Container cargo transfer mode:

Generally speaking, the container transportation is divided into full container and LCL, and therefore has also been on the transfer of different ways, look at the current international practice, to the following four categories to FCL, FCL pick the best, can also give full play to the superiority of the container.

  • FCL/FCLThe shipper delivers the full container to the carrier at the factory or warehouse, and the receiver takes the same FCL at the destination. In other words, the carrier persons are responsible for handover in units of whole boxes. The packing and unpacking of the goods are the responsibility of the shipper.
  • LCL/LCL: The cargo owner delivers the small ticket consignment less than the whole container to the carrier at the container freight station or inland transfer station, and the carrier is responsible for the consolidation and packing (Stuffing, Vanning) is transported to the destination cargo station or inland transfer station, and the carrier is responsible for unpacking (Unstuffing, Devantting). After unpacking, the consignee picks up the goods against the voucher. The packing and unpacking of the goods are the responsibility of the carrier.


Warmly reminder: A 20GP container is 28m³ but that no means you could load bottles of total dimension absolutely 28m³ in. Since glass is fragile, all the bottles must be packed on pallets before shipment. Pls take the extra adding dimension and wasted space into consideration.
