The full form of FCL is ‘Full Container Load’, it is a container that is for the use of a single consignee. In international shipping, an FCL means a single container that is booked by the shipper exclusively for the transportation of their cargo only.
The full form of LCL is Less Container Load. It is handy when the exporter doesn’t have to book an entire container because the size of the cargo doesn’t demand that much space. maller shipments that need to be sent economically and are less time-sensitive are sent on an LCL container.
