With bulk/less (LCL) or full (FCL) container sea freight, your transport costs are reduced to a minimum.
By choosing direct ocean freight routes or by combining sea and air freight, transit times can be shortened and transport costs can be kept low.
The cooperation with independent sea freight agents lets us to offer a high degree of flexibility, continuity and reliability.
This enables us to minimize or even avoid bottlenecks even with large transport volumes.
FCL — komplette Container
The term ‘FCL’ stands for ‘full container load’ and is used for full container loads. With FCL, the container is brought to the customer for loading and, depending on the transport order, forwarded to the recipient or the port of destination.
Advantages: faster than LCL / partial loads
Disadvantages: depending on the volume, more expensive than partial loads
Transport goods: commercial goods(Enterprises > Enterprises)
& Moving goods / private goods (Home address > port of destination/container terminal)
LCL – Sammelcontainer
The abbreviation’LCL’ stands for ‘Less than Container Load’. Shipments that do not fill an entire container are combined with other general cargo in a collective container. This can save costs in most cases. But it takes more time to summarize/collect the various delieveries.
An LCL shipment is therefore less recommended for time-critical shipments.
In the general cargo area by ocean freight (LCL) only commercial goods can be transported from door to door.
Advantages: cheaper than FCL
Disadvantages: longer transport times
