What is Freight Forwarding?

Why Should My Business Use Freight Forwarding?
Freight forwarders provide a wide array of logistical services that make handling international freight much easier on you and your business.
Forwarders are deeply familiar with all supply chain solutions. This includes storing and packing your cargo, inventory management, and import/export documentation. Freight Italia can also set you up with a Customs Surety Bond and Marine Insurance so that your cargo and shipments are covered for international transportation.
It’s extremely time-consuming and demanding for you to learn these processes and enact them on your own. Doing so is also likely to result in mistakes, leading to costly delays and decreased customer satisfaction. By trusting the freight forwarding process in the hands of a skilled and knowledgeable carrier, you’ll save money while being assured that your goods are in safe hands.
What Are the Steps in Freight Forwarding?
There are six key steps in successful freight forwarding. It begins with hauling your goods bound for exporting to our warehouse. From there, we’ll work to ensure your cargo receives the proper clearance to leave the country. We’ll ensure that your documentation and paperwork is up to date, and that your shipments fall within Customs laws to pass inspection
From there, the proper authorities clear the paperwork we’ve prepared on your behalf. This allows your shipments to enter the country and head to our import warehouse within the country of destination. Finally, we carry your cargo from our warehouse to your final destination.
