FCL

FCL stands for Full Container Load. This indicates that a shipper occupies an entire container. There are two kinds of FCL; one that is packed by the shippers themselves and one that is packed by a contractor in our warehouse and then brought into the CY. At the discharge point, FCL cargo is delivered to a consignee from a shipping line at the CY.

LCL

LCL signifies Less than Container Load. LCL cargo is received by a carrier and consolidated into a container together with other freight at the CFS, then unloaded from the container and delivered to a consignee at the destination CFS. Because of this, LCL is also called CFS Cargo.
