Our ocean freight service is an efficient and financially viable option for transporting heavy packages or large items overseas. We offer both FCL and LCL shipping.
FCL Shipping FCL stands for Full Container Load. This means you will have a shipping container assigned exclusively to your consignment, and your freight will not be mixed with other shippers. FCL logistics is ideal for small to medium-sized businesses that ship occasionally or regularly. It makes sense when you require international transportation for a high volume of goods.
LCL Shipping LCL means Less than Container Load or consolidation. It enables you to ship smaller amounts of cargo that’s not of a large enough volume to make FCL a viable option. This means your cargo is combined with other shipping consignments headed for the same destination. Unlike FCL, which usually has a flat rate per container, LCL is charged based on the volume set in cubic metres. LCL shipping is a cost-effective solution for smaller shipments as you only need to pay for the volume space used.
Air freight refers to airport-to-airport package shipping. If you want to save time, money, and administration effort, choose Packaging Depot's air freight forwarding service. Air freight is a safe and efficient way for immediate transportation. It always has a high value-to-weight or has a severe timeline. Sending freight through air is the quickest method of international shipping but can still take a few days because of the need for export and import customs clearance. This option is chosen mostly due to its quick transit time and usually reliable scheduled arrival and departure times.
