FCL is the abbreviation for a “Full Container Load” used in the International shipping Industry for Exporting and Importing seafreight cargo. This term is commonly used to describe an international sea freight service that is designed for ocean freight shipments of cargo where an exporter or importer has exclusive use of a dedicated sea freight container (normally a 20ft or 40ft container). Sea freight containers are usually loaded and sealed at origin and then shipped by a combination of sea, rail and/or road to the final destination.

When standard ocean shipping containers were developed in the 1950s, the industry saw a dramatic shift from cargo moving as Break Bulk to cargo in containers. However, there is still a robust market demand for Break Bulk vessels and related services.
Known as “big, wide and heavy,” Break Bulk cargo requires specialized capabilities to handle properly, reducing risk of damage to some of the most expensive cargo in the world. SAR Transport has the expertise, experience and global carrier network necessary to facilitate Break Bulk cargo shipments anywhere in the world.
