PLIPDECO's LCL Export Initiative
On the 14 October 2013 PLIPDECO will commence operations of its Less Than Container Load (LCL) Export Initiative. The Initiative will be offered specifically for cargo of CARICOM origin being shipped to other CARlCOM territories and will provide exporters with the ability to ship cargo in volumes that are too small to fill an entire container. The main driving force behind this initiative is to allow for increased intra-regional trade between T&T and Caribbean countries. The service will be facilitated for shipping lines that presently call at the Port of Point Lisas. PLlPDECO will provide the LCL Warehouse facility to receive, store and stuff cargo into containers.
