LCL shipments are by definition Less than Container Load cargo and is a term used to refer to smaller size shipments that are not large enough to use a Full Container Load (FCL). Your LCL shipment is trucked to one of our purpose built warehouses or to a warehouse or our agent’s warehouse (if we don’t have a warehouse close to your city) where it is palletized / stacked in lift vans and loaded along with other LCL shipments on to a container using forklifts.
