Ocean Freight Containers

A Full Container Load (FCL) is a standard (20 or 40 ft length) container, depending on the country of origin.  FCL means the loading reaches its allowable maximum weight or full measurement. In practice, FCL in sea freight does not always mean that container shipping companies will pack a container to its full payload or full capacity. Сontainer loading is a difficult procedure and during the loading it is necessary to take great care in order to avoid cargo damage.

Less than Container Load (LCL) is a shipment that is not large enough to fill a standard cargo container.
