Several major shipping lines are changing their empty container return policies. Some empty containers are now being returned directly to the shipping terminal instead of an empty container depot.

Outsourcing your warehousing needs to a 3PL company makes a lot of sense, particularly when looking to expand and scale your business. 3PL companies specialise in all the necessary operational tasks that work synergistically to create an efficient supply chain. They are experts in maintaining equipment, hiring staff and tracking inventory. In many cases they do these tasks faster and cheaper and more effectively than a business managing these tasks internally. So, with all the providers out their offering 3PL warehousing, how do you go about selecting the right one?
If your company is shipping goods, but you don’t have the quantity to fill a full ocean container, a Less than Container Load (LCL) service may be the answer. LCL shipments are handled by the shipping line and are more economical for companies than using airfreight, particularly when the shipment is not time-sensitive. The shipping line will gather all shipments marked LCL and combine them into one container.
