(non-vessel operating common carrier)

NVOCCs play a very major role in the global logistics sector. Its role involves contracting ocean freight cargo and shipping lines in order to move shipments from one point to another. NVOCCs form the largest trade maker in the container shipping industry and work independently and under their own responsibility.

Freight Forwarding

Freight forwarders act as an intermediary between the company who makes the shipment and the final destination for the goods. Although they do not carry out the shipments themselves, they offer different transport modes such as ocean freight, rail freight, road transport and air freight shipment.


You may be wondering that Which one is right for you?

When shipping via sea-freight, you can either fill the container with your own goods (FCL) or share a container (LCL). The best method to use only depends on the size and volume of product that you are impoting.

LCL is when goods are in a shared container ( so you can import a small amount ).

Whereas FCL is when your goods are in a container on their own ( so you can import larger volumes)

LCL and FCL Pros and Cons

It’s not as simple as “Pros and Cons” when talking about LCL and FCL as neither method is superior; it just depends on which is more suitable for your needs. Often, depending on the size and volume of your shipment will dictate which one you need to use. However, there are a few advantages and disadvantages to each method depending on your situation that could help you decide which is best for you.
