FCL and LCL Shipping

Ocean freight shipping presents a reliable means of large-volume transportation, with options designed to accommodate varying cargo sizes. Two of these include Full Container Load (FCL) and Less Than Container Load (LCL) shipping.

FCL refers to shipments for which all goods in a container are owned by one party, while LCL involves multiple shippers’ goods packed together.

Business needs and inventory requirements determin a company’s shipping decision, along with factors like cost and commodity type. For instance, LCL allows you to maintain a smaller, more adaptable product inventory, while FCL is ideal for bulk items and large-volume products.

Example:

 

Kobi21 has LCL shipping calculation module..With this module, the total volume of your loads is calculated. And whichever country you are in, the shipping price is added in the cart.

 

How is it calculated? 

 

1- Quantity

2- CBM (m3)

3- Country

4- Country fee x CBM = LCL Price

5- DHL price
