Optimize International Cargo Shipping with Meest: FCL or LCL



Every single day, tons of stuff moves between the USA and countries all over the globe. At Meest Logistics Group, we ship oil products, grain, gas, animals, equipment, construction materials, vehicles, and other business and personal goods overseas. We offer budget-friendly international cargo shipping by either ocean or air transport. The only thing you get to pick between FCL and LCL. Let’s dive into what sets them apart.

Why Choose LCL?

Less-than-Container Load (LCL) is spot-on when you don’t need a whole container for yourself. Instead of shelling out for the entire thing, you split the space with someone else, which saves you a bundle. For example, a standard 20′ container holds about 28 cubic meters. If your cargo only takes 10 cubic meters, you won’t have to pay for the empty 18 — someone else’s cargo will fill that space.

Small and medium business owners love LCL international container shipping for a few reasons:

  • No Need for Big Storage: You don’t need to store many goods in a warehouse.
  • Save Money on Shipping: Cut shipping costs and only bring in what you need.

Why Choose FCL?

Full Container Load is the way to go when you have a lot of stuff to ship. You rent the whole container, which is great for big batches of goods and saves you money in the long run.

  • Quick Unloading: Since the container only has your stuff, unloading is faster.
  • Faster Customs Clearance: Once your cargo arrives at the port, it gets through customs and to your warehouse quicker than LCL.

Pick the option that fits your needs and make your international cargo shipping with Meest a breeze.

Let’s Sum It Up

Before you pick an international freight service, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Plan Ahead: If you’re shipping combined cargo, plan everything. This gives you enough time to organize the delivery and meet all the requirements.
  • Check Cargo Size: Remember, the size of your packaging affects the transportation cost.
  • Go with a Reliable Service: Meest Logistics Group has been your trusted partner in logistics for over 35 years. From handling business and personal transportation needs to shipping all sorts of cargo internationally, whether LCL or FCL, we’ve got you covered.

Shipping overseas should help your business grow or make moving more accessible, not stress you out. At Meest, we aim to take international transportation to the next level with door-to-door and port-to-port options, reliable shipping methods, and modern tracking tools.
