Less Than Container Load (LCL)

What is Less Than Container Load Shipping?

Cargo loads that are not large enough to fill a sea shipping container to capacity. When it comes to LCL shipping you’ll likely be sharing space within a shipping container with another business so that the container owner can maximize efficiency. You will be billed separately for the use of the container. The total cost of using less than container load shipping will depend on how much of the container you are using and possibly what you’re transporting as well.
