Ocean Freight from USA to Brazil

One of the biggest benefits of ocean freight is the number of options for handling specific cargo configurations. Among those options, Full-container-load (FCL) and less-than-container-load (LCL) shipping are among the most popular, since many types of goods and materials can be containerized and shipped from door to door with minimal handling (no handling in the case of FCL).

Indeed, FCL shipping is the ideal choice if you need to ensure maximum security for your goods-in-transit, since after loading, your container remains sealed throughout its journey, and its contents will not be exposed to any handling en-route, except in the event of a customs inspection.

On the other hand, while LCL freight does have to be handled during consolidation and deconsolidation, it enjoys the same protection in transit—from the elements and unwanted human attention—as FCL cargo. However, the LCL pricing structure allows small quantities to be shipped at a very reasonable cost, since you won’t have to pay for the exclusive use of a shipping container.
