Importing and exporting are key components of any business’ supply chain. International business could present great opportunities for you and your company, but may also be disconcerting.  


If you have not heard of the phrase ‘freight forwarder’ before, you may be confused. Is it a logistics manager? A shipping firm? An import and export coordinator? A freight forwarder is none of these things but adopts the responsibility of all of them. 


Relying on an individual to uphold the paperwork, process and directive of international trade could result in an inefficient shipping system. However, working with a freight forwarding service that act as an intermediary between shippers and transportation services, can be the key to a successful international business. 


It is essential that you choose a freight forwarding company who can manage your domestic and international requirements efficiently in order to keep your supply chain needs met. A reputable freight forwarder will have characteristics such as large-scale coverage to an extensive number of destinations, relationships with a diverse number of carriers and international networks as well as the experience and knowledge to back this all up. 

It is important and beneficial to have someone familiar with such processes handling your shipping logistics for you. This can help to prevent delays, unnecessary fees and greatly streamline your supply chain process, helping to save your company time and money.
