LCL Consignments

If you don't have enough cargo to fill an ocean freight container, Chaucer Logistics offers LCL services between major ports and cities worldwide. We have an extensive network of Container Freight Stations (CFS) which means we can offer you space within a container that is shared with other customers' goods to deliver economical usage-based costing, while providing Full-Container-Load (FCL) frequency, routing and visibility.

We can provide LCL services that feature:

  • * Global network coverage in over 180 countries
  • * Frequent sailings
  • * Reliability and adherence to scheduled sailings
  • * Competitive usage-based pricing
  • * Shipment visibility throughout its journey
  • * Trusted door to door solutions
  • * Complete neutrality for shippers and forwarders alike.

LCL keeps your goods moving because you can send or request them as soon as they are ready rather than waiting to fill a container allowing smaller orders and more sales. The following services are included:

  •  Receipt of cargo at the origin CFS
  •  Consolidation of cargo with similar cargo from other shippers
  •  Issuance of house Bill of Lading
  •  Ocean shipment
  •  Deconsolidation at destination CFS

Our LCL services can be effectively combined with our service offerings to provide end-to-end solutions:

  •  Order Management and Quality Control for effective management of suppliers and goods prior to shipment
  •  Collection from factory or origin of goods to CFS for consolidation
  •  Customs Brokerage services for export and import entry and clearance
  •  Delivery to consignee following deconsolidation at destination CFS
