Most Popular LCL Shipments

Palletized LCL

This is the most recommended option because your cargo is transported safely on pallets and allows for easy handling. Truckers also usually require cargo to be palletized for inland moves. → Palletize your cargo to protect your LCL shipment

Loose LCL cargo

With loose cargo, your merchandise is transported in stacked boxes. While it’s a popular option for shipping LCL cargo in Asia, the merchandise is susceptible to damages. → This option compromises the security of your cargo and that of other shippers

Advices For Your LCL Cargo

  • Any material used for packing and transporting your LCL cargo should be wood-treated and the ISPM-15 verified stamps should be visible. This applies to pallets, dunnage, wooden boxes, and any block and brace materials
  • 2 Use high-quality packing material and do so with care as your shipment will be exposed to sudden and brusque movements during handling and transportation.
  • When shipping fragile merchandise, make sure to use appropriate labels and ensure they’re visible. When possible, label all sides of the box.
