Less-than-Container Load (LCL) Shipping
Ship small boxes and pallets as per your need.
Simplify your LCL shipping
We understand that even the smallest cargo can have the biggest impact on your business, so we keep it moving. LCL is ideal for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) who may not have sufficient volume to fill a full container or large and medium enterprises (LMEs) who have varying demands or want to test out new markets.
When you choose LCL, we coordinate, consolidate, and transport your smaller quantities of cargo with other LCL shipments and ensure that you pay as per your utilisation. Maersk LCL reduces complexities, delivers visibility, and provides the advantage of asset ownership to ensure that you always get a reliable solution tailored to your needs. This enables you to make and fulfil a delivery promise. By using our digital tools, you also get full transparency all the way till your customers’ doorsteps.
Here's why LCL is the right choice for your business
