Freight Forwarding

Importing and exporting can offer a range of excellent business opportunities but the bureaucracy and complications of the process can seem daunting, particularly if you’re new to the whole process. There are large amounts of paperwork to negotiate, as well as regulatory compliance to consider. All of this can be difficult to make sense of if you’re not familiar with how international trade operates.


As a result of Brexit the whole process has grown even more complicated. Finding your way through what may feel like a potential minefield may seem impossible.


How freight forwarding can help


Freight forwarders act as intermediaries between shippers and carriers. They take on the time-consuming and complex administrative aspects of logistics and supply chain management, freeing up your time to concentrate on your core business. They understand the process, keep abreast of any changes and can be a source of useful advice to shippers. They can also negotiate on your behalf with the international shipping lines, assist with any documentation, organise transport and negotiate customs. They are an integral part of the whole supply chain


A good freight forwarder can save you time, resources and headaches while providing reliable transportation of your products at realistic prices.
