Freight Forwarding

Freight Forwarding

A freight forwarder (or a ‘forwarder’, or ‘forwarding agent’) is a person or company that organises transport for individuals or corporations. A freight forwarder will not own or run vehicles but will find the best sub-contractor for the job, or may combine jobs to create a full load to a destination or area. Generally, freight forwarders are used when distribution requirements are complex or irregular, such as exporting to or importing from the continent (freight forwarders also take responsibility for paperwork and satisfying regulations) and multimodal journeys.
