Combine LCL ocean transportation with LTL consolidated truck transportation

A widely used service, less than truckload (LTL) transportation (less than truckload/ “A shipment that occupies less space than is available in a truck or tractor-trailer”) - is extremely advantageous and offers great cost-benefit to importers and exporters as it consolidates multiple loads into one truck and this reduces the costs, as the freight costs are divided among other shippers.


What is unstuffing a container?

Process in which a landed container is unsealed (usually in the presence of customs) and all its contents are taken out. Also called stripping or devanning of container.

When is LCL indicated?

LCL is indicated when a load is not enough to fill a container in its entirety.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of LCL?

This will depend on your strategy! As you will not pay the freight for the entire container, this can be very advantageous, right? Of course this is true when it comes to freight cost, but it is important to remember that your cargo will share space with other goods, so it is important to keep in mind that sensitive and refrigerated cargoes cannot be shipped in this mode because they can be damaged. So here´s a tip: Not all merchandise can be shipped as an LCL, okay?

It is also important to research the regularity of the service as well as the NVOCC that will be hired, since not all of them offer regular LCL cargo routes or worldwide capillarity. Allink relies on the NVOCC business division to make your shipment a great experience. Focus on your core business and leave the rest to us!

What is NVOCC?

Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) is the name given to companies that provide LCL cargo consolidation services. In this mode, goods from different companies that have the same origin and destination in common are placed within the same container. For this consolidation to happen, the NVOCC needs to have a capillary worldwide structure to be able to meet cargo logistics.

Allink has been providing NVOCC services for 25 years, always maintaining neutrality and focus on freight forwarders, Brokerage Houses and customs brokers.

What are the main types of containers?

- Dry standard: Fully closed, it is an equipment widely used to transport general cargo, furniture, clothes, some food, among others. This is the most common type of equipment used worldwide.
- High cube: Also called HC, is like the dry standard but has a slightly higher height.
- Reefer: Also known as refrigerated, it is used when the merchandise needs to have a controlled temperature. Widely used by the pharmaceutical and food industries, among others.
- Open top: the name says, it has an opened roof. It has the same dimensions as a standard dry container, but as it has a canvas, it allows you to place goods that have a height that do not fit in a traditional container. Commonly used to transport machines in general. But beware, usually the cost of this freight is higher, since the shipping line will not be able to place any other containers on top of it to avoid damaging your cargo, and they will charge your company for it.
- Flat rack: It has only the headboards that can be fixed or movable and is commonly used to carry oversized loads.
