LCL (less than container load) is a mode of shipping via ocean. Consider shipping LCL when you don’t have enough cargo to fill up an entire container.
When transporting a consolidated cargo, you do not need to worry about returning the container after its delivery. Since along with your cargo in the container the goods of other shippers are transported, the return of the container becomes a problem of the container line. Senders of LCL need only worry about the cargo that is to be transported, and more about nothing.
It should be noted that dangerous goods are never accepted for the transport of consolidated cargoes (falling under the IMO classification and having UN number – that is, flammable, combustible, explosive, radioactive, etc.) Learn more about our shipping services by calling us at 718-599-3400 today.
