LCL Freight from the UAE

Best LCL Freight Shipping Services from the UAE

Shipping is the foundation of any economy. Taking into account the growing pace of import and export relations between the UAE and Russia, fast and convenient shipping options are vital for the stable economies of both countries. Ocean freight is one of the most frequent go-to options on this route.

When you don’t have enough cargo to utilize a full freight container, LCL (less-than-container load) is the ideal mode of shipping. The service provides both shippers and consignees with the opportunity to move smaller shipments from multiple suppliers as well as to their buyers to reduce the overall transportation costs, whilst maintaining high levels of efficiency.

The digital freight forwarder Agora Freight is a one-stop freight forwarding platform that offers excellent transportation solutions for moving LCL cargo shipping from the UAE to Russia.

Why is LCL a good option for your shipment?

  • There’s flexibility in using LCL shipping when you need it, instead of having to wait and/or adjust your timetable.
  • It is rather cost-saving solution as you only pay for the space you use in the container.
  • The inventory levels can be kept lean. Instead of purchasing large quantities from suppliers, you can use LCL to keep a steady flow of inventory in smaller quantities.

When LCL shipment can be organized?

  • The shipment volume is or under 14 CBM (around six standard pallets)
  • The goods are eligible for shipping in a shared container.
  • Air freight option cannot be considered for some reasons such as the cargo dimensions.

There are some disadvantages of LCL shipping. One of them is that the freight of all shippers needs to be consolidated in a container at the port of origin in the UAE and then deconsolidated in Russia. This may cause longer transport times, be mindful of that when opting for this mode of transportation.

Also, you should find other option than LCL if your cargo is fragile or has a short shelf-life (food or flowers for instance), when you have definite delivery date which can’t be changes, when the goods shouldn’t be moved more than necessary, or the shipment is too heavy or too large.
