Full Container Load (FCL)
FCL- The Full Container Load applies to those goods due to their weight, dimensions, handling specifications or urgency. In this type of movement the container will be exclusive for such cargo.
Less Than Container Load (LCL)
LCL- Less Than Container Load (also called groupage or consolidated cargo) occupies a certain space in a container, but they share it with third party cargoes. It applies to loads that because of their weight or dimensions do not fill a complete container so regularly your freight is calculated by the unit of measurement that is higher. In this way, heavy cargo will be quoted by weight and voluminous by volume.
