What does a freight forwarder do?

The freight forwarder organizes shipments for individuals or businesses to get goods from the manufacturer or producer to a market, customer, or final point of distribution or destination. This process may consist of several stages:

Export Haulage: Transporting from the origin location to a designated warehouse, sometimes owned or leased by the freight forwarding company.

Inspection: Checking the shipment and the freight forwarder taking inspection notes.

Customs Clearances: Submitting documents as per customs requirements and getting the shipment cleared by customs agents to be shipped overseas.

Receiving the Shipment: The freight forwarding company may be responsible for completing the formalities for receiving the shipment depending on the customs regulations of the destination country (your country).

Import Haulage: Finally, the actual transportation takes place. The freight forwarding company may receive the shipment when it arrives at the destination country port, or they might appoint a third party to act on their behalf of them.

Any freight forwarding service requires meticulous documentation and logistics planning. US Auto Export provides freight forwarding services for your international auto transportation needs.
