Container Freight

FCL shipping or LCL shipping?

Whether you are selecting Full Container Load Shipping (FCL) or Less than Container Load Shipping (LCL), evaluating the current market pricing is critical with the ever changing conditions of sea container shipping. Our team in Melbourne routinely search for the best pricing to present, with many avenues and options to improve the profitability and success of your business.

If you aren’t sure whether you should choose Full Container Load Shipping or Less than Container Load Shipping, our team can discuss and help you come to a decision. Either option provide different benefits regarding price point, volume of cargo, and the urgency of the shipment.

Less than Container Load (LCL) Shipping is typically the preferred option for low-volume cargo where there is the option for a flexible transportation schedule. Full Container Load Shipping is suitable for shipments that are urgent or need to be delivered before a specific date. FCL shipments often attract lower fees overall, meaning the cost per item is lower, whilst providing greater security as only your goods will be stored in the container.

We can provide additional services using industry leading software to complement our sea freight services, including cargo tracking and reporting, document uploads, online invoices, and many other IT solutions.
