Collective cargoes are delivered between One-M-Three and Fifteen-M-Three, delivered in a standard container along with other shippers not to be overpaying for the delivery. It is considered the most cost-effective method to transport small quantities of products.
Full Container Load (FCL) and Less Container Load (LCL) are two terms used in international sea freight transport. FCL and LCL differ in both their definitions and in their usage.
Suppose you require the transportation of an item that is small enough not to be delivered via standard mail. But the cost of air freight is prohibitively expensive for such cargo, and transporting the entire container is far too little. In that case, shipping cargo as a whole is the best option.
Based on the international standard, if the package size is not more than 50% of the volume of the container: a 20-foot standard container 33.2m3 or a combined shipment, an LCL is allowed.
Let's say you came across an appealing item on the Chinese website, purchased it, and now must deliver it to your local city. You apply for delivery, and then we call our overseas agents within the nearest town from the delivery location. They pick up the shipment from your seller and then deliver it to the consolidation warehouse. This warehouse handles the containers dispatched worldwide and even to states that are part of Europe along with the CIS. Consolidation of cargo isn't an easy task. The company you trust to handle to deliver your cargo must have expertise in this field, as they must arrange every stage of transportation.
Use of LCL
If you are transporting a condensed cargo, you don't need to think about returning your container once you have completed it has been delivered along with the shipment in the container, the goods that other shippers have carried. So the container return is a concern of the container line. The shippers of LCL should only be concerned about the cargo to be shipped and not worry about anything else. It is important to note that dangerous items are never permitted for transport in condensed freights, including IMO classification and possessing a UN number - hazardous, flammable and combustible, explosive radioactive, and more.
