Don’t have enough cargo to fill the entire space of a standard container? Looking for a cost-saving international shipping method? Viamar Scilla offers a flexible method of shipping from Canada. Known as Less than Container Load, or LCL shipping, cargoes from different consignors are loaded into a single container space and the cost is divided amongst them. Another advantage is that you don't need to wait until you have enough products to fill a container. For smaller to medium-sized businesses, LCL is often the more cost and logistically-effective method of shipping freight internationally.

LCL is a convenient and cost-effective method of freight forwarding. Here, the consolidator or shipping company arranges a full container, then combines the shipments of other shippers and separates each at the final destination. This is an ideal choice for individuals and businesses without enough goods to fill an entire container. Instead of paying for the full space, shippers consolidate their goods with other consignees to maximize space and reduce costs. It is the safest and preferred mode of overseas shipping as the goods are sent in an enclosed container and the cost is shared.
With LCL you are able to transport smaller amounts of cargo when FCL is not a viable option. For small and medium-sized businesses, it's easier to keep a close watch on the inventory volumes. Instead of a flat rate per container, LCL shipping charges are based on the volume of the container space, which is calculated per cubic metre. Therefore, you only have to pay for the volume needed for your shipment instead of its weight.
With an LCL load, you’ll be paying a much lower rate compared to a full container. Instead of weight, the cargo is charged on volume-based storage space (per cubic meter).
Aside from having a team for scheduling freight pickup, transit and delivery, we also send notifications about the shipping status. This gives you more time to prepare for shipment and delivery.
With FCL, you need to ship a certain volume to make it a viable shipping option; as a small or startup business, needing to buy a large amount of stock may not be feasible.
Unlike FCL shipping, where the goods are delivered to you in a container stuck on the back of a truck, LCL shipments are often palletized using a roller system. This makes unloading easier.
During peak season, when demand for small containers is high and capacity is near full, LCL can be easier to find and faster than FCL or other types of container shipping.
If your business produces in lower volumes then LCL is a more convenient option. You need not worry about producing in high volume to fill the entire container.
