LCL Shipment (Less Container Load) – This shipping term is used to describe an international ocean freight service that is designed for cargo that takes up much less space than that of a 20- or 40-foot container.

Shipping LCL, your shipment is loaded on a full container load sharing the space with other shipments going to the same destination. This shipment method decreases shipping costs because of the fact you only pay for the space that you use.

The shipment is measured by volume and calculated by cubic feet/ cubic meter. Since ocean freight vessels do not have limit of weight capacity, weight is not a factor in price. This method is extremely cost effective when shipping extra heavy loads.

The shipping transit time does not differ from that of a full container load and is usually faster when using an international moving company such as Movone International.

FCL Shipment (Full Container Load) – This shipping term is commonly used to describe an ocean freight service, which is designed for international shipments of cargo that will have sole and exclusive use of entire container. Sizes vary: 20′, 40′, 40HC
