LCL Shipping Services

LCL Shipping Services With UDS

LCL or less than container load refers to a term in the shipping industry. It describes the load of the containers that are filled with various products and goods. During shipping, the container load is often in a small volume. During those times, shipping the small volume of stock along with other items together is known as LCL. It is quite beneficial for low shipping volumes of items and is a good choice to begin trading.

LCL refers to sea shipping of cargo load whose volume is not enough to fill 20ft or 40ft containers. The delivery time of this shipping is faster as the requirement to wait until a sufficient volume is attained to fill a container no longer remains. However, during LCL shipping, the risk of contamination and logistical issues is high as freight from different suppliers is combined.

The items may even get damaged or get sent off to the wrong buyer. There are various shipping companies that include the service of LCL. Among them, UDS is one of the best. Their shipping costs are transparent, and their team provides proper guidance and assistance to their customers. This blog will talk about UDS's LCL container shipping services and why one should choose it for their shipping.

At UDS, customer satisfaction is among our top preferences, and hence we offer affordable shipping services. Our company strives to work with integrity and honesty and ensure that your items are shipped properly without any obstacles. Some of the benefits that you might attain by choosing us to include:

Simple documentation and shipping

Our shipping process for LCL containers is extremely easy and convenient. It does not require heavy documentation or any excess freight. You can trust us with your items, and we will ensure that they are delivered safely to the given location. Upon their arrival at the destination port, our team ensures that the items are properly unloaded without any damage. They are segregated according to their delivery to the respected customers. We look after your shipment's customs and other port formalities to avoid delays or problems.

Insurance coverage

While conducting LCL container shipping, there is a high risk of damage to the shipment items. Many people have constant worry regarding the condition of their products upon arrival at the port. Therefore, UDS provides insurance coverage for the items to cover the damage issues or other important issues.

By choosing our service, you can easily ship your items through LCL without worrying about damage since our insurance will cover it. We ensure that the goods are shipped in proper condition, but even if issues occur, then the coverage will be provided. However, apart from the insurance we provide, you should purchase shipping insurance for your items. It is a smart investment and will provide you with peace of mind.

Cheap pricing

At UDS, customers are regarded as the topmost priority. Therefore, for their benefit and financial condition, we have kept our prices extremely affordable and flexible. LCL shipping is a cheaper alternative since you must provide the payment for your required volume and not for the entire container. To top that off, we provide transparent pricing for the satisfaction of our customers.

With us, you will not get the requirement of paying any extra charges for your shipping process. We do not encourage the idea of extra hassle regarding payment, and hence you will need to pay the entire amount at once without any excess freight or unloading charge. So, if you have no urgency regarding your shipment, then choosing the LCL container service offered at UDS is the best option for you.

Time management

Our team comprehends the value of time and hence provides their best to complete the process within the given time. We meet our deadlines and try our best to not delay the arrival of your items at the port. The customs and other important factors are handled by us at a considerable pace so that your deliveries reach you properly within time while also ensuring that the paperwork is proper.

You can even schedule your shipments properly and get the opportunity to ship fewer items frequently. It will help you to save costs as there will be no requirement for warehousing or storage, and the time gap between shipping goods will also lessen.

Packaging and Labelling

LCL container shipping requires proper packaging since they are shipped along with several other shipments. At UDS, we take extra care while packaging and labelling your shipment to avoid any damage. We use bubble wraps and packaging cushions to provide excess durability to the items that will allow minimal to zero damage to the LCL containers.

If required, we even use pallets, i.e., small wooden platforms on which the products are stacked to provide excess strength and durability. Apart from packaging, our team also pays detailed attention to the labelling process. We provide clear instructions regarding the address of the buyer so that the product reaches them properly without any mixup. Instructions regarding the unloading of the products are also stated so that fragile goods are not shaken and are kept on top. With us, you can get the opportunity to relax since your priorities are secured with us.

  • Bill of lading
  • Packing list
  • Commercial invoice
  • Insurance certificate
  • Certificate of origin
  • Dangerous cargo certificate (this is not compulsory, and you need to provide it only if it is required by us)

    We provide our best to conduct the entire shipping process as fast as possible. However, despite that, sea shipping requires more time than air shipping. Therefore, by choosing our service of LCL containers, you need to wait for around six to ten weeks, depending on your destination. The time frame can be quite scary, but the price and convenient process and experience make up for it. We also offer the service of the port to door or door to door for your LCL shipping.

    As a result, you can get your shipment right at your doorstep without having to collect it from somewhere else. Often it happens that companies charge an amount which is unbelievably low for their clients. During those cases, the amount is charged specifically till the unloading of goods at the port, and they will not be delivered to your doorstep. Therefore, to avoid such confusion, we offer door to door service for your shipment and ensure that your priority reaches your destination safely without any obstacles.

    Choosing our service gives you the benefit of selecting a date as per your preference for the shipment. People often want to ship their products at their preferable date so that, as per their calculation, the shipped product reaches the buyer within time. However, due to excess orders and load, shipping companies are unable to abide by your preference and instead ship according to their benefit. But with us, no such problem remains. The LCL shipping at UDS allows you to state your preferable date for the shipment, and we ensure that the shipment process begins on that specific day.
