Lines Shipping International FAQ

FCL is an acronym used in logistics, which means 'Full Container-Load'. This means goods from a single shipper occupy the entire container. LCL means 'Less than Container-Load'. LCL is used when a single shipper's goods do not completely fill an entire container. When this happens, in order to fill an entire container, space in the container is split between orders and/or shippers.

Sea freight is a common method of transporting goods across the world using large cargo ships. There are a number of different forms of sea freight, including:

1) Full container load (FCL) in which a single shipment is loaded into a container which might be from 20 – 45 feet long.

2) Less than container load (LCL) where several shipments share a container and are split at their destination.

3) Roll on roll off (RORO) in which lorries and other vehicles drive onto the ship with their cargo, are safely secured for the journey, and then simply drive off at their destination.

4) Dry bulk shipping, used for commodities such as metals or aggregates, which can be dropped or poured into the hold of a ship rather than being loaded on in containers.

Advantages are :
1. Cost effective method of shipping for heavy or large loads, some 4-6 times cheaper than air freight on average.
2. You can ship bigger items such as furniture, and even vehicles by sea.
3. Specialist operators can ship goods from more or less anywhere in the world using sea freight.
4. Sea freight is typically more environmentally sound than air freight.

Disadvantages are:
1. Time consuming – it can take several weeks to move goods using sea freight.
2. The pricing structure makes it less suited to small loads, which can sometimes be more cost effectively sent by air or using a courier.
3. Sea freight is more prone to damage during transit compared to air freight – although in reality it’s highly unlikely that entire containers will be lost overboard or seized by pirates.

Road Freight is the physical process of transporting cargo by road using motor vehicles. In this case, road is a lane/route between the point of departure and the point of destination. Compared to other types of transport system such as sea and air, the cost of maintaining roads is cheaper. Road freight can be in certain cases, the only way of transport in/to rural areas where other mode of transports is not available.

Warehouses are spacious and well-protected buildings used for organized storage of goods. Supply chain management for domestic as well as international trading is simplified thanks to warehousing. For a commercial shipper, the condition of your shipment is crucial as it impacts the value of your goods. Packing and warehousing ensure that your consignment is delivered in the best condition possible, whether your purpose is commercial or residential.
