Dealing directly with transport carriers is great for in-city or even in-state deliveries. However, when you’re dealing with state-to-state or international trading and transport, or even in-state transport that requires more than just a single method of transportation, choosing a company that offers freight-forwarding services can be a huge advantage.
Freight forwarders offer advice, paperwork, and all of the guidance necessary to get your goods from one door to the other. Cargo transport rates are always changing, often on a daily basis, and especially when dealing with ocean transport. Using a freight forwarder means that you’re getting real-time rates, rather than carriers who lock you into a set contract.
When your clients want to go with the cheapest route, the freight forwarder can make that happen. If their needs change and they suddenly want the quickest route, a freight forwarding company can make that happen too.
You save time, money, and frustration by using a single vendor. Rather than contacting a trucking company, an air carrier, and an ocean carrier, freight forwarders ensure that your goods will never miss a transfer time and are cared for from pick-up to drop-off. You’re also only dealing with one price, rather than going straight to several sources.
