Container Types


Full Container Load (FCL) containers are containers that are packed by a loader and unpacked directly to the recipient. The entire container load is to be assigned to a consignor, so that the delivery can not be put together and thus carried out in one go. This increases the economic productivity and the turnover times are reduced.


LCL container (Less than Container Load) is the name given to goods containers that transport several goods from different senders. For this, the container must be packed or unpacked directly at the port. Benefit from our know-how and our commitment and leave the packaging as well as the delivery of your goods to our capable hands.
