The full form of FCL is ‘Full Container Load’, it is a container that is for the use of a single consignee. In international shipping, an FCL means a single container that is booked by the shipper exclusively for the transportation of their cargo only. The shipper doesn’t have to share the container with cargo booked by other shippers. This enhances security and simplifies ocean freight logistics management.
Whereas, LCL which is Less than Container Load is handy when the exporter doesn’t have to book an entire container because the size of the cargo doesn’t demand that much space. Smaller shipments that need to be sent economically and are less time-sensitive are sent on an LCL container.

Third Country Shipping
The general understanding of exports is that goods and services are produced in one country and sold to buyers in another. However, with the exploration of trade, different types of transactions have become possible. One such international transaction is “Third Country Exports”, which means exports made by an exporter in one country and arranging supply from a third country to the importer (Buyer) in some other country.
For example, an Indian business entity, after getting an export order from the USA, sources the goods from China and asks a Chinese supplier to make shipment directly to the USA. In this case, the goods are not entering India but directly transported to USA.
Break Bulk Cargo
Breakbulk ocean shipping is a common method used to successfully transport cargo or goods that cannot fit in standard-size shipping containers or cargo bins. Instead, cargo is transported in bags, boxes, crates, drums, barrels, other handling equipment, or is simply rolled, lifted, or pushed onto a ship or barge.
Examples of common breakbulk goods include reels and rolls, steel girders, structural steel, heavy or oversized goods, manufacturing equipment, construction equipment and vehicles. Though the containerization method is one of the more popular shipping methods, breakbulk is noticing an influx of interested shippers with oversized items
Typically, a breakbulk ship is equipped with high-capacity deck cranes and additional equipment necessary to load and unload these oversized or heavy goods. Additionally, high deck strength barges are sometimes used to facilitate loading this cargo by rolling it on and off the vessel.
