The Buyers Consolidation Load (BCL) presents an attractive alternative for customers who purchase goods in a country or region from different suppliers. Instead of diverse LCL shipments, the single shipments are consolidated in the port of departure and thus, are shipped to Switzerland as FCL shipments. This concept provides higher efficiency as well as cost savings.
