FCL or LCL for your ocean freight to Denmark

Your options when sending cargo to Denmark are a less-than-container load (LCL), also known as groupage, or full container load (FCL).

If your shipment consists of at least six standard pallets, you’re considered to have a full container load (FCL). Six pallets equal a bit more than half a 20-foot container load. 20-foot containers accommodate 10 standard pallets, while 40-foot containers can take 22 standard pallets.

FCL is also a good choice if you wish to minimize any risk of damage to your merchandise that could be caused by contact with other exporters’ goods.

We recommend groupage (LCL) if sharing a container is a viable option for you, as it requires you to pay only for the container space you need. Talk to iContainers for rates and other important details.
