FCL or Full Container Loads

For full container loads, AKV offers premium services at cost-efficient rates. We offer 20ft or 40ft containers as well as special equipment that include flat-racks, open-tops and refrigerated units. The use of an overhead crane for flat-racks and open-tops is included in our services too.

LCL or Less than Container Loads

AKV provides a cost-effective way to group and consolidate your smaller shipments into a full container. We provide LCL services that are based on the same vessels as the FCL containers where the shipment is loaded in a container with other cargo for the same port or area. Our service ensures direct or one stop maximum routing to guarantee fast transit shipments.

Loading containers

If you do not have the facility to load a FCL container, AKV can arrange to have your cargo collected, loaded and secured into a container at the nearest port.
