Full Container Load (FCL)
A container is a steel/aluminum box. It’s being hugely beneficial in shipping owes to that after the merchant has stowed his goods in the container and the doors are closed, the container can be loaded onto vessels, freight trains, trucks and other means of transport without anybody touching the actual cargo. This is cost-efficient and safe as well.
The advantages of container shipping include that it is easy to transfer cargo between different transport modes (vessel, road, rail); risks of damage, loss and pilferage are reduced; load/unload operations in port are efficient and therefore vessels spend shorter time in port (= less cost, faster transit).. Also called full trailer load (FTL).
