Freight Forwarding: A Comprehensive Guide, Updated For 2022

The import and export of goods is a key part of many businesses, large and small. While international shipping offers powerful business opportunities, it can be very daunting. If you don't know the term 'freight forwarder', it can seem confusing. Is it a distribution manager? Could it be another term for a freight forwarder? Is it a partner in import/export services?

Directly speaking, freight forwarders are none of these. However, they do take on these and many more responsibilities. Read on for a comprehensive look at freight forwarders. In this guide, we will unravel the complexities of logistics.

What is a Freight Forwarder?

A freight forwarder is a company that specialises in arranging shipments on behalf of shippers. In most cases, freight forwarders offer a variety of supply chain services, including.

﹒ Sea frieght or air freight transportation
﹒ Inland transportation from origin and/or to destination
﹒ Preparation of documents
﹒ Warehousing and storage services
﹒ Full Container Load
﹒ Consolidation
﹒ Cargo insurance
﹒ Custom clearance
﹒ Delivery

Most freight forwarders will ship via their own bill of lading or waybill. The destination agent (overseas freight forwarder) then steps in. These agents provide the delivery of documents, unconsolidation, and collection or delivery of goods. In layman's terms, a freight forwarder is an entity that arranges the import and export of goods.

Freight forwarder find the best shipping solution for their customers. A typical solution implies to assemble a set of logistic services: pickup, road line-haul, consolidation, warehousing, sea line or airline, custom clearance and delivery.

What Does a Freight Forwarder do?

There is a lot to do with the logistics of international cargo transportation. Freight forwarders have to understand what they do not do while handling the transportation of goods. In turn, this can be traced back to what they do for shippers and clients.

When it comes to freight forwarding, there is a golden rule to consider. In most cases, freight forwarders are not the ones who are actually transporting the goods.

Instead, freight forwarders represent the middleman. They are the step between the shipping customer and the transport service that is transporting the goods. This applies to sea freight, road freight, air freight, rail services, and much more.

Freight forwarders use existing relationships to negotiate the lowest possible price for the transport of goods. These transports are carried out along the most efficient route through a tendering/contracting process. Ultimately, the goal is to find a carrier that offers the best balance of cost, speed and reliability.

They also deal with the logistics required for the international transport of goods. This is a complex burden of tasks for most clients.

Advantages of Freight Forwarders
Freight forwarders services offer competitive prices depending on the services required by the client. They can also reduce prices by consolidating other customers' cargoes. This allows for the loading of multiple customers' cargoes in one complete container. It also serves to reduce the final freight costs of shipping below the container.

Freight forwarders usually specialise in a specific service, mode of transport or market. This allows companies to choose the services that the freight forwarder should handle.

Knowledge and expertise are essential when importing or exporting products. This work is carried out through the customs clearance process. Freight forwarders have up-to-date information on customs regulations. In addition, they can handle the documentation, pay customs duties and process taxes.

One of the main advantages of freight forwarders is their ability to provide services related to trade. Some of the services include documentation, bank documents, cargo insurance and inventory management.
