LCL stands for “less than container load”.
This simply means that the cargo is not packed into a full container of it’s own.
It can be several pieces such as wooden crates, barrels or drums, poles, pallets, boxes etc. LCL shipments are smaller and are usually anywhere from 40 cubic feet to 500 cubic feet.
When making an LCL shipment, we will advise you as to how the cargo should be packaged based on the final destination and routing.
