Less Than a Container Load

LCL Less than Container Load is  for customers who don't have enough cargo to fill a whole ocean container.

LCL freight is the right solution for an economical way of shipping your freight if you have less than around 10 cbm.

We have departures every week, so it is a flexible mean of transportation as well.

When shipping LCL cargo, the freight must be properly packaged since the boxes will be loaded along with the freight required to fill up a complete container.

Are a result fragile items should always be crated to avoid damages.


Break Bulk

Break bulk cargo is general, non containerized cargo and usually ships as individual pieces because of its over dimensional size and weight.

Even though most of the sea shipments  are containerized, some cargo still needs to be shipped as a break bulk.

Oversized and heavyweight equipment which cannot fit in ocean containers, has to be considered break bulk cargo.
