FCL - Full Container Load is a fully loaded container. It is loaded and sealed directly by the supplier or manufacturer of the goods and is delivered to the destination by one or several types of transport (for multimodal transportation). When calculating transportation costs, a single tariff machine per container is used.
LCL - Less than Container Load - modular container (consolidated). This name is used for the transportation of groupage cargoes, when cargo of several senders are consolidated and transported in one container. This allows you to organize the delivery of small shipments of goods and share the cost of freight transportation among all shippers. It is calculated based on the volume of cargo.
The shipper has the opportunity to pay only for the place in the container, which occupies his cargo, however additional costs are possible - for example, for storing goods in a consolidated warehouse at the port of loading. In addition, labeling is mandatory for cargo - it is necessary to sort the cargo (delimiting it from the goods of other shippers). Marking is applied in two languages (English and Russian) in large print with indelible ink.
LCL cargo handling requires a lot of work - on booking a container, consolidating cargo, unloading at the port of destination, etc. Additional costs that may be incurred during the LCL shipment and increase the shipping costs of the sender:
- Agency fees;
- port service charge;
- security fee;
- the fee for processing of cargo in the terminal;
- for an extradition order and others.
