo and heavy lift, as well as bulk cargo. The terminals in both locations handle almost all kinds of freight, and are extremely well-connected and well-managed.

    Air Freight Transportation to Bremen

    Good that require quick shipment may be better-suited to air freight than ocean freight. Air freight does impose some limitations on the volume and weight of shipments; consult the iContainers calculator to help you determine whether this is the right option for you.
