What is a freight forwarder, and what services do they offer?

Freight Forwarding explained

While freight forwarding is part of the world of moving logistics, it goes beyond merely packing up your belongings and moving them to their destination. Freight forwarders act as intermediaries between all the services that take general freight, corporate freight and even international shipments from collection to destination. This includes managing the paperwork, storage and other logistic tasks involved in the freight process.

The logistics involved in international shipments can quickly become overwhelming to individuals who don’t have experience in handling these complex procedures, and freight forwarders can take care of the process from collection to delivery. Freight forwarding agencies make use of their network of carriers to get shipments moved from shipper to receiver in the most cost-effective way while getting it done safely and effectively.
