Shipment Type – FCL/LCL
If you’re intending to ship a large amount of imported goods regularly, then it would be worth looking at FCL, as it enjoys greater economies of scale; If your shipment is relatively small, stick to LCL.
FCL, full container load, which means your goods loading into a full container. You buy large quantity, and the freight cost per unit will be less. It’s from CY (container yard) to CY.
Container Technical Specifications
LCL, less than container load, which means your goods and other importers’ goods consolidating together from the same loading port to the same destination port. You buy the just right quantity suitable for your specific target market. It’s from CFS (container freight station) to CFS.
Please note the minimum billable weight/volume for LCL is 1 cbm or 1 ton.
HIF Logistics’ Suggestion
