The answer to this really does depend on your requirements.
This is typically the best choice for larger shipments, or when there is a need for the goods to arrive more quickly than a LCL option. FCL shipments are more secure, as once the container is closed a numbered seal is placed on it, ensuring that it is not opened until it arrives at the end destination. For FCL shipments, you are the only customer in the container, and based on how much you want to ship there are a few options.
20ft Standard Shipping Container
40ft Standard Shipping Container
40ft High Cube Shipping Container
This is a great option for when you do not have enough goods to fill out an entire container, but want to take advantage of the cost savings associated with ocean freight shipping. Your goods will be put into a custom-made crate, and then consolidated into a container with other customers who are also shipping to the same location. You only pay based on the volume your goods took up in the container (which is how you unlock the cost savings), but the trade-off is that timelines are usually longer than FCL due to the consolidation process. We currently only service select destinations for LCL shipments, so give us a call to discuss your needs.
