LCL - - Less than container shipping cost
For one set of cargo less than 15 cubic meters usually needs to be transported by LCL from China's ports and inland cities to the United States.
The local international LCL company in China is responsible for loading each small set of goods into a container, and the local international unpacking company in the United States is responsible for distributing the goods to the corresponding consignees.
LCL companies are usually international logistics companies or international freight forwarding companies.
Due to the huge volume of LCL cargo between China and the United States, it is not enough for one or two LCL companies to provide services. There are more than ten international LCL companies in the market all over China's major ports to provide LCL transportation services to local export enterprises and individuals to various cities in the United States.
The import and export procedures of LCL to the United States are the same as that of FCL to the United States, which requires the consignee and consignor to have professional knowledge of international shipping, otherwise, problems and additional costs are likely to occur in the process of transportation.
It should be specially reminded that the declaration of ISF 10 + 2 by US customs should be completed 72 hours in advance, otherwise the consignees may be fined more than USD5000 by US customs.
China's domestic LCL warehouses: Guangzhou Huizhou
Yingkou and Baoding.
The current LCL freight form China to the United States in 2021. Destination cities include all cities in the United States.
Formula for freight calculation: RT refers to the unit of charge. The actual gross weight of goods is divided by the volume. The bigger calculated number will be used to calculate the sea freight.
The basic port in the West and East of the United States: Los Angeles, San Francisco, Auckland, New York and Miami. The proportion of goods is 1cbm=1000.0 kg. That is, the freight for goods less than 1 ton is charged as one ton.
The charging standard for per RT of goods from China to inland cities in the United States is 1cbm =363kg. If there is a cubic meter of cargo shipped to Austin and the weight of the goods is 1500 kg, then the shipping charge RT=1500 ÷ 363 = 4.13RT, not $77 per cubic meter, and the freight for the case will be charged at the cost of $4.13 * 77 = 381.01.
The proportion of inland cities of American international shipping is low, and the freight is mainly charged according to the charging standard of inland truck companies in the United States, rather than the United States LCL or shipping companies.
