One of the major ways of international shipping is Maritime
Transport. For centuries, people use this kind of transportation to travel and trade. Although new types of shipping have been developed, maritime transport is still regarded as the dominant choice. Approximately, about 90% of international shipping is carried by the sea.
PCP shipping lines, is ready to provide NVOCC,FCL, LCL, and Bulk transport services for its customers
One of the international maritime shipping methods is the NVOCC (Non Vessel Operating Common Carrier) method
In this way, large freight companies move freight with their own containers. But for this to happen, they need to rent the same ships and move containers through them
NVOCC shipping has advantages over other modes of transportation. For example, in this way the containers are less likely to be damaged because under the contract with the company that owns the ship it will be the healthy responsibility of all the products and containers to come with it, so it is certainly the highest precision and security in handling and shipping by It is considered a shipping company and the company that owns Containerahara will ship a fully secure ship with all facilities and services at PCP.
In less- than- container- load or LCL, your cargo will be combined with other shippers’ cargos in one container. LCL is suitable solution for small cargo which due to its small number or size and low weight, does not need the full space of a container. Thus, the shipper only has to pay for the space or capacity (in cubic meter) of the full container that is given to their cargo . The payment formula will not change even if the given space is less than the container capacity or equal to its capacity. Moreover, if the container capacity is shared with others, the paying formula will not become different. And that makes LCL a very affordable shipping method for small cargos in ocean freight. Finally , in this method, the carrier has the duty of loading the container. LCL is considered to be the opposite of the next shipping method, which is called FCL or full- container- load
Normally, full-container-load shipment happens when a shipper cargo equals a container capacity, the shipper acquires the container from the shipping line and loads it . Then, the shipper sends back the loaded container to the shipping line to freight it.
But, full-container-load is a tricky term. Actually, 3 other shipments are called FCL, too. First, Whenever the container contains the cargo of one shipper exclusively is considered FCL. Second, whenever a container is loaded with several shippers cargos by those shippers rather than a carrier, for the carrier and even the port officials the shipment that comes in the port, fully and loaded, is FCL.
Third, whenever a container is stowed and loaded by the shipper instead of a carrier or their contractors, for the carrier, the shipment is FCL again and it does not important if the half, quarter or even all of the container capacity is taken up or not .That is why a very important sentence is included in ocean freight bill of lading saying: shipper’s load, stowage and count
Air transportation has been one of the safest and fastest way of transporting, especially transporting valuable, dangerous or sensitive items. Using cargo planes and cargo airlines, you can freight your goods worldwide.
International land transportation is one of the affordable ways of transporting goods and is used for large loads that are not time sensitive. Land transport takes 3 to 10 days in average. The delivery time depends exclusively on the distance between origin and destination. If you need a fast solution or an international delivery, you may pick rail or ocean or air freight.
Each truck used in land transportation is formed to carry different types of goods. In accordance with the size, volume and kind of your commodities, we recommend you different ways and suitable trucks.
When small cargos that do not fill up a whole container need to be transported, several small cargos will be combined in one container and transported by one truck.
Each consignors is charged for the space used by their cargos.
Groupage transport is a term in freight forwarding and it denotes a transportation using a shared container among several consignors. When the quantity or size of a cargo is less than a container capacity, it is better that the cargo is sent with the others collectively. As a result, the transportation cost will be reduced and divided among the consignors.
LTL is an ideal solutions for transporting a wide range of items, for example:
• When several packages should be delivered to same destination;
• When items such as heavy package, furniture and camping equipment should be delivered;
• When moving to a new place, LTL may be a good choice based on the number of packages
In the shipping container business, people mainly focus on the type of merchandise which can be boxed and sorted on pallets. In fact, this is only a portion of what can be shipped in those magical boxes. Handling different type of products is an important segment of logistics, and we utilize different type of containers to achieve that.
Moreover, a container itself is not the only thing that we can utilize to handle our unordinary cargoes. We can use various types of packaging techniques to turn a dry van container into a liquid tank, too.
