Improve and expedite delivery and pickup
If you’re doing FCL shipping — especially if you’re a business that has customers who rely on fast, flexible shipping according to their own schedules rather than yours — you may have occasionally encountered a challenge or two in delivery and pickup.
Oftentimes, a container used in an FCL shipment must be returned to a port within about a week. This can create a relatively short window of time in which to deliver goods to customers, and some customers may require that a delivery appointment be set in advance, or they otherwise may not always be able to fit you in.
However, LCL shipments usually make an additional stop for deconsolidation (Approved can handle this for you as well), which gives you more time to both connect with customers and to get your goods to their final destination. You’ll have a steady stream of inventory to keep your shelves stocked and your customers satisfied.
LCL freight is ideal for the business that requires flexibility in how often and how much cargo it ships overseas, and in how — and, as importantly, when — it delivers cargo to its storefronts and job sites.
