About This ReportRelated ReportsTable of Contents

This report is intended to assist buyers of freight forwarding services. Freight forwarders handle the logistics of cargo movements and ensure that products are picked up and dropped off at the specified locations and times. Freight forwarders arrange transportation and tracking, negotiate freight charges, prepare documents, arrange customs clearance, insure goods, arrange warehousing and consolidate freight services on behalf of their customers. Freight forwarders generally do not provide transportation services themselves. Instead, they subcontract freight carriers, such as trucking companies, rail carriers, cargo airlines and waterborne carriers, to transport buyers’ goods.
