  • LCL– Less than Container Load. This shipping model can be chosen when the quantity of your goods is less and you do not require an entire container. While choosing an LCL for your shipment you share an entire container with other customers, which in return serves to be cost-effective. Usually, an LCL shipment takes approximately 90-120 business days for international shipping.
  • FCL– Full Container Load is usually preferred when you have a lot of things to ship and one requires an entire container for the same. As you do not share the container with other customers, the estimated time of arrival for your shipment is approximately 60-90 business days. It does cost more than an LCL but the perk is it usually delivers your goods earlier.
