Definition of Freight Forwarder
A freight forwarder or forwarding agent, is a company that organizes shipments for individuals or corporations to get goods from origin to the final point of distribution. Forwarders contract with a carrier to move the goods. A forwarder contracts with carriers to move cargo ranging from raw agricultural products to manufactured goods.
Freight can be booked on a variety of shipping providers, including ships, airplanes, trucks, and railroads. It is not unusual for a single shipment to move on multiple carrier types. ‘International freight forwarders” typically handle international shipments. International freight forwarders have additional expertise in processing customs documentation and activities pertaining to international shipments.
Information typically reviewed by a freight forwarder includes the commercial invoice, shipper’s export declaration, bill of lading and other documents required by the carrier or country of export, import, and/or transshipment. Much of this information is now processed in a paperless environment.
The FIATA shorthand description of the freight forwarder as the ‘Architect of Transport’ illustrates the commercial position of the forwarder relative to his client.
