Full container services for international logistics companies
FCL is the acronym for “Full Container Load”, commonly known as “full container” or “full container cargo”. FCL container cargo, as opposed to LCL container cargo, refers to a large shipment of goods that can fill one or more containers. In maritime container transportation, the most common container specifications are 20GP (commonly known as a 20-foot container), 40GP (commonly known as a 40-foot container), and 40HQ (commonly known as a 40-foot high container). A 20GP can hold approximately 28 cubic meters (CBM) of goods, a 40GP can hold approximately 56 cubic meters of goods, and a 40HQ can hold approximately 68 cubic meters of goods.
LCL container goods are packed and unpacked by LCL companies (freight forwarders). FCL container goods are different. Generally, the shipper is responsible for packing and sealing the FCL container goods, while the consignee is responsible for unpacking and unloading. But the shipper can also simply deliver the goods to the container yard and entrust a freight forwarder or professional packing company to pack them, which is commonly known as “internal loading”. The operation method for FCL container cargo is: a shipment of goods from one shipper, due to the large volume, is more cost-effective to ship as a full container. The shipper directly orders and consigns the cargo to the shipping company, or the shipper entrusts a freight forwarder to book and consign the cargo to the shipping company. Among them, it is extremely rare for the cargo owner to directly book space with the shipping company, and most of them book space with the shipping company through the freight forwarder.
