FCL Options for Simplified Delivery and Cost Control
Full container delivery services simplify your logistics and lower your freight costs.
FCL shipping solutions, when executed correctly, greatly reduce the risk of cargo damage while in transit, lower overall freight costs, and put you in control of your own logistics. Many Interlog customers have seen significant reductions in transit time through using FCL shipping methods. Consolidating freight into a single container streamlines the shipping process by bypassing the usual stops and consolidation centers involved in LCL freight.
Shipping freight in a full container allows you to skip the consolidation and deconsolidation processes involved in a typical LCL shipment. In other words, your cargo moves as fast as the carriers do – no unnecessary stops or additional work involved.
If you have enough cargo to fill at least half of a 20′ TEU, you’ll see major cost savings with FCL shipping methods. FCL removes the charges associated with consolidation and deconsolidation of cargo that’s usually distributed between all shippers who have cargo in a container.
FCL shipments have less stops while in transit. Since there is no need for consolidation or deconsolidation of multiple shippers’ cargo, there is significantly less opportunity for your freight to get damaged. Less vendors fingerprint your cargo, which also makes vendor accountability easier in the unlikely event of damage.
Challenge and redefine your current logistics strategy. Properly executed FCL solutions can save you time and money.
Our team are experts at devising unique logistics solutions to make FCL work for otherwise strictly LCL shippers. With the right balance of inventory practices, timing, and planning, converting an LCL habit to an FCL solution can give you more routing, pricing, and timing options. Talk to our experts about how it can apply to your situation.
