Is an LCL Ocean Freight Solution Right for Your
Business?

Our experts will help you decide. LCL shipping does offer several advantages, including:

  • Only Pay for the Space You Need: If you’re shipping a full container and only using 70-80% of the space, you
    may be wasting space—and money. Additionally, many commercial enterprises are often surprised to learn
    that LCL costs are typically more predictable than FCL costs. We’ll work closely with you to find the right
    solution for your budget.

  • Enjoy Greater Flexibility: Instead of feeling pressure to fill a full container, an LCL solution offers your
    business more options. Our team will help you put together a freight schedule that will keep your operation
    well-supplied, while reducing your inventory carrying and storage costs.

  • Struggle Less with Space Considerations: If you’ve got a tight footprint, shipping LCL means you won’t need
    to worry about finding the room for a full container. Additionally, choosing smaller, more frequent LCL
    shipments means less inventory to manage and less pressure on your storage areas.
