LCL (Less Container Load) Shipping

LCL shipping is affordable way to ship smaller shipments across the globe. East Coast Shipping offers solutions for customers who don’t have enough to fill a whole container. When shipping by LCL you are paying for the space you take up inside the container. Goods are generally palletized or put into Lift vans (Shipping Crates) for exporting which adds about 15-25% to your volume so keep that in mind when budgeting.

 

Our LCL consolidation services include providing the most competitive door pick-up pricing, as well as the flexibility of dropping LCL cargo locally at any one of our conveniently located warehouses across the USA.
