In shipping, FCL refers to Full Container Load. Unlike LCL shipping, FCL means that you have the entire container’s space and won’t be sharing container with other shippers. It does not mean you need to fill an entire container, you may ship a partially filled container as FCL.
Most FCL shipments are door-to-port, but it is possible to ship FCL port-to-port, port-to-door, or door-to-door. This depends on Incoterms agreed between buyer and seller.
