What Is FCL?
FCL is the short form of the term Full Container-Load which means freight, commodity, or goods from an entire container taken by a lone shipper for its exclusive use.
The acronym FCL is used in the logistics or freight-forwarding industry or global ocean shipping industry. Under this system, the shipper or person sending the freight owns the container which does not allow any third party to use it partially.

This is one of the most used terms in the export and import business. This freight arrangement means the concerned container booked has to be received right at the destination or port mentioned in the freight booking document.
It is usually sent from one port to another sea port directly. Such containers are not allowed to be sent or shipped in part: from one port to another and then transported to the destination by another ship.
