There is almost always a solution to ship any and all cargoes, but restrictions apply to certain classifications of goods known as dangerous goods.
FCL sea freight is charged by the container size. Generally, a 40’ will be 2 x the cost of a 20’. Rates are market-driven and are usually only valid for a month.
LCL sea freight is charged by cubic metre. Forwarders will consolidate freight from various shippers into an FCL or all one shipper’s freight from multiple suppliers into a Buyer’s Consolidation and ship to the destination. Port charges are higher for LCL.
