Which Size of Shipping Container Works Best for Me?

It may be challenging to choose from many different options especially if you only want to avail the best product in the market. When it comes to the container, size is what matters most other than its price. And that’s why we are here to guide you in choosing the most accurate container for your shipping need.

Our clients choose between 20ft-40ft. Imagine fitting all the items from a 3-bedroom house inside a 20-ft shipping container. That’s how huge it is. If you want more scenarios to visualize, you can think of fitting 100 pieces of washing machines inside of that particular box size. If you need more space, choose the 40-ft option. It all comes down to how it appears and its capacity to store your items.

If the size is too spacious for you, worry not, for you don’t need to pay the entire container. You are allowed to share container spaces with other customers. This is what we call Less Than Container Load (LCL). Moreover, if the box is just the right fit for your items, it is called Full Container Load.

Take a look at the difference between the two:

LCL – your goods are placed inside a container alongside with others’ items. It is also less costly.

FCL – you are required to pay a higher rate because the container is more secured, and you won’t have to remove other items due to the possibility of it being not favored to be placed beside other people’s goods.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is a Bill of Lading?

The bill of Lading is a transport document that serves as proof of carrier agreement. It exists to serve as both inventory, and contract documents. It is also the receipt document of the transaction. Bill of lading varies in type and form. Some can be issued as negotiable, non-negotiable, and originals. A bill of lading is important and should be kept with care until after custom clearance is concluded. 

What Happens if I Lose the Bill of Lading?

The bill of lading is important in completing your shipping process. Its various types bear equal importance but the order bill of lading bears slightly more relevance. An order bill of lading also serves as a negotiation document, and cargo can only be released upon its presentation. Also, a bill of lading Is used to authenticate the receiver of cargo. If you happen to misplace yours or cannot present it on a required day, there is another way of receiving your cargo without the bill of lading.

● You will be required to make an advert placement that will indicate the loss of the original bill. The advertisement is also expected to invalidate the previous or missing bill.
● You will be required to write a letter of indemnity to the carrier. This will indemnify the carrier from potential losses resulting from the release of cargo.
● You will be required to get a court order that will authorize the delivery of cargo.
● You may be required to pay attorney fees to the shipping line or carrier.
● You may also choose to share the guarantee with a bank. This way the bank will issue the letter of indemnity on your behalf to share the potential or risk.

What’s the Difference Between a Freight Forwarder, a Freight Broker, and an NVOCC?

Freight forwarders are important agents who assist cargo owners with storage, movement, negotiations, and processing of storage documents. They also link cargo owners with shipping lines or carrier companies that will transport cargo.

Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) are shipping lines or carrier organizations. They assist the cargo owner in transporting items from one port to another. They own vessels and are contracted by a cargo owner or freight forwarder. Such agencies issue a bill of lading to their clients.

Freight brokers mainly offer custom clearance services for shippers. They also assist in processing documents of transport. Certain freight brokers can directly link cargo owners to carriers or secure cargo spaces on behalf of their clients.

Why Do FCL and LCL Have Different Transit Time?

Cargo use choice of full cargo load (FCL) or less than container load (LCL) have processes that apply to them. The full cargo load has only one consignee to its bill of lading. This means that the cargo owner is not sharing a container with other clients. Such a container will be booked on transport from shipping port to destination port. It will not have to stop at other ports for delivery until it gets to your destination port.

Meanwhile, less than container load service involves multiple consignees. This means that more than one client has the right to the same bill of laden. It also means that you are sharing your cargo with other clients. Clients listed as consignees to your bill of lading may require their delivery at other ports. Vessels may need to stop at the other ports to make the delivery before heading to your destination port. Extra time will be spent on making these stops. Time will also be spent on opening, unloading, and reloading cargo. Hereby, extending the delivery period for cargo.

Can I Track My Container While It is in Transit?

Cargo tracking can be conducted through the container tracking system. Details of container number, booking number, and name of shipping line may be requested. So, you can monitor cargo till it arrives at the destination port.
