What is Freight Forwarding?

To go back to basics, freight forwarding refers to the movement of goods on a large or bulk scale. The freight forwarding industry includes couriering, but is not limited to the movement of goods through car, van or lorry: instead, freight forwarding refers to moving goods around the world on behalf of importers and exporters and can include moving goods by ship and plane as well as road vehicles.

The core specialism of freight forwarders is in the movement of cargo. Freight forwarders’ duties involve maintaining all the relevant documentation for the movement of the goods, often ensuring international compliance, goods’ customs clearance, overseeing all cargo packing and can also include the forwarding of dangerous or hazardous goods.
