Full Container Load (FCL)
FCL is a standard container (20 or 40 ft in length) that is loaded under the account of one shipper and one consignee. FCL shipments attract lower freight rates due to the overall volume and scheduled shipping lanes.
Less Than Container Load (LCL)
LCL is a shipment that is not large enough to fill one standard container, yet still large enough to utilize a partial container. LCL shipments typically have different shippers and consignees sharing one container and is a cost-effective way to consolidate cargo going to the same port or final destination.
Reefer (Refrigerated) refers to temperature-controlled containers. It is most common that Reefer shipments are managed as FCLs of either perishables or heat sensitive goods.
Roll On / Roll Off (RORO)
RORO ships are vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo such as automobiles, semi-trailer trucks, trailers or railroad cars that are driven on and off the ship on their own power. RORO ships have built-in ramps which allow the cargo to efficiently be “rolled” on and off when the vessel is in port.
