What is ocean freight LCL (less than container load)(less than container load) s
Release time:2024-01-15

The LCL (less than container load) (Less than Container Load) refers to the carrier (or agent) accepting small bills of lading from the consignor for less than a full container load, and classifying and organizing them according to the nature of the goods and the destination. The principle of consolidating a certain quantity of goods to the same destination into a container is similar to carpooling.

LCL (less than container load) can be divided into direct consolidation or transshipment. Direct consolidation refers to the loading and unloading of goods in LCL (less than container load) containers at the same port, without opening the container until the goods arrive at the destination port, that is, the goods are at the same unloading port. This type of LCL (less than container load) service has a short delivery time, is convenient and fast, and generally strong LCL (less than container load) companies will provide only such services. Transshipment refers to the unloading or transshipment of goods in containers that are not from the same destination port and need to be unpacked or transshipped midway.
The operation process of sea freight consolidation includes inquiry, order acceptance, tracking of goods entering the warehouse, booking, verifying information with customers, providing shipping information to customers, verifying booking number before container loading, making records during container loading, customs declaration, customer verification of sea waybill and bill, payment after departure, destination port customs clearance, and delivery of goods.
The reason for the low price of sea freight consolidation:
In the sea freight LCL (less than container load) quotation, many people find that the LCL (less than container load) price is relatively low. Why is this? The truth is actually very simple. For example, if you ride alone, you need to give 10 yuan, but if you ride with two people, you only need to give 5 yuan. This is the reason for the low price of sea freight consolidation. In some destination ports, it is normal not to charge sea freight because LCL (less than container load) (Less than Container Load) is a collection of goods from multiple different customers, sharing a container. LCL (less than container load) agents will charge specific fees to each customer, such as port maintenance fees, port safety fees, fuel surcharges, container dismantling fees, cargo handling fees, document exchange fees, or other related fees. The fees may vary depending on the country and destination port. These fees are either collected at the port of origin, at the destination port, or on both sides.
