A freight forwarder is a company that helps to organise the transport of goods for its clients. This includes tracking and tracing shipments, booking cargo space, and giving advice on customs rules and regulations. Insurance and warehousing can be provided by the freight forwarder as well.
This step involves taking the products from the forwarder’s warehouse.
The forwarder will check whether the products and paperwork match.
The items arrive at the warehouse and are unloaded. The team does a quality control check and matches the documentation.
After customs clearance, the products are prepared for transport to their final destination.
The last step of the process is import haulage - the transport of the goods from the warehouse to their final destination.
