CONTAINERISED CARGO FCL / LCL
In the 1950s , an American entrepreneur named Malcom P. McLean bought a shipping company. He had an idea to transport entire truck trailers with their cargo still inside. He realized it would be much simpler and quicker to have one container that could be lifted from a vehicle directly on to a ship without first having to unload its contents.
This idea was further improved through a system of “ intermodalism” – in which the same container carrying cargo can be transported as seamlessly as possible with minimum interruption from via different forms of transport.
This lead to a revolution in the cargo and shipping industry that now accounts for around 60% of all cargo shipped across the globe.
We handle almost all types of containerized goods such as Packaged Foods , Construction Material, Household Items and even the occasional Sports Car to name a few.
And if you don’t have enough cargo for a Full Container Load (FCL), we can offer you our Less than a Container Load (LCL) service.
This significantly reduces the cost of moving smaller volumes of goods by moving various goods together, combining small cargo lots of different consignees into one lot and preparing them for ‘consolidated shipping’.
