Less than Container (LCL).

Less-than-Container-Load ( LCL ) shipping is used for smaller freight parcels.  For example, pallets, crates, and skids are LCL. These smaller loads are not big enough to fill out an entire container by themselves so, numerous smaller shipments from various shippers are consolidated into full containers with other pallets and crates. Then the entire container is transported to the end destination port. After lading overseas, the container is devanned and de-consolidated. With the aid of our agents, we ship the crate, pallet, etc to your buyer’s door.
Shipping smaller dimensional cargo via LCL offers significant savings over shipping the same smaller load in its own container or sending it on a plane. Texas International Freight offers LCL shipping to most major ports and destinations throughout the world. We also are able to bring LCL shipments for American buyers into the US. Of course, Texas International Freight offers palletization, skidding, and export crating to help facilitate this. Please contact us and we will shepherd your cargo to its destination.
