What Is Consolidated/
Shared Container Shipping?

Consolidated or shared container shipping is a cost-effective method of freight forwarding that allows multiple shippers to transport their shipments by sharing a container. This is an ideal choice for individuals and businesses without enough goods to fill an entire shipping container. Instead of paying for an entire container with unused space left over, shippers can consolidate goods with other consignees to maximize space and reduce costs.

LCL is the preferred method of shipping for safe overseas cargo transportation on a budget as the goods are shipped in an enclosed container and the cost is shared.

Benefits Of Consolidated/Shared Container Shipping (And When To Use It)

Less Than Container Load (LCL) shipping is an economical alternative to Full Container Load shipping. Customers pay a modest surcharge to package their small shipment into a container without paying the cost of a full container. It’s the perfect choice for businesses that don’t want to keep a lot of inventory on hand. This is also a faster method of overseas transportation as you don’t need to wait until you have enough goods to fill an entire container. Multiple shipments are sent together, thus saving time and money.
Choosing this shipping method has many advantages. If you’re unsure whether to choose LCL, take a look at the benefits.


Lower Rates

Consolidated shipping combines multiple shipments heading to similar locations into one container. This reduces costs as you only pay for the space your goods take up instead of the entire container.



Consolidated shipping allows you to transport your vehicles and other accessories overseas in an enclosed container, thus ensuring they remain safe from external elements that could cause damage in transit.


Reduced Financial Exposure

When you send smaller shipments, you can adjust the order if the marketplace is not favorable to your business. As a result, you’re less financially exposed to market fluctuations.


More Savings

Businesses that ship small amounts of goods usually choose consolidated shipping to match orders on demand. Having smaller reserves on hand saves on inventory and warehousing costs.


Increased Consistency

We send LCL shipments weekly, thus offering you a consistent schedule to load your goods straight from the production line or showroom and a tentative delivery date.


Improved Time Management

Using shared or consolidated container load shipping improves the flexibility of your shipping needs and makes your orders timelier. This reduces wait times for transporting small loads.
