What is the difference between LCL and FCL?


FCL (Full Container Load) refers to a shipment where all the container’s contents are owned by a single party. FCL is ideal for bulk shipments as you are paying for the use of an entire container.
LCL (Less than Container Load) describes a shared container where multiple shipments from multiple shippers are consolidated. Typically, LCL is used for smaller shipments which do not require an entire container and can share the space with other freight.
