LCL (Less than container load) Definition

An LCL (Less than container load) is a term used in the shipping industry to describe the transport of smaller ocean freight transports. An LCL does not require the full capacity of an entire ocean container and is usually less than 20 cubic meters. As a freight forwarder, we put together consolidations so we can ship smaller loads at more affordable prices. An LCL (Less than container load) is a good option for anyone transporting boxes or a lightweight overseas. LCL (Less than container load) shipments are shipped via ocean freight, so if the consignment is time sensitive, then air freight may be a better option.
