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
