FCL Containers (FCL = full container load) consist standard of 20ft
containers and 40ft Containers. 1 TEU = 1 twenty feet equivalent unit.
Within the international container shipping there are additional options
available to many destinations such high cube (40ft. extra high)
or 45ft. (extra long). There are also opportunities for reefer / temperature
controlled containers, open top containers and flat rack containers.
The shipping costs for seagoing containers are calculated per unit plus
additional surcharges for currency, bunkers, ISPS, Panama, Suez etc.
as well as for the THC (terminal handling charges).
The advantage of a shipping container is of course the ability to handle
the cargo from place of loading to the place of delivery without
touching the goods.
The Global Shipping Net agency network will be able to arrange inland
transport to the port of loading or from the port of discharge to the
final destination, as well as custom export documentation or custom clearance,
where and whenever required.
