CONTAINER FREIGHT STATION

CFS stands for ‘Container Freight Station’; a station or warehouse where a number goods or products are stored to be shipped together in one or more containers.

At a CFS, the goods normally belong to a number of different customers, and the shipment is often done via LCL shipments.

LCL (Less container load) shipments occur when the exporters don’t have enough cargo to fill one container full (an FCL). We’ve put together a guide on Less Container Load Shipments and Full Container Load Shipments here.
