The shipping rate refers to the cost of shipping the goods from a destination from one sea to another. Typically, this cost is affected by the nature, weight or volume, distance of the destination, and all other accumulated costs produced by other services.


In this short article, we will introduce how to calculate the shipping costs of FCL and LCL. First, before the container size affects the final cost, you understand the other two main factors.


Maritime prices

Two main costs caused by shipping costs are:


Expenses set by operators

Treatment and liquidation of goods during unloading

Another factor that causes these costs is the type of container used in most shipments. It is very similar to ground transport and LTL VS FTL, and sea freight can be divided into a full box (FCL) or lower than container load (LCL).



Full container

The shipping company charges a fixed fee for its main container size. This includes 20 'containers, 40' containers, and 40 'high cubic containers. The costs they charge depends on many variables, including their sources, go to, quantity, time in the year, and many other factors.


Typically, if there is no undergoing contract between the company and the shipping company, or if you want to transport very large goods, you should find the freight forwarder. These types of agents can usually get discount prices based on some travel quantities.



Small than container loading

When someone does not have enough items to fill the entire transport container, it is best to choose to be loaded with the container. This is not only a cost-effective choice but if other delivery, the freight merges can make the company ship more frequently.
