Reliable, flexible and cost-efficientkeep your business moving with our FCL solutions

In ocean freight forwarding, FCL (or Full-Container Load) is a method of shipping goods typically used by customers who wish to move large, bulky goods or have a large volume of goods that can fill an entire container. Because shipping Less-than-Container Load (LCL) is a premium per unit cost, there are benefits in balancing shipping LCL or waiting until there is enough stock for an FCL. To help you simplify your shipping needs, our freight forwarding experts at TVS SCS work with Tier 1 shipping lines on your behalf to leverage better prices and space protection, so that you are shipping with the most cost-effective solution.

Comprehensive ocean solutions

If you have multiple suppliers and manufacturers who together generate enough stock for an FCL, we also offer Buyer’s Consolidation (BCN) services. Through our global network of ocean freight forwarding experts, we provide our consolidation services to help you with cost-effective and efficient cargo movements.

Our other ocean capabilities include Vessel Charter, Breakbulk Solutions and Intermodal and Multimodal Solutions. We offer flexible service for all types of container equipment, including dry-box, open top, flat rack, reefer (refrigerated), Flexitank and Isotank.

    FCL refers to a full-container-load, so the actual size varies depending on the type of container used. The two most common containers are a 20-foot, and a 40-foot container. A 20-foot container measures 20’ L x 8’ W x 8.5’ H, which is roughly 6.1m x 2.4m x 2.6m. A 40-foot container is the same in width and height but measuring 40 feet or 12.3 m in length. There are other types of containers for more specialised uses, such as reefers (refrigerated), open-top, flat bed, and more.

    We offer comprehensive freight forwarding and management services. Not only can we handle your import and export needs, we also provide customs clearance and other freight solutions.
