 FCL sea transportation (Full Container Load refers) to the direct shipping of the full container by international freight forwarding to the port designated by the consignee in Thailand,

FCL sea transportation includes two situations:

One is the traditional FCL sea transportation. At this time, all the goods in the entire container belong to the same buyer and come from the same supplier. They are transported in standard 20ft containers or 40ft containers. Customer can transport the goods to our warehouse by themselves, or contact us to arrange trailer transport services to pick up the container from the supplier loading address;

The second is the new type of container FCL sea transportation. At this time, the goods in the container belong to the same buyer, but the suppliers from different regions. The seller will deliver the goods to the warehouse designated by the freight forwarding agent, then the freight forwarding agent checks the information of the goods with the buyer, then start integrated loading, and arrange customs declaration and delivery.

2) Thailand bulk cargo LCL sea transportation
