International Freight Forwarding

International Freight Forwarders play an important role in delivering a shipment to overseas destinations. This involves ensuring that goods are delivered to their destination on time and in pristine condition. They also take care of the complex documentation required to import and export goods without delay. This documentation includes:
  • Commercial Invoices
  • Export Declarations
  • Bills of Lading
Delivery or shipping dates are included in the shipping contract. 

International Courier and Freight Forwarding companies are fully licensed and accredited. Customs are advised to check the accreditation of a freight service before signing any agreement. 

Some Freight Forwarding services will also get involved in the packaging of goods ready for transportation. This ensures that they reach their destination undamaged. They also work with customs officials to ensure the safe transportation of goods.
