Full Container Load (FCL) or Less Container Load (LCL)
The LCL means sharing the space of one container with other clients. This normally means that the booking price will be determine by the volume and weight of your shipment. Normally a LCL is cheaper than booking a FCL. If you think that the volume of the merchandise shipped will not reach the half of the capacity of the container, LCL will always be the cheapest alternative.
However, if you are thinking about shipping 6 or 12 standard pallets, the best option would be booking your own 20 or 40 ft container, with a storage capacity to hold 6 and 12 pallets respectively. If the features of your load require special treatment or at least not getting in contact with other merchant's goods, we will always recommend the FCL service.
