FCL (Full Container Load) - is available
in 20ft (30 cbm), 40ft (60 cbm) and 40ft high cube (64 cbm)
containers. Shipments sent FCL are loaded in Bali and unloaded
at the destination, hence there is considerably less handling
and moving of the goods.
For all FCL shipments, we take delivery of the container and
personally supervise the packing, allowing us to have full control
of how the goods are placed in the container, thus maximizing
the available space and ensuring that everything is packed tightly
FCL shipments are more cost effective than
sending anything more than 13 cubic meters as LCL. Local
clearance charges are charged per container or per cubic
meter. More than 13 cbm and it is often more economical
to send FCL.
Rates for 20ft, 40ft and 40ft high cube containers vary
according to the shipping line, the destination and the
time of year. Accurate estimates of shipping costs to the
destination designated by you are available upon request.
Shipping cost estimates include all fees incurred during
the shipping process - packing, handling, documents, fumigation,
license fees, etc.
We can provide quotes from a number of shipping
companies and forwarders to suit your budget, however when
we use our integrated cargo company we can guarantee delivery
schedules and ensure a trouble free journey for your consignment.

furniture, stoneware, handicrafts etc. - is generally between

and $25,000 for a 40' container.
For bulk shipments the price, of course, is considerably less.
For example a 20ft container of landscaping rocks will contain
approximately 1500 bags and will cost about US $4,000 to fill.
A 40' container is useful for large shipments
that will otherwise exceed the volume of a 20' container where
gross tonnage and maximum space is required. For example it
is more cost effective to ship bulky bamboo furniture in a
