There are a variety of ways you can do container shipping. You can fill the container up in a variety of ways, which will be described below.
Container Shipment via FCL Shipping
FCL means Full Container Load. It means that if you have a lot of goods, you can book the entire container, and the whole container will be reserved for your shipment. That also means you won’t be charged in cubic metres. You will be charged per container, and the whole container will go directly from the source to your desired destination.
If you are in charge of a big organization, you should always book FCL as it is overall cheaper and less time consuming than other loads. In Full Container Load, the container will only contain your shipment, and no other load belonging to any other shipper will be shipped together with your container.
Pakistan Cargo 4U gives you the option of choosing a Full Container Load container. We have the best sea cargo rates for FCL, and we will ensure that all of your valuables will stay safe and will be delivered in due time.
Container Shipment via LCL Shipping
If the quantity of goods that you possess are not in a huge amount, you can always use the LCL container shipping service. LCL stands for less than Container Load. It means that you will not be allotted the entire container but will be charged for a portion of the container. The price is charged on the basis of how many cubic metres of space your cargo takes.
LCL shipping has key disadvantages. The main disadvantage is that your container will also contain goods of other shippers. The container company guarantees that your shipment will be delivered to you but the container will also be delivering other stuff to other countries as well most probably. So, there is a high chance of a significant delay in your delivery.
If you are running a small or medium scale business, you probably don’t need to book a full container. You can easily use LCL at that time as that would be the best option for you at that moment. Booking by LCL is more complex than FCL due to the price variance based on the weight and space in cubic metres that your objects carry.
Pakistan Cargo 4U is the best option for you if you want to send your shipment using LCL. We will make sure that all of your belongings will be delivered to you in a timely fashion. Pakistan Cargo 4U supports LCL shipping, and all of your belongings will carry to your desired destination safely.
20 Feet Container Shipping
Normally, there are two sizes of shipping containers available in which you can do your container shipping. The first is a 20 feet size container. The overall capacity of this container is 33 metre cube. The total weight of the container itself is over 2 tons, while it can carry over 28 tons of cargo inside it. There are many kinds of 20 feet containers like standard, flat-track and open top.
Sending 40 Feet Container
40 feet containers are larger in size than 20 feet containers and can carry more cargo weight as compared to other containers. The size of the 40 feet containers is over 3.5 ton, and their maximum capacity is 67 cubic metres. If you want to send your shipping in either a 40 feet container or a 20 feet container, Pakistan Cargo 4U is the best portal to do so.
Advantages of Container Shipping
Container shipping has several advantages. The main advantage of container shipping is price. Shipping via container has a very low cost as compared to other means of shipping. The goods that are in the container are also documented, hence making this a lot swifter and convenient for the customs as well.
Another advantage of container shipping is protection from a variety of factors. Once the container is filled with goods and is closed, things like bad weather cannot affect the goods in the container at all. The container protects goods from inclement weather, fire and theft.
It also saves the goods from frequent handling of the goods hence protecting them further, and ensuring that the goods remain safe and protected during their journey from the source to their intended destination. The container is also very flexible and versatile, and can also be used to transport a wide variety of goods easily.
