GLOSSARY

RORO

RORO stands for Roll-On / Roll-Off). The cargo to be transported is driven on or off board while driving. Especially for products (such as vehicles) with large or non-standard dimensions and heavy weights. Your cargo can be unloaded or loaded quickly. Naturally, Mundo works closely with renowned RoRo shipping companies.

FCL

FCL stands for Full Container Load, or a full container load. The entire container is available to you at FCL. LCL stands for Less than Container Load. In other words, called a partial load container or groupage. If your goods do not occupy an entire container, it is often cheaper to choose LCL. The container is then shared with and filled with several other carriers.

      BREAKBULK

      When goods are too big for a container or too heavy for an airplane, we use breakbulk. We specialize in shipping large machinery such as rolling stock and other large and oversized goods. A big advantage of breakbulk is that the machines or vehicles to be shipped do not have to be disassembled first. That saves a lot of time and therefore money. Read more about project cargo.
