Full Container Load (FCL)
FCL is an ideal choice when you have a substantial quantity of goods to transport. With FCL, your goods occupy an entire container, providing exclusive use of the container for your shipment. This option is particularly beneficial when you need to transport a large number of items or when the goods require dedicated space and security.
By opting for FCL, you have full control over the container and can optimise the loading and unloading processes to suit your specific requirements.
LESS THAN CONTAINER LOAD (LCL)
With LCL, your goods will be consolidated with shipments from other clients sharing the same container space. This option offers flexibility and cost-effectiveness as you only pay for the space your goods occupy.
Our expert team ensures proper handling and efficient consolidation, making LCL an ideal choice for shipments that do not require a full container.

Factors That Affect Sea Freight Shipping Rates
Sea Freight vs Air Freight
Sea freight is a great choice for budget-conscious shipping of large volumes or bulky items. However, if time is a critical factor, air freight may be more suitable.
At Haulx, we offer comprehensive solutions for both sea and air freight, ensuring your shipments are handled with care and delivered efficiently.
|Speed||Sea freight is a slower mode of transportation – the shipment of goods can take several weeks or months.||Air freight is one of the quickest modes of transportation around.
The shipping duration may only require a few days.
|Cost||The rate of sea freight shipping is relatively cheaper as opposed to air freight.||The cost of air freight is considerably more expensive as compared to sea freight.|
|Type of cargo||Sea freight is typically used to ship bulky items and cargo in large volumes.||Air freight is the preferred method when shipping items in small quantities or goods with a short shelf life.|
|Reliability||Sea freight is sometimes regarded as a less reliable shipping alternative as issues such as delays do not get resolved as quickly as air freight.||Air freight can be more reliable as airlines usually react quickly to problems such as flight delays.|
|Sustainability||Sea freight is one of the most carbon efficient ways to ship your goods.|
It leaves a smaller carbon footprint as compared to air freight.
|Shipping via air freight leaves a much bigger impact on the environment.|
