What Is Freight Forwarding?
Freight forwarding is the utilization of single or multiple carriers—from truck to rail to plane to sea—in order to move freight from one place to another, making it one of the most important stages in the course of national and global trade.
Freight forwarders are the ones that make this happen. Freight forwarders manage the logistics process, from door-to-door, taking care of all the necessary documents. They streamline the process and handle any potential issues that may arise during transit, including rerouting the shipment, if necessary. They arrange pick-up, transportation, storage for freight and are physically in charge of the process until it’s delivered.
