What is FCL in Export Import?

FCL stands for Full Container Load. Exporters who have goods to pack in one full container load book a full container load (FCL) to receive their cargo. The term FCL refers to the complete contents of the container, usually owned by one shipping company. Learn export and import online to know important terms of international business.  The cargo in an FCL owned by one shipper does not need to have fully loaded cargo in the container. Even if the cargo in the container is half-filled or simply quarter-filled if booked by one shipper under one shipment, that said shipment will be called an FCL shipment.  FCL is less likely to result in damaged goods since the container contains only your goods. FCL is delivered faster than LCL.   However, FCL is cheaper per unit. Also, import fees are fixed, meaning that they don’t change with volume so that payment is the same regardless of size.   Because it will be shipped to a single consignee, the cargo can be of any type of product, like toys, commodities, or machinery.   Have you figured out what is FCL?
