Sea freight - Full Container Load (FCL)

Effective 28 February 2012

Answer Help:

A Full Container Load (FCL) is a standard (20 or 40 foot length) shipping container that is loaded with cargo by one shipper for only one consignee. For the purposes of Australian biosecurity import requirements, FCX shipments (one importer - multiple suppliers) are treated as FCL containers.
