FCL shipments and what we offer
The abbreviation FCL stands for, Full Container Load. It is used to describe larger cargo that would often be loaded by the manufacturer into either a 20ft (28 cbm) or 40ft (58cbm) container. The doors would be sealed by the shipper upon loading using a bolt seal.
Unsworth has over 40 years experience moving goods, allowing our export team to take care of the entire process from warehouse to destination and provide our customers with a hassle free shipping experience. When shipping a full container load we can offer a choice of multimodal containers: 20ft, 40ft, and 40HC. Extensive FCL container services are also available including Dry, Reefer, Flat rack, Open top etc. There are also a number of warehousing and storage facilities available as well as accurate web-tracking upon request.
FCL rates are filed with Federal Maritime Commission (FMC), which allows Unsworth to issue our own Bill of Lading.
