  • We offer both Full Container Loads (FCL) and Less than Container Loads (LCL)
  • You do not have to fill an Ocean Container (FCL) in order to ship your personal effects or goods to Africa
  • Less than Container Load (LCL) service may meet your needs. With  LCL service,  you can ship 1 cubic meter or more at a low rate
  • LCL is the least expensive method of transporting cargo to most African countries and other parts of the world primarily because weight does not matter.
