Freight Forwarding Frequently Asked Questions

Should I use a freight forwarder if I know very little about logistics?

When people are not comfortable about shipping logistics, it is sometimes easier to use a freight forwarder. Their services vary and they can assist in improving efficiency both in relation to cost and time, as they are able to consolidate smaller shipments. They can also assist in your navigation around the rules when considering a voyage that you are not familiar with.

How do I choose a freight forwarder?

It might be important to ask the following questions in this scenario:

Are they a member of the British International Freight Association (BIFA) and so covered by freight liability insurance?
Have they worked with clients similar to you and do they have experience with similar products?
Do they work in the same countries you are shipping in?
Are their expertise restricted to a number of countries?
Can they handle multiple transport methods?
