FCL (Full Container Load) ocean freight is the preferable mode of transportation if the volume of transportation reaches a suitable capacity utilisation. Furthermore, we at Glottis ensure the utilisation of a specialised container thereby providing complete transparency, a high degree of control, and a safe supply chain. In addition, we provide LCL and consolidation services.
The shipper is in charge of cargo packaging and container
LCL (Less than container load) refers to low-volume maritime freight shipments that do not require full container capacity. In this service, multiple shipments from various clients are bundled to form a “consolidation,” allowing for cost savings. Additionally, LCL ocean freight is an excellent cost-effective option for less time-sensitive airfreight shipments, not only lowering expenses but also decreasing your environmental imprint.

What additional services does Glottis provide with sea shipping?
Glottis is much more than a sea freight forwarding company. We provide a wide variety of services globally in almost every mode, including barge, ground, and rail.
Additionally, our specialists in international logistics are prepared to work with you to create a sea shipping system that incorporates purchase order administration, landed pricing, packaging options, and permit management.
How do FCL and LCL differ from one another? Which shipping option is better for me?
Ocean freight shipping provides a safe way to move significant quantities of freight, with options that can handle different cargo quantities. Two of these options are FCL and LCL shipping.
While LCL shipments pack the goods of multiple shippers into a container, FCL shipments pack the goods of single or multiple shippers as part of buyer consolidation into a container.
A company’s choice of shipping is influenced by its operational requirements, inventory requirements, and other factors like cost and commodity type. In contrast to FCL, which is best for bulk and high-volume products, LCL enables you to have a smaller, more flexible product inventory.
