A freight forwarder can manage various processes related to origin or destination services that could prevent additional charges & detentions. The overall objective remains the same: to ensure efficient and reliable shipments on behalf of their customers.


Here are the most common responsibilities:


Handling: Coordinate the movement of goods from the point of origin to the final destination. This involves arranging pickup, transportation, and delivery of goods, as well as overseeing the loading and unloading processes at various points along the supply chain.


Transportation and Carrier Selection: Negotiate freight rates and work closely with various carriers, including shipping lines, airlines, and trucking companies, to secure the best routing and optimize the supply chain.


Track and Trace: Provide visibility and tracking services to their customers through various systems and technologies to monitor the movement of shipments throughout the transportation process. Also keep customers informed about the status of their cargo, including estimated arrival times, potential delays, and any other relevant updates.


Hope you find this information helpful to understand the value of a freight forwarder in the logistics industry.
