1.3. Distinguish FCL and LCL in sea freight from Qingdao to Vietnam

For everyone to use sea freight from Qingdao to Vietnam more effectively, I would like to share something about the terms of FCL and LCL; how are they different?

What are FCL and LCL?

  • FCL is an abbreviation of the phrase "Full Container Load" or can be understood as the exclusive transportation of full containers for one customer. Goods are packed and transported in 1 or more containers (depending on the quantity) from the sender to the receiver.
  • LCL is an abbreviation of the phrase "Less than Container Load" or can be understood to mean that the cargo is not loaded enough for one container. More specifically, this term describes how to transport goods when the shipper does not have enough goods to pack a full container but needs to be combined with other shipments. At that time, the service company will combine many LCL shipments, arrange, classify and pack them into containers for transportation from the loading port to the destination port. Such consolidation is called consolidation, or consolidation. Retail shipping charges will be calculated based on a percentage (%) of each shipper's quantity, which means that the shipping fee will be pro-rated.

When to use FCL or LCL shipping service?

When to use FCL or LCL shipping service?

  • If you have a considerable quantity of goods, goods with a high load, fragile goods, high-value goods, and dangerous chemicals, you should transport FLC goods: Full containers from Qingdao to Vietnam. The use of full containers for transportation does not take time to collect goods, does not lose goods, and is easy to store, although the cost will be a bit higher if your quantity is not significant.
  • If your cargo has a volume of 1cbm - 15cbm, is dry, non-perishable, does not need to be urgent, etc., you can consider LCL shipping services. Your goods are still transported safely and with guaranteed quality; although the time may be longer, the risk is higher than FCL, but the cost will be much lower.
