Less-Than-Container-Load (LCL) Cargo

DFL Global both less-than-container load (LCL) and full container load (FCL) for the convenience of our customers. Less that container load is an ocean freight transportation option that businesses may choose when they don’t have a large enough shipment to fill an entire shipping container. Rather than pay for an entire container with unused space, shippers can consolidate goods with other consignees to maximize space and reduce costs.

If you have LCL cargo, let DFL Global handle the move. With our years of experience in freight forwarding and our strong relationships with all major shipping lines, we are able to offer fast and cost-effective shipping. Never worry about missed deadlines with our ocean freight services: we’ll get your cargo to its destination on time.

Benefits of LCL Shipping Include:

For smaller loads, LCL is much more cost-effective than air freight and can still work with relatively tight deadlines. At DFL Global, we work with our freight forwarding network to negotiate highly competitive pricing for your LCL needs.
LCL allows smaller businesses to transport the supply they need to meet consumers’ demands, rather than shipping a larger quantity of inventory that may significantly exceed demand. Businesses can also change their product mix to meet shifting demands without wasting inventory.
When demand is high for a particular product, businesses may not have time to lose gathering a large enough stockpile to make up a full container load. With LCL, it’s possible to ship goods quickly to respond to demand. In fact, DFL Global is able to offer weekly ocean freight transportation upon request.
Businesses that rely on a just-in-time manufacturing model to reduce inventory and improve the flow of goods often choose LCL because it allows them to ship just the parts or goods they need at regular intervals.
