How Does Freight Forwarding Work?

A freight forwarder is a company that acts as a specialized middleman between the shipper and the carrier. They arrange the entire shipping process (including storing the goods) and choose the transportation method and path that best optimize cost, reliability and speed. Freight forwarders typically transport cargo under their own bills of lading.
