-FULL CONTAINER LOAD (FCL)
Turkey Cargo Shipping provides weekly shipments to the
main ports around the world. For every single shipment, Turkey Cargo
Shipping offers two types of full containers:
- The 20 feet, with an internal capacity of 33 cubic meters
- 40 feet, able to carry up to 66 cubic meters.
This solution ensures a safe and reliable shipping process, as your container will be sealed from the departure to th final destination address.
LESS THAN A CONTAINER LOAD (LCL)
This option is more cost-effective for lower volumes, as only one part of the container will be used for the transportation of your goods.
This solution allows you to rationalize your shipping costs significantly. Your goods are loaded in the container alongside those of other customers and you will end up paying only for the space you need.
Cargo Tips : LCL is recommended for a volume between 0-15m3. However, it may vary depending on the port of departure. Please contact us for more information.
Turkey Cargo Plus: Turkey Cargo is proud to offer “door-to-door” services also for LCL shipments.
You want to import / export goods to / from Turkey but you do not know which incoterm to opt for? For a reliable and hassle-free shipment, Turkey Cargo Shipping advises you to go for an (almost) full coverage of your shipment.
In other words, it is better for you to choose incoterms such as EXW or FOB, where (almost) all of your shipment will be handled and supervised by a team of dedicated professionals.
These two incoterms come with a pick-up from the factory / warehouse (EXW) or from the port of departure (FOB), which frees you from quite a heavy responsibility during the transportation process.
Turkey Cargo experience in providing logistics services for shipments between Turkey and the entire world now enables our team to ship all kinds of goods between both countries (foodstuffs, chemical or dangerous products, etc.).
During your shipments, no matter what type of goods is shipped, we manage all the necessary steps, including the most complex part of it (customs clearance and other paperwork).

KILOS, LBS, M3, CBM; FEET, YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU THERE IS NO MISUNDERSTANDING ON THE VOLUME AND THE WEIGHT
Your Turkish suppliers and factories can communicate with you using European or US metrics. Be sure to convert properly the volume and weight.
Dimensions & capacity of standard containers
IN BULK, CARTONS, PALLETS, WOODEN CRATES?
Shipping companies enforces maximum weights for containers:
20 feet : 22,1 tons
40 feet : 27,4 tons
40 HC : 29,6 tons
Most of your goods will be packed (usually) in cartons. In this way, you need to know the following information:
Carton dimensions : The dimensions of the pallets on which these boxes will be placed Now, you just have to compare these figures to the volumes of the containers seen before:
20 feet : 33 m3
40 feet : 67,3 m3
40 HC : 76 m3
In this example, let’s take the example of
industrial pallets: 100 x 120 cm
As a reminder, the weight of a pallet is 30 kilograms
the maximum load per pallet is 1.5 tons
You will be able to load:
9 pallets in a 20 feet container
22 pallets in a 40 feet container
Once you know the size of your cartons, pallets, the container (dimensions), as well as the weight, then you are able to decide what is the most suitable option between FCL and LCL.
Cargo Tips : Now that you know the size of your cartons, the height of the container (an industrial pallet is 16cm high), and the weight of your cartons, you can finally calculate the volume and therefore forecast how many containers or CBM you need.
How you calculate Cbm
The CBM formula is a simple calculation -: total box pieces * length * width * height.
your box dimension 60x40x40 and 100 pieces
100(total box pieces) x 0,60 (length) x 0,40 (width) x 0,40 (height) = 9,6 cbm
