Freight from Hawaii to Canada: How to choose the fastest and cheapest way to ship

When you’re shipping from Hawaii to Canada, you can choose from one of four modes: FCL sea freight, LCL sea freight, or air freight. Here are key factors for each mode:

FCL Sea Freight from Hawaii to Canada

FCL, or full container load, means your goods fill an entire container, either 20’ or 40’ long. If you are shipping at a high volume, you’ll save time and money by shipping FCL. Pricing for the freight portion of an FCL shipment is done as a flat rate, regardless of whether or not your container is completely full.

LCL Sea Freight from Hawaii to Canada

LCL, or less than a container load, means your goods do not fill an entire container, and will be shipped in wooden crates, along with other crates. Note that when you ship LCL, your goods will need to be consolidated at the origin port and deconsolidated at the destination port. That’s why LCL shipping takes a considerably longer than FCL shipping.
