COMMERCIAL SHIPPING- FCL, LCL & Air.
Goods can be shipped by Air Freight or sea freight: Shared container (LCL) or Full container (FCL).
With Air freight, rates are calculated by volume and weight of the goods and prices start from £2.50 per Kilo. Discounts apply to goods above 100 kilos and minimum accepted weight for commercial air freight is 50 kilos.
The Shared container service (also known as LCL or Groupage service) is suitable for heavier goods that would otherwise not be economical to ship by air but would also be too small for a full container. Fastlane will need the dimensions of the pallets/goods so that we can give you an exact quotation.
If shipping heavy commercial goods and bulky Machinery, we recommend the use of 20 or 40 foot containers. This will ensure the safety of your goods. This is also commercially more viable than any other form of shipping when it comes to such heavy goods.
