When should I opt for FCL shipment?

Cogoport down arrow FAQ

You should opt for FCL shipment in the following cases:

- When your cargo weight is more than 10MT: FCL shipment rates in such a case could be lower than LCL (less than container load) shipment.

- When your shipment is urgent: With FCL shipments you save time that is taken for consolidating an LCL shipment.

- When you want your cargo safe: In FCL, you have the entire container to yourself, hence minimising the damage that can occur when your cargo comes into contact with cargo of another shipment.

FCL vs LCL

Cogoport down arrow FAQ

There are some key differences between LCL and FCL shipments:

FCL - In a Full Container Load (FCL) shipment, the entire cargo container is owned by a single shipper. It’s a more secure way of shipping cargo, since the entire container is used by a single business. This prevents your cargo from coming in contact with and being contaminated by another shipper’s cargo.

LCL - In a Less than Full Container Load (LCL) shipment, the container is shared between two or more shippers. It is the preferred mode for a smaller cargo load and is less expensive too. Cargo is generally packed on wooden pallets, and these pallets are then loaded into the container.
