Specializing in LCL and FCL Container Loads
TradeTrans can help you determine which container type is the best solution for your supply chain. LCL (less than container load) means that your cargo is consolidated into a container along with other shippers’ freight. Some shippers might prefer more frequent LCL shipments to assist with just-in-time inventory practices to meet immediate fulfillment needs.
All pallets are weighed, measured and identified to ensure proper load balance is achieved when container loading takes place. Empty containers are checked to verify they are in good condition prior to loading. Containers that are leaking, damaged or have strong odors are rejected as is any non-working reefer equipment. All cargo, whether palletized or floor-loaded, is securely blocked and braced to ensure integrity during transit. The cargo loading process is documented with photographs which are taken throughout the process. Appropriate dunnage materials (air bags, pallets, brackets) are used to secure each load.
