Frequently asked questions

Freight forwarding services are logistics services that involve transporting goods from one place to another. A freight forwarder can arrange for the collection, storage and delivery of goods on behalf of customers.

Freight forwarding plays a vital role in coordinating the worldwide transportation of goods, with freight forwarders effectively managing the complex logistics for both importers and exporters. Serving as intermediaries, forwarders organise the transportation of goods—often across international borders—by whatever means is most effective, whether that be land, air, sea, or rail. Forwarders manage documentation, carrier selection, consolidation and customs clearance as part of this.
