Full Container Load (FCL)
This service involves the loading of a full container for your shipment, ideal for businesses that need to ship a large volume of goods.
Less than Container Load (LCL)
This service is used when you do not have enough cargo to fill a container. Your shipment will be consolidated with other small shipments, providing you with a cost-effective solution.
This service is designed for the transportation of oversized or heavy cargo that cannot be shipped in a standard container. Our team of experts will work with you to design a customized shipping solution tailored to your needs.
Unicargo’s Console Boxes
Unicargo’s console box services allow us to use our own containers to consolidate your shipments that are less than container load (LCL), enabling us to offer our clients more competitive rates and greater flexibility in shipping their cargo. By consolidating small shipments into a single container, the number of times the cargo is handled during the shipping process is reduced, minimizing the risk of damage.
