Are You In Need of Shipping A Less Than Container Load

We Have an Extensive Network of Container Freight Stations World Wide


    When shipping a less than container load (LCL) customers can deliver goods to our facility by appointment, or pick-up can be arranged

    If delivering by appointment consider renting a van, or truck if your shipment is large. Products are mainly shipped by pallets, or crates depending on the product and packaging required.

    Crated goods qualify for an “all risk” policy but palatalized goods only qualify for a “total loss” policy. Marine Insurance is also available.

    Rates by ocean are given by the cubic meter and weight combined. Please give the total L x W x H plus weight for accurate pricing of a move.

    Less Than Container Load Shipments (LCL) Can Be Arranged
    From Our Facility to Overseas Ports

    Goods to be pre-packed before delivery to our facility:

    All goods should be wrapped and packed into strong cardboard moving boxes. Larger items such as dressers, tables, chairs, should be blanket wrapped and bed mattress’s should be wrapped with thick plastic. We arrange the goods in a uniform manner to ascertain the total L x W x H and weight which depicts the eventual price based on a combination of the total Cubic Meters and the total Weight.

    A Cubic Meter is equivalent to 39″L x 39″W x 39″H inches, Ocean Freight shipments moving LCL are charged on a prorated basis therefore if you have 3.3 Cubic Meters you pay for 3.3CBM not 4CBM.

    Pallets vs. Crates?

    Crates deliver the ultimate protection for your personal belongings when shipping a less than container load (LCL), but at an extra cost. Pallets are cheaper, but boxes simply plastic wrapped on a pallet do not have the same protection as a crate. You have to judge for yourself if you have fragile, breakable items, and also consider the value of your goods.

    Is the cost of using crates worth it?

    A student shipping books and cloths can save money by opting for a “pallet and plastic wrapping” of there goods. If the student has a computer then a crate is the sensible way to go.

    If the “original title” is not available or if you have a lien holder, shipping your auto is still possible. If we can show customs an original company letter headed document from the lien holder, stating that they authorize the automobile shipping with a copy of the title, and contact info with a name and phone number for verification. Please contact our office for more information on this process.

    When shipping an auto, U.S. Customs inspects the original title. With these shipping forms you have a “Power of Attorney”, which is an authorization from the “Shipper” or “Consignee” for the shipping of the auto; therefore, AbleCargo.Com can be your “export agent” with an acknowledgement of our “terms and conditions”.
