Groupage Service

Optimize your costs: Pay only for the amount of space your shipment occupies.

Compact and protect your cargo: Low-volume shipments are safer when shipped together in an LCL container.

Minimize surprises from costs: With door-to-door LCL shipments, destination charges are made known in advance.

Ship with stable rates: LCL rates are less volatile than FCL rates.

LCL shipments, also known as groupage, refer to ocean freight shipments that are transported in a shipping container alongside cargo from other shippers by sharing the space within the container.
