Type of carriages by sea

FCL (full container load with goods from one customer).
LCL (partial load with payment only for the actual volume of cargo, and not for the entire container).
Transportation of liquid and bulk cargo or goods in special refrigerated containers.

We will help you to find the best solution for your request.

Container shipping (FCL)

FCL (Full Container Load) is a transportation of cargoes when the entire volume of a container is filled with goods or raw materials from only one customer.

The advantages of this type of transportation:

ability to deliver large consignment of goods;
sealing the container immediately after loading your cargo;
Transit time is much shorter compared to LCL, as there is no need to wait for the consolidation of other customers’ goods for shipment.

Transportation of cargo as part of a groupage container (LCL)

LCL (Less Container Load) – picking up goods from different shippers and arranging it as part of one (groupage) container. In this way, small consignments do not occupy the entire container space. The customer pays not for the rental of the entire container, but only for the space in it. The cost of transportation of groupage cargo is calculated individually for each client, depending on the dimensions and weight of the parcel.

UNI-LAMAN GROUP has its own service for the consolidation of goods in the warehouse. Contact us and our managers will tell you how to deliver your cargo in the most profitable way.

meat and fish;
fresh vegetables and fruits;
plants;
medications;
some types of chemicals.
