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 the most important stages in the course of national and global trade.
Freight forwarders are the ones that make this happen. They arrange transportation and storage for freight and are physically in charge of the process of freight forwarding.
Does Freightcenter Handle Freight Forwarding?
No, FreightCenter is not involved in freight forwarding. FreightCenter is a freight broker, and provides shipping, trucking, and freight forwarding services for all national or international shipments. We act on behalf of the shipper, but we do not physically handle your freight.
