JNR Global Logistics can service all load types and sizes
FCL (Full Container Load)
FCL is a shipping method where an entire container is rented for transportation. When there is a large amount of cargo, such as in the case of a family moving, FCL is more cost-effective than LCL. Charges apply for 20F containers, 40F containers, or 45F HQ containers.
LCL (Less Than Container Load)
LCL is a method of shipping small quantities of goods that do not fill an entire container. Multiple shippers’ goods are consolidated in a single container. LCL is a cost-effective option for shipping small volumes of goods overseas.
If you choose LCL for shipping, household goods are packed in wooden boxes known as Liftvans or Vanpacks. These items are transported within a shipping container alongside other cargo, ensuring that the customer’s household goods are always kept separate.
When shipping a small amount of cargo, pallet shipping is the most cost-effective method. Additionally, when we need to transport a large number of items at once, we will use pallets (which may also be called skids) to send them. Using pallets makes it easier to move, load, and unload the cargo.
The most common pallet size in the US is 48 inches by 40 inches (width x length), though many different sizes can be shipped.
Shipping Cars with Household Goods
When shipping a car in a container, other items can be left inside the car. If there is enough space, various household items can also be packed into the car. The cost of shipping a car overseas varies greatly depending on the destination, model and year of the car, and the customer’s visa status. We will provide you with a customized estimate based on your specific conditions, so please feel free to contact us for more information.
