The Advantages of Hiring a Freight Forwarder

At Speed Global Services, we are happy to provide unparalleled freight forwarding to our valued customers. If you’ve never used freight forwarding services before, you may be wondering exactly what it is and what advantages it offers. For starters, a freight forwarder handles both imports and exports, and essentially takes your goods and ensures they arrive at their final destination. A freight forwarder will advise the overall transportation process, fill out required documents, and make sure all custom rules and regulations are followed.

So, just what exactly are the benefits of using a freight forwarder rather than handling everything yourself? One of the key advantages is that you only have to rely on one vendor when it comes to your shipping needs. Rather than hiring carriers, insurance providers, and other people that need to be involved in order to transport your goods, a freight forwarder can handle everything for you. This can save you both time and money in the long run.

Another advantage is that you will receive door-to-door service. If you use a standard carrier, your goods may arrive in their intended region, but getting the shipment to the purchaser is up to you. Unfortunately, the last mile of delivery is where most of the problems pop up, placing the biggest risk on you instead of the carrier. By hiring a freight forwarder you can avoid this dilemma altogether.

There are almost countless benefits that go along with using a freight forwarder rather than a standard carrier. For more details about freight forwarding contact us today!
