Plain sailing:  

Succeeding in the current market requires you to use cost-effective services and navigate a wealth of logistical pitfalls, while keeping a close eye on your shipments. We understand that a delay, no matter how minor, has the ability to disrupt your plans and hamper your reputation.

This is where Green Leaves Logistics comes in.

You can depend on our flexible and reliable seafreight export, seafreight import and seafreight cross-trade shipping services. Using our vast network of carriers and partners, we can find the most efficient solution for you, making your ocean freight requirements cost-effective.

To help ensure your cargo arrives on time, we use only the most reliable carriers, apply our knowledge and expertise to planning out optimal routes and transport solutions, and anticipating and mitigating risks to your required delivery schedule.

From door to door, door to port, port to door, and port to port, our seafreight shipping services are perfectly equipped to handle any of your FCL (full container load) and LCL (less than container load) requirements.


Full Container Load (FCL)

FCL, an acronym for Full Container Load, is a container ocean shipping option that is cost-effective and for exporters or importers that have enough cargo to fill an entire container.

With FCL/Full Container Load, you have control over how to load and pack your container or you can instruct us to manage this for you.

FCL/Full Container Load reduces the risk of your goods being lost or damaged and offers quicker transit times because, unlike with LCL (Less than Container Load) oceanfreight services, the container is dedicated to you and not shared with the shipments of other exporters/importers.

With a range of container types and functions covered, we are able to handle a wide assortment of goods and shipment types. Whether you have a single container or multiple containers to move, we are ready to tailor our shipping services to you.

The most common container type is General Purpose (GP), also known as Dry Van (DV) or Standard Containers (SC) and they come readily available in the following sizes:

  • 20ft GP container
  • 40ft GP container
  • 40ft GP High Cube container

Less than Container Load (LCL)

LCL, an acronym for Less than Container Load, is a great option for those that need to complete relatively small oceanfreight shipments.

Unlike FCL (Full Container Load) oceanfreight shipments, the LCL alternative doesn’t require the container’s full capacity to be used. Instead, multiple parties make use of the container and share the space between them.

Also known as Consolidated or Groupage oceanfreight services, our LCL shipment services are particularly beneficial due to their flexible nature.

You can use LCL for everything from a large quantity of goods that fill up three-quarters of a container to a single carton. Instead of waiting around until you have enough goods ready to fill an entire container, you can get them on their way straight away.

As the container is split between shippers, another advantage is its cost-effectiveness. You’re not paying for an entire container, just the space necessary for your cargo.

If you don’t have enough cargo to fill a container you don’t need to worry. Our extensive consolidation services have you covered and will help you unlock the benefits of sharing container space.

  • Door to Door 

  • Door to CFS

  • CFS to Door

  • CFS to CFS

  • Customs clearance

  • Marine cargo insurance

  • Export packing

  • Secured digital Bills of lading (eFBL) 

  • Documentation

  • Supply Chain Management
