With LCL shipping, you can move as little as you want

If you need to move small loads often and have some flexibility in your schedule, Less than Container Load (LCL) shipping is the best way for you to go.

With LCL shipping, you only pay for the space you need, so it can bring down your inventory costs. It’s also a more reliable way to move your goods during peak season when capacity is tight.

When you need big and fast, it’s FCL all the way

If, on the other hand, you’ve got large volumes to move and your schedule is giving you no room to maneuver, Full Container Load (FCL) shipping is the right call.

FCL gives you shorter transit times than LCL and a reduced risk of damage or contamination to your cargo, so you can count on your goods arriving on time and in great shape.

Here are a few questions people usually ask us:

Where do you ship to?

Through our global network of shipping partners, we can help you move shipments between China, Thailand, Japan and other locations in Asia, as well as Israel, the USA and Canada. And we intend to keep growing this network too, so as we add new locations we’ll make sure you’re the first to hear about it.

How much does shipping cost and how do I get a quote?

As soon as your Ship4wd account is registered, you gain access to our entire shipping schedule and the freight carriers in our network. Enter the details of your cargo details and where you’re shipping from and to, and we provide an instant range of competitively priced shipping quotes to choose from — and we also offer flexible payment terms.

What types of shipping do you facilitate?

Ship4wd provides digital freight forwarding for air freight and ocean freight, with ’first-and-last-mile’ land transportation to help your goods complete their journey at either end.

What documentation do I need to submit for ocean freight shipping?

The most important document you need is a Bill of Lading (BOL). This legal document provides your freight carrier with all the information they need about your shipment, including quantity, type, and destination.
