Regulations concerning Full Container Load (FCL) shipments

The term “FCL” stands for “Full Container Load” in the context of international shipping, and it is one of the options under the Incoterms (International Commercial Terms) published by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). However, it’s important to clarify that FCL itself is not an Incoterm but rather a type of shipping mode. Incoterms are predefined international commercial terms used in international trade contracts to communicate the tasks, costs, and risks associated with transporting and delivering goods.
