Shared container shipping – a way to increase your profit!

Shared container shipping, also known as Less-than-Container Load (LCL) shipping, is an affordable option for transporting cargo where you only pay for the volume required for your shipment rather than the whole container. This makes it more cost-effective compared to other types of shipping available.

In order to make maximum profit while selling goods, it is important to find ways to reduce costs. One great way to minimize transportation fees is through shared container shipping. By ordering small and medium shipments from China and sharing a container with other customers, you will save significantly on shipping costs. Each customer will save money! You can save up to 40% of the typical shipping cost. This is an excellent opportunity to increase your profits while keeping costs low.

Furthermore, shared container shipping removes the customer's responsibility for cargo integrity. Our employees are in charge of the reliable cargo fixation in the container, ensuring the appropriate temperature regime and providing forwarding.

Shared container shipping may have longer delivery times compared to traditional sea transportation due to waiting times at consolidation warehouse and customs clearance. However, there's no need to worry. Your cargo is entirely safe from getting stuck at the port. The difference in delivery time between shared container and traditional shipping is only a few days. Opting for shared container shipping can save you much money as the cost is several times cheaper than renting the entire container. This option is especially beneficial for those who need to ship a small batch of products to avoid excess products or those who don't order large batches.

Are you about to start your business based on shipping goods from China?

We are here to support you! It is crucial to establish efficient logistics and minimize transportation expenses. Starting with small batches and shipping them through shared container shipping is a safe option. This method reduces the risks, especially during business difficulties. Shipping small quantities is a great way to start. There is always an option to switch to full containers. DiFright wishes you good luck!
