WHAT TYPES OF SHIPMENT MODE ARE THERE?
LESS THAN CONTAINER LOAD
Less than container load (LCL) is a mode of shipment popularly used in Indonesia. As the name suggests, it describes shipping goods in a container that’s not full.
Your freight forwarder will group your cargo with other LCL goods in the same container. In order for this to happen, the cargo must be going on the same route and port of destination. This is the main reason why LCL is also known as group shipping. Apart from that, the cargo within the shipping container will be owned by different groups of shippers.
One advantage of LCL is that it is more affordable when compared to other modes of payment. It is because you will need to share the container with other shippers, thereby cutting the entire shipment cost.
FULL CONATINER LOAD
Full container load (FCL) is the ideal mode of shipment if your planned shipment consists of goods that can accommodate one full container load.
Unlike LCL, the goods in a FCL cargo container is owned by a single shipper. However, take note that the container does not need to be fully loaded if you choose to go with this shipping method. You are also given the option of making it half or quarter loaded.
This is a cost-effective option if you plan to transport items that are more than 15 cubic meters. It is beneficial because of its faster transit time than LCL and its high level of security. Expect your cargo to be less prone to damage if you choose this route.
