What Does a Freight Forwarder?

The term freight forwarder originates from the Latin «Expedire», and means «the one that deals with types of cargo and freight transportation». In reality the term freight forwarder can mean a company specializing in cargo handling and that transports ocean freight, air freight, railway freight or road freight. A freight forwarding company offers the best transport route, provides freight, cargo insurance, and, if necessary, carries out customs clearance in the countries of departure and destination.
