Full Container Load (FCL), is the standard form of shipping freight for those who have a large amount of goods to send. The FCL definition seems to imply that you have to fill the container totally, but in fact, this is not the case – you are renting its exclusive use but if you cannot use every square metre it may still be the cheapest method.  You have to calculate, versus the option of LCL Shipping (Less than Container Load), whether FCL transport is the more cost-efficient. As a rough rule of thumb, if you have 12 pallets or more, FCL freight is likely to be the better solution.
 
Other advantages are that you have less risk from other peoples’ cargo, and there is no bumping from the LCL consolidation/deconsolidation process. If you have fragile goods this can be a deciding factor in favour of FCL Shipping.
 
Ocean Freight Container Shipping Service

Containerization is a system of intermodal freight / cargo transport using standard ISO containers (known as shipping containers), ITUs (Intermodal Transport Units or isotainers) that can be loaded and sealed intact onto container ships, railroad cars, planes, and trucks.

FCL (Full Container Load) - We provide frequent departures at competitive rates for full container load (FCL) shipments from major US ports.

LCL (Less-Than-Container Load) - When you don't have enough cargo for a full container, we offer less-than-container load (LCL) service worldwide.

RO-RO (Roll-On Roll-Off) - if you have rolling stock that's fully operational, non-damaged and too large or heavy for container loading, RO-RO service can provide the more economical and faster shipping options.
