City Sprint LCL Shipping
No matter how large your freight or how urgent your need is, City Sprint has a variety of services to meet your trucking needs…or we’ll customize one for you!
When choosing LCL shipping, be it for an import or export, your cargo is consolidated with other shippers’ goods to fill a container.
LCL transport is facilitated by a non-vessel operating common carrier, also known as an NVOCC. NVOCCs reserve full containers from shipping companies based on traffic volume forecasts to different destinations. They are then able to offer space in the containers for small LCL shipments at a reduced rate compared to FCL shipping.
When shipping to secondary ports, your cargo may be offloaded at a transshipment point, where it will wait for more cargo to fill the container before continuing to its final destination. Understanding its timeline and how LCL shipping works may help prevent unexpected problems.
