Full Container Loads (FCL)

An FCL contains a shipment in a single container for one consignee. Benefits of an FCL shipment include:

  • Minimized risk of damage or loss
  • Potential for improved transit efficiency
  • Convenient shipment delivery for senders and recipients
  • Streamlined customs clearance and reduced administrative delays
  • Lower per-item freight expenses owing to optimal space utilization
  • Decreased lead times due to quicker loading/unloading

Less than Container Load (LCL)

This grouping of various cargoes into one container makes LCL shipping particularly advantageous for businesses dealing with modest import or export quantities. Opting for an LCL shipment offers several benefits:

  • Cost-effective solution for smaller orders, with charges based solely on the weight and volume of the space used.
  • Tradeway facilitates weekly/biweekly shipping timetables to and from various destinations.

Break Bulk

Break bulk ocean freight continues to play a significant role in international trade, serving as a complement to container shipping. While containerization offers efficiency and standardized transport, break bulk shipping fills the gap for goods that are unsuitable for containers.

Break bulk shipping is particularly suited for irregularly shaped or oversized items, perishable goods, heavy machinery, and commodities that cannot be easily containerized. It offers flexibility in terms of cargo types and sizes, making it an essential choice for industries requiring specialized handling, such as construction, oil and gas, and project logistics.
