Sea Cargo

LCL – Less than Container Load

With our consolidation service, you only pay for the space you need. Professional handling at every hub is guaranteed thanks to our highly trained LCL teams.

Our part load service is ideal for smaller shipments. By sharing vessel space with other shippers, you can achieve faster delivery and lower inventory stocks. We make optimal use of ocean carrier services and port infrastructures to minimize stopovers and provide maximum speed, security and flexibility.

With our LCL solutions, you benefit from a variety of buyers' and shippers' consolidation options, including multi-country consolidation. Our dedicated teams handle all pre- and on-carriage and customs procedures to avoid delays and arrange smooth processes at every port and inland terminal. Thanks to constant monitoring and strict compliance with the latest supply chain security management standards, you can rest assured that your cargo is in good hands. The fully integrated supply chain management platform SPOT ensures planning security, efficient processes, uniform quality standards, and complete transparency from collection to final destination.

With our cargo-partner owned direct consolidation services, we ship your LCL cargo directly from various origin location CFS (Container Freight Stations) to final destination CFS without devanning the cargo at seaports, which reduces the risk of damage during unloading and reloading. On traffic lanes where we do not offer our own consolidation services, we link our surface transport to carefully selected, globally active NVO partners. Depending on the urgency of your LCL shipment, you can choose between ECONOMY, PRIORITY and EMERGENCY processing. In our LCL divisions, we often handle PRIORITY routings, while EMERGENCY shipments are usually handled by our airfreight departments.
