More about Freight Forwarding

A forwarder is a master logistician who uses a variety of shipping methods including ships, airplanes, trucks, and rail to ensure that delivery is made in the quickest and cheapest way possible.

Freight forwarders often work internationally organizing the movement of goods between countries. They need to know each country’s export and import regulations as well as the details of waybills, licences, insurance, and other essential documents.
