What is Freight Forwarding?
A freight forwarder is a company that arranges the import and export of goods internationally. They are intermediaries between shippers and various transportation services (cargo ships, trucking, and air freight).
Freight forwarding companies utilize established relationships with these transportation services to help their clients move cargo in the most economical way possible. By taking bids from various transport services, forwarders can pick the deal that best balances speed, cost, reliability and their clients shipping requirements.
Do I Need a Freight Forwarder?
Unless you are well versed in moving cargo internationally in a cost-effective and efficient manner, hiring a freight forwarding company will likely be in your best interest. They will handle everything involved in the shipping process including logistics, customs, and securing the best rates. This can dramatically reduce your costs, and alleviate the logistical nightmare of having errors occur during the shipping process itself.
