Full Container Load (FCL) and Less than Container Load (LCL) are two common options for shipping cargo across the ocean.  

Full Container Load (FCL) Shipping

FCL shipping involves the exclusive use of an entire shipping container for a single consignee’s cargo. This option is ideal for businesses or individuals with large or bulk shipments from China to Canada. FCL offers several advantages, including:

1. Cost Efficiency: FCL shipping can be cost-effective for larger shipments, as the cost is typically based on the entire container rather than the volume or weight of individual items.

2. Security and Control: Utilizing a dedicated container provides greater security and control over the cargo, reducing the risk of damage or loss during transit.

3. Flexibility: FCL shipments offer flexibility in terms of loading and unloading schedules, as well as the option to seal the container at the origin and only open it at the destination.

Less than Container Load (LCL) Shipping
LCL shipping is suitable for businesses or individuals with smaller shipments that do not fill an entire container. With LCL, multiple shippers’ cargo is consolidated into a single container, offering several benefits:

1. Cost Sharing: LCL allows shippers to share the cost of a container, making it a cost-effective option for smaller shipments from China to Canada.

2. Flexibility: Shippers have the flexibility to send smaller quantities of goods without needing to fill an entire container, providing a more convenient and economical solution.

3. Global Reach: LCL shipments facilitate global trade by enabling businesses and individuals to transport smaller quantities of goods across international borders.
