Freight Forwarding Service FAQs

What is the role of a freight forwarder?

Freight forwarding companies are international transport companies that handle international shipments. These international carriers deal with transporting goods between destinations, including international cargo inspections and customs clearance. Freight forwarders act as an intermediary between the shipper and transportation services, liaising with various carriers to negotiate on price and decide on the most economical, reliable and fastest route for your shipment.

What is the difference between logistics and freight forwarding?

Freight forwarding and logistics can be two very different things. Freight forwarders partner with several logistics companies, which means they can offer a more comprehensive pricing structure than what you would get if you worked directly with a freight logistics company. Freight forwarders also have more excellent knowledge and experience around speciality freight companies, which often vary significantly regarding types of transport, house moving, fragile goods, and lead times among other factors.

What is the process of freight forwarding?

Freight forwarding is a process that has been around for centuries, and it is still very much in use today. It involves the transportation of goods between one destination and another. The freight forwarder acts as an intermediary between the shipper and the transportation services to negotiate on price, decide on the most economical, reliable, fastest route for delivery.

Is Freight Forwarder a 3PL?

In the logistics world, freight forwarders and 3PLs are two terms that are often used interchangeably. Both groups know about arranging, retrieving and delivering freight from point A to point B. But what sets them apart? A 3PL is a company that offers supply-chain solutions in addition to freight services. Freight forwarders specialise in these services only – for example, they might be experts at shipping live cargo or handling hazardous materials. The difference between a freight forward company and a 3PL provider is mainly dependent on how much expertise you want!
