Less-Than-Carload (LCL)

LCL is less than carload shipments, which are typically used for shipping smaller quantities of goods that cannot fill an entire rail car. LCL shipments must be consolidated with other LCL shipments before they can be loaded onto a rail car. This type of shipment often requires special handling and may be subject to additional fees.

LCL shipments can be more expensive and time-consuming than shipping larger quantities of goods, but they offer the advantage of being able to ship smaller quantities of goods without having to fill an entire rail car. This type of shipment is often used for high-value or fragile items that require special handling.

If you are considering using LCL shipping for your goods, be sure to contact a logistics provider that specializes in this type of shipping to get the best rates and service.
