    Full Container Load (FCL) or Less than a Container Load (LCL)-Groupage

    Before booking your ocean freight transportation to Singapore, let us advise you about the possible options: Full Container Load (FCL) or a Less than a Container Load (LCL) - Groupage.
    FCL is the right choice for exporters with a cargo volume of 10 or 21 standard American pallets or multiples, as the standard 20 and 40-foot containers hold 10 or 21 containers of this type, respectively. The American pallet is 39.37 in. wide and 47.24 in. long. However, if you are much worried for the possibility that your cargo may be contaminated or damaged in case of sharing the container with other traders' goods, you can also choose this option to get peace of mind. Using an FCL exclusively for you is the best decision.
    On the contrary, if you cargo volume doesn't fill up a container, we suggest choosing "groupage", which is sharing a container with other traders. This modality (LCL) will allow saving on shipping costs as you only pay for the space used by your cargo. Remember that FCL is a cost-effective solution when you are able to fill up more than half of a container.
