Freight forwarders are transportation and logistics companies or entities that arrange the forwarding of goods of whatever size, weight or volume from one place to another.

They are responsible for the safe and timely passage of your cargo and will include all the necessary documentation to endure a smooth and trouble free transport from start to finish. They also carry insurance, which is a specialized form of transportation insurance which insures not just the goods for loss or damage, but also the vehicles used to undergo the transportation, all personnel from loaders and unloaders, to packers, carriers and drivers. Goods may be transported by road, rail, canal barge, ocean or air and costs, load volumes and delivery times vary according to the method used.
