TRANSPORT FORWARDING

WHAT IS FREIGHT FORWARDING? Freight forwarding is the coordination and shipment of goods from one place to another via a single or multiple carriers via air, marine, rail or highway.

The importance of freight forwarding for global trade was recognized in Canada in 1948 with the establishment of the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA). CIFFA recognized that forwarding freight, whether by land, marine, rail or air requires coordination, regulation and agreed-upon best practices to ensure that goods flow in a timely and proficient manner across borders, overseas, and throughout the world.


The Principles of Freight Forwarding The principles of freight forwarding are premised on the efficient and cost-effective transfer of goods that are maintained in good condition throughout their travels. To accomplish this, freight forwarders become experts in managing the logistics necessary to ensure that goods arrive on time. Successful trade and shipping in expanding globalised markets means having the right tools at your disposal.


Negotiating rates, customs regulations and being fluent in the requirements of shipping by land, sea, rail, and air, freight forwarders manage the risks and benefits of shipping both nationally and internationally using the latest advances in information technology.
