Frequently Asked Questions

What is an LCL shipment?

Cogoport down arrow FAQ

LCL (less than container load) or part container load shipments are cargo consignments that do not occupy a full container and need to be grouped with other cargo to fill one shipping container.

How does one determine the cost of LCL shipments?

Cogoport down arrow FAQ

A truck is bookeThe cost of LCL shipments is determined by three major factors:

1. Type of the cargo – such as general cargo, perishable cargo, hazardous cargo, etc.
2. The volume of the cargo.
3. The weight of the cargo.d for you as soon as you book a trucking service with a service provider on Cogoport.

When should I palletise my cargo?

Cogoport down arrow FAQ

Cargo palletisation refers to the process when cargo is put on pallets and secured with straps to stabilise it. Such cargo is easy to handle and transport using machineries such as pallet jacks or forklifts. It is recommended that high-value LCL shipments are put on pallets in order to minimise the risk of damage. Do remember, however, that the cost of shipping might increase because of the extra weight of the pallets.

When should I pick LCL shipping?

Cogoport down arrow FAQ

You should opt for LCL shipping when your cargo weight is less than 10MT.  In this case, LCL shipment rates will be lower than FCL (full container load) shipment rates.

When should I shift from LCL to FCL shipping?

Cogoport down arrow FAQ

You should pick FCL shipping  in the following cases:

When your cargo weighs more than 10MT: You may be better off booking a FCL shipment as FCL rates, in this case, could be lower than LCL rates.

When your shipment is urgent: LCL cargo can take longer than FCL cargo to be shipped because it doesn’t occupy a full container and needs to be consolidated with other cargo before it can be shipped. FCL shipments, however, occupy the entire container so there is no waiting involved here.

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 the (possibly bulkier) cargo of another shipment.
