Freight Forwarding
Services We Offer

    1. Ocean Freight Services: This service involves the transportation of goods by sea, utilizing container ships. Ocean freight is one of the most cost-effective methods for shipping large volumes of goods internationally. It offers options for full container load (FCL) and less than container load (LCL), making it versatile for different shipment sizes.

    2. Air Freight Services: Air freight is the fastest way to transport goods internationally. It is ideal for time-sensitive shipments, high-value items, or cargo that needs to be delivered quickly over long distances. Although more expensive than ocean freight, it provides rapid transit times and high security for the cargo.

    3. Land Freight Services: This includes road and rail freight options. Land freight is crucial for intra-continental shipping, offering flexibility and direct access to remote areas. Road freight is versatile and quick for shorter distances, while rail freight is cost-effective for heavier, bulk shipments over longer distances within the same continent.

    4. Multimodal Transport Services: Multimodal transport involves combining two or more modes of transport, optimizing the benefits of each mode to increase efficiency and potentially reduce costs. This service is tailored to meet specific logistical requirements and can include any combination of air, sea, and land transport.

    5. Customs Brokerage: Freight forwarders often provide customs brokerage services, handling all the necessary documentation and procedures for clearing goods through customs barriers. This service ensures compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, reducing the risk of delays or penalties at international borders.

    6. Warehousing and Distribution: This service includes storage, management, and distribution of goods as part of the supply chain. Freight forwarders offer warehousing solutions that help businesses manage inventory efficiently, with services including order fulfillment, packaging, and even last-mile delivery.

What is freight forwarding?

Freight forwarding is a service used by companies that deal in international or multi-national import and export. A freight forwarder acts as an intermediary between the client and various transportation services to facilitate the movement of goods. They negotiate the best prices and routes, handle customs clearance, and manage all the logistics necessary to deliver goods from the origin to the destination.

How does a freight forwarder differ from a shipping company?

A freight forwarder organizes shipments using various carriers across different modes of transport, but they do not move the freight themselves. Instead, they arrange multiple shipping services and manage the logistics and legal aspects. A shipping company, on the other hand, is the actual carrier that transports the goods.

Can freight forwarders help with packaging and storage?

Yes, most freight forwarders provide a comprehensive range of services including packaging, warehousing, and storage. They ensure that goods are properly packaged for international transport and provide options for both short-term and long-term storage to accommodate the timing of shipping and delivery schedules.

What should I consider when choosing a freight forwarder?

When choosing a freight forwarder, consider their experience, network, range of services, and their compliance with international shipping laws and regulations. Also, evaluate their customer service, the transparency of their tracking systems, and their ability to handle the specific types of goods you need to ship.

Are there specific types of goods that require special attention from freight forwarders?

Yes, certain goods such as perishable items, hazardous materials, oversized or heavy cargo, and high-value items require special handling and expertise. Freight forwarders that specialize in these types of cargo can provide the necessary equipment, knowledge, and certifications to ensure these items are transported safely and in compliance with international regulations.
