LCL stands for Less than Container Load. It is a term used in the shipping industry to describe a shipment that does not fill a full container. When a cargo is not large enough to occupy an entire shipping container, it is consolidated with other shipments to maximize container space and reduce costs. LCL shipments are combined with other cargo from different shippers into a single container at a container freight station. This allows multiple shippers to share the transportation costs of the container, making it a cost-effective option for smaller shipments. LCL shipments are commonly used for smaller businesses or individuals who do not require a full container for their goods.

The choice between sea shipment and air shipment depends on factors such as the urgency of delivery, budget constraints, and the nature of the goods being shipped.
