Your cost-efficient solution for small-volume shipments

Don’t have enough freight to load an FCL? Think LCL.

DSV Less-Than-Container Load (LCL) services takes the hassle out of shipping small volume cargoes across the world. Our direct weekly departures access hundreds of destinations, global consolidation hubs guarantee capacity, and our cost-efficient solutions ensure you only pay for your allocated space.

With our LCL services, small volume shipments get consolidated and containerized at our Container Freight Station (CFS) before shipping from the origin port. Moving your cargo in shared container space means better rates since the cost is shared with others. Not only do you maximize savings, but you also enjoy time-saving benefits by eliminating the need to consolidate multiple lots yourself.
