Shipping is an important aspect of an export-import business
. As it impacts the final cost, timeline, and relationship between the two parties, it is important to select the right mode of shipping. It helps ensure that goods reach the destination as per expected timelines at reasonable costs. Contrary to common perception, a business does not need to ship huge quantities of a particular product
to start an export business. With Less than Container Load (LCL) shipping, it is possible to consolidate products with goods of other sellers. This ensures that the goods are shipped inexpensively without putting any additional pressure on the shipping company.
