A freight forwarder is a company that arranges your importing and exporting of goods.
Forwarders are intermediaries amongst shippers and various transportation services such as ocean shipping on cargo ships, trucking, or expedited shipping by air freight.
Forwarders utilize established relationships with carriers, from air freighters to ocean liners, to secure the best price to move your freight via the most economical route by working out various bids and choosing the one that best balances speed, cost, and reliability, per your shipping requirements.
Forwarders handle the A-Z cargo logistics of shipping goods from one international destination to another, a task that would otherwise be a daunting and stressful process for a DIY'er, which could end up costing more money if done incorrectly and not according to customs procedures.
To comply with export documentation and shipping requirements, it is very common to hire a qualified cargo forwarder to act as their shipping agent. In such cases, Packair advises and assists customers on their best shipping strategies, and how to move their cargo most efficiently from one destination to another. Packair's extensive knowledge of documentation requirements, regulations, transportation costs and banking practices can ease the exporting process for many companies.
An experienced freight forwarder can save you untold time and potential headaches while providing reliable transportation of products at competitive rates.
Forwarders are key assets to companies dealing in international transportation of goods, and are especially helpful when in-house resources are not experienced in international shipping procedures.
