What is a freight forwarder?

A freight forwarder is an organization that specializes in shipping logistics, importing and exporting. A freight forwarder acts as an agent or representative for other businesses that need to get their products or shipments out. The freight forwarder uses their network and knowledge to plan out the freight shipment, how it will be shipped (equipment) and the paperwork required.

Why is freight forwarding important?

Freight forwarding is important because the world of shipping can be complex and confusing. For business owners to understand all the laws and regulations can be time consuming, and if not followed properly it can lead to hefty fines. By relying on a freight forwarder, headaches can be avoided by providing the details required to the forwarder and letting them sort of the logistics. This leads to having shipments arrive at their destinations because it is planned more efficiently and paperwork is prepared beforehand.
