Freight forwarders maintain solid relationships with global agents and pass the benefits on to you. Things such as efficiency, speed, and service are top priorities for all parties involved.
Cost savingsFreight forwarders are able to negotiate better terms due to the high volume of containers and freight they move.
Freedom from multiple contractsIn today’s market, contracts are necessary for reliability and to limit liability. When moving your cargo across the country or the globe, you could possibly need to work with an air freight company, a sea freight company, and a road freight company. Instead of signing three different contracts with three different companies, a freight forwarder will handle dealing with the individual companies and you only have one contract with the forwarder.
Peace of mind
Freight forwarders offer peace of mind in the transport process. Rather than deal with several moving parts yourself, hiring an experienced forwarder removes many of the tedious administrative tasks and decisions from your plate. While you still have complete control over your shipments, you will not have to bother with vetting carriers, comparing prices, and negotiating services. You instead have one vendor, one point of contact, and the knowledge that your cargo transport is being handled by an expert.
