APCs FCL (full container load) product offers our customers complete door-to-door services. We deliver competitive solutions with our core ocean-carrier partners, ensuring our customers global coverage.

When Should I Choose FCL?

If you have a large shipment to make, FCL will be the right choice for you, providing you with a cost-effective solution that gets your sea freight exactly where it needs to be, all in one piece. This freight forwarding solution is also ideal for private shipments, where you do not want your merchandise or goods to be shipped alongside other products that don’t belong to you.


LCL Shipping Service

APC also offers weekly LCL (less than container load) shipping services to many destinations worldwide. No matter what size, as long as it fits inside the container, we will be able to assist you. APC runs its own LCL service network every week from and to many destinations around the world. With scheduled direct departures,the shipment is taken care of by our experts, who ensure that you get both a competitive and cost-effective solution, so that you can relax.

What's the difference between FCL and LCL shipping? Which ocean shipping service is right for me?


The main difference between FCL (full container load) and LCL (less than container load) is the amount of space that is used in a container. FCL is used for larger shipments that can fill an entire container, while LCL is for smaller shipments that cannot fill a full container. Choosing between FCL and LCL depends on the size and volume of the shipment. If you have a large shipment, FCL would be the more cost-effective option as it allows you to fill the entire container and avoid sharing space with other shipments. However, if you have a smaller shipment, LCL would be the more suitable option as it allows you to share the cost of the container with other shipments, making it a more cost-effective solution.


What factors affect the cost of ocean freight forwarding?

The cost of ocean freight forwarding is affected by several factors, including the type and size of the shipment, the distance and route of transportation, the weight and volume of the cargo, and any additional services that may be required.


  • The type of shipment, whether it is full container load (FCL) or less than container load (LCL), can impact the cost as FCL allows for more efficient use of space and may be more cost-effective for larger shipments.

  • The distance and route of transportation also play a role in determining the cost, as longer distances and more complex routes may require more resources and time.

  • The weight and volume of the cargo also affect the cost, as heavier and larger shipments may require additional handling or equipment, resulting in higher costs.


What is included in APC's LCL express ocean shipping service?
