What is LCL shipping?
LCL means ‘Less that a Container load’ and is a term used by Freight Forwarders and the forwarding community, to describe parcels of freight from different customers that are consolidated together into a full container load – FCL.
LCL shipments can be economically alternative to airfreight for larger and heavier items, that are less time sensitive. This is because some of the fixed container costs are divided up amongst others like you, that are sharing space in the container, which means cost savings for you!
How does LCL shipping work?
Extreme Global ‘consolidates’ a number of LCL parcels at our Los Angeles facility into a 40ft container.
What is an LCL Consolidation service?
This is our weekly service shipping service from our depot in Long Beach to our depot in Auckland.
If you need any costs associated with transport to our Long Beach depot or delivery to you, from our Auckland depot, let us know and we can advise on pricing associated with this.
What is a CBM in shipping?
This is one of the terms Freight Forwarders use to classify a parcels size. This information can then be used for packing the container and charging purposes.
The dimensions in metres – I.e. the length x the width x the height dictates its volume or what we call CBM (cubic metre).
So a crate 1.0m long x 1.0m wide x 1.0m high is 1cbm.
However a crate 1.5m long x 0.75m wide x 0.89m high is also – 1cbm
Remember to measure the external dimensions, so include the crate or pallet when measuring the goods.
What is a Revenue Tonne (R/T)
A revenue tonne is a term in shipping to describe a quantity of freight and used for charging purposes. Whereby whichever is the greater of the weight or measure (cbm) is charged.
In the sea shipping, trucking and air freight industries this measurement is then treated differently due to the industries general attitude carrying weight.
I.e. Sea freight 1 Tonne = 1 R/T. Trucking 333kgs = 1 R/Tonne. Air 167kgs = 1 R/T
One cubic metre (cbm) 1mx1mx1m of shoes may weight 100 kgs where as one cbm of steel rod may way 1500 kgs. In each industry then calculates its R/T based of the greater metric x its R/T ratio.
For example in sea freight shipping 1 cbm/ 100kgs of shoes = 1 revenue tonne
While 1 cbm / 1500kgs of steel = 1.5 revenue tonnes
What is FCL?
A full container loaded with just one customers cargo.

E.g. Many chemicals, lithium batteries, fuels, poisons, etc.
