Here are some basics that will help you make the process of shipping from Indonesia to your destination country by sea easier.
Let’s start by talking about the preparation of your shipment to the port closest to your location. Everything is ready for loading. It will be done by our Cargo company.
Another question that may arise is how many items you can import from Indonesia. The minimum shipment is one to two cubic meters depending on the country of destination.
This will be shared in one container with different consignees. This shipping method is known as LCL “Less than a full container load”. From here you can add as many cubic meters as you need to ship.
Other solutions are FCL “Full Container Load” full containers. Need more information, let’s take a closer look.
Full container load (FCL) is a term also used in the transport of goods by sea.
It refers to a form of shipping in which a sea freight container is completely filled with goods from a single customer and the container documentation is issued in the name of a single receiver.
When a customer needs to ship a significant amount of goods, he may choose to use the FCL service instead of renting a container and sharing it with other customers.
In this case, the customer has the option of using a container of different sizes, from 20 feet, 40 feet and 40HC feet long, depending on their cargo needs.
FCL service is a convenient option for customers who have enough goods to fill a full container and who want to have control over the shipment of their goods from start to finish.
In addition, FCL shipping is usually faster and more efficient than LCL (less than container load) shipping, as there is no need to handle several small loads and combine them into one container.
However, there are some drawbacks to FCL shipping. For one thing, the shipping investment may be higher than that of an LCL shipment due to the rental of the entire container.
And of course, the customer must have the necessary storage space to store a full container of goods upon arrival of the container at destination.
In summary, FCL shipping is a way of shipping goods by sea in which a sea freight container is completely filled with goods from a single customer.
This option is suitable for customers who have enough goods to fill a full container and who want to have control over the shipment of their goods from start to finish, but the investment in shipping costs will be higher than LCL shipping.
There is the possibility to ship by cubic meter in case your purchase does not cover the volume of a container. The first cubic meter will be the minimum capacity.
Less than container load (LCL) is a term used in the transport of goods by sea. It refers to a form of shipping in which a smaller quantity of goods is loaded into a sea freight container, rather than filling the container completely.
When a customer needs to ship a small quantity of goods, he may choose to use the LCL service instead of renting a full container.
In this case, the customer’s goods are combined with those of other customers who are also shipping goods in small quantities. All these goods are placed together in one container and shipped to the final destination.
LCL service is a convenient option for customers who do not have enough goods to fill a full container and do not want to pay for unused cargo space.
It is also a good option for customers who do not have the storage space necessary to store a full container of goods.
However, there are some drawbacks to LCL shipping. For one, the process of loading and unloading goods can be slower and less efficient due to the need to handle several small loads instead of a single large load.
In addition, the cost of LCL shipping is usually higher than FCL (full container load) shipping due to the additional costs associated with combining and handling several small loads.
In summary, LCL shipping is a way of shipping goods by sea in which a smaller quantity of goods is combined with that of other customers and placed in a sea freight container for shipment.
This option is convenient for customers who do not have enough goods to fill a full container and do not want to pay for unused cargo space, but it can be slower and more expensive than FCL shipping.
In case you have a freight forwarder, we can also work with them and will coordinate at all times.
20′ container with load capacity of 33,2 m³ and Max. Load weight 25.000kg.
40′ container with load capacity of 67,4 m³ and Max. Load weight 26.470kg.
40′ High Cube container with load capacity of 76,3 m³ and Max. Load weight 26.470kg.
The estimated time depends on each country. Containers will leave the port of Surabaya – Indonesia, to the port of destination. This transit usually takes between 21 and 35 days from the time the ship leaves the port.
While the cargo is on its way, we keep working to prepare and advise our customers while the container arrives at the port of destination and proceed with all the documentation you will need to clear your container with customs and then receive it at your warehouse.
Your container is already at the port of destination, what should you do now? There are companies that take care of all the management that you will need for the disembarkation of your merchandise “Customs agencies or customs offices”.
These companies will manage the payment of the taxes that correspond to your country. They can also take your products from the port of destination to your warehouse.
In case you do not have your own Customs Brokerage Agency, we will recommend options that you can have and request a quotation before the arrival of the container.
Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have. It will be our pleasure to assist you and explain you how to do business buying in Indonesia.
