In today's environment, a growing number of companies have short product life cycles and maintain low stock levels. As such, this has resulted in the need for frequent small sized orders. Our less-than-container-load (LCL) service brings economies of scale, and the cost benefits of full container load (FCL) shipments, to shippers of LCL cargo. LCL keeps goods moving in your supply chain. Shipments can be sent as soon as they are ready rather than waiting until you have a full container.
With our less than container load (LCL) services, JAS provides fixed weekly sailings to over 40,000 CFS pairings around the world, ensuring schedule integrity and some of the fastest transit times in the market. We further consolidate freight at our dedicated gateways on a regular basis.
Our LCL ocean freight solution provides the flexibility needed in today's environment by allowing companies to maintain lower inventory levels and thus keep costs down.
