Ocean Freight Shipping: FCL VS LCL
Ocean freight shipping is one of the most reliable means of transporting bulk items and it can also accommodate varying cargo sizes. FCL (Full Container Load) and LCL (Less Than Container Load) are the two most common types of shipping options. FTL freight shipping is when one party owns all goods in a container, while LTL freight shipping is where multiple shippers’ goods are packed together.
Shipping decisions are sometimes determined by business needs, commodity type, stock requirements, and cost. For example, FCL is the perfect choice for bulk goods and large-volume products, while LCL is ideal for smaller and more adaptable product inventory.
