How does the LCL freight work ?

What is the LCL process to send?

In seafood there are two bulk containers: Low container loading (LCL) and full container loading (FCL). As the name suggests, LCL contains a product that takes less space than a full container, meaning you need to share containers and FCL simply means you have all the containers for you.

LCL Expedition: How It Works

Also known as “Groupage”, LCL sent together in a container. Because it’s a part of a container, it’s a bit more complicated and requires better coordination and more efficient operations to keep things running smoothly.

Book LCL

If you choose to ship LCL, you must share the size and weight of the cargo with your carrier. The plan, the current account and the package list must also be completed. Depending on the type of shipping and destination, additional options may be required.

Prepare your products

LCL shipments are usually sent on a fixed schedule, or a weekly schedule is key. The assembly of the LCL product takes place in a warehouse, the so-called group storehouse.

Your freight carrier can organize your freight, which is the most common exercise. You can also provide your own freight in the warehouse of the group.

Whichever option you choose, remember that your load must arrive at the warehouse on time. If the deposit is in / at the port of departure, the conditions for your collective storage rate will generally be seven days before the departure date. This depends on the location. In the homes, given the time required to take the container to the port, the deadline is earlier.

Once the LCL container is packed and prepared, it will be transported to the port of departure as specified in the contract / reservation. Container periods are usually approximately three days before the departure date. Once the consolidated shipment arrives at the port, it is delivered to the shipping company and then delivered to the port of destination.

LCL Shipping


If you make a shipment on a secondary port, your LCL cargo can be delivered to a transfer point where it is transported to another container, or expect additional products to fill the container before they reach their final destination.

  • Arrival to the destination

Once the LCL container arrives at the destination port, the destination means transit. Lift the container and transport it to a warehouse called the deconsolidation warehouse. There, the cargo in the container is deconsolidated in individual shipments of LCL.

  • Receipt of your goods

At this point, the recipient can go to the warehouse to pick up the products. You can also ask the agents to manage the delivery to the recipient. In this case, your products are transferred to the destination deconsolidation store in the destination store from where they are delivered.

  • Delays in the delivery of LCL

In general, sending LCL will not take more time than sending FCL in terms of execution time if all goes well. It can be even faster if you have the opportunity to get a last-minute space for your load.

  • Shared containers, joint responsibility

You may have to wait for other shippers to strengthen their cargo and be ready. In addition, if paper misalignments occur, delays are very likely because customs can contain the entire container. As much as you hate someone else’s mistake, you need to make sure that you are preparing your delivery in a timely manner and that the documents have been completed correctly and correctly.

  • Secondary ports

Another delay problem may occur if you send to lesser known ports. Most international companies provide regular and fixed transport days. But by sending your product to secondary ports, you have to wait a few weeks before your next departure date, and then you will have to wait longer for local cargo handling equipment to transport cargo from the main ports.

  • Transmission and intermodal

If freight is transhipped and / or intermodal, the delays are not uncommon. As mentioned above when transferring, your car may need to be unloaded and transferred to another container or waiting for other cargoes to be loaded into the container. In the case of intermodal transport, further logistics is needed as its cargo must be transferred from the deconsolidation port to the internal terminal and beyond.

Cross border services in Thailand

Cross border transportation for CLMV region.

The Asian economic community expects to strengthen Thailand’s positioning as the key transportation hub for the Greater Mekong subregion (GMS), according to a study by Solidiance.

Growth of the GMS trade

Indeed, Mickaël Feige, responsible for the country of Solidiance, believes that the AEC would increase the trade of the Kingdom with the surrounding countries: Myanmar, Malaysia, Laos and Cambodia but also countries like China and Vietnam.

Thailand has gradually benefited from reducing import duties on products shipped to LTVC countries in comparison to non-alcoholic beverages, motorcycles, tires, soap and cleaning products. Thailand’s cross-border trade with Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia, which represents 20, 14 and 9% of the total in 2012, is expected to grow tremendously in the coming years with a growth rate of about 30%.

This liberalization of the AEC logistics sector will benefit both Thai investors and several other Asian countries. To survive this competition for the ACS, small logistics companies with fewer than 50 trucks in circulation should either become outsourced business units of global enterprises or strengthen to form a wider network.

Ranking of the most used roads for Import/Export:

According to the study, R9 is the axes most used by logistics companies among the 4 major routes connecting Thailand and other GMS countries, as shown by these percentages:

  • R9: 41.18% (GMS)
  • R3A: 21.57% (Chiang Rai-Laos-Kunming)
  • R1: 15.69% (Sa Kaew-Cambodia-Vuong Tao, Vietnam)
  • R3B: 7.84% ((Chiang Rai-Myanmar-Jinghong, China)

The main products that Thailand exported to its neighboring countries via cross-border trade in 2012, a quarter represented natural rubber, computers and parts accounted for 5%, diesel 4% and automobiles and parts 4% as well.

Natural gas was ranked first among Thailand’s cross-border imports with almost one third of the total:
– Natural gas: 30%
– Electrical machinery and parts: 9%
– Computers and parts: 9%
– Copper products: 5%
– Data, audio and video recorders: 4%

Thailand is one of the major logistic player in ASEAN

  • The North Gate, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and southern China
  • The northeast footbridge, connecting Thailand to Laos, Vietnam, southern China and East Asia
