What is freight forwarding?
Freight forwarding companies strategize, organize, schedule, and oversee the shipment, transportation, storage and delivery of goods and merchandise on behalf of shippers and clients. Freight forwarding is the process and logistics of moving those materials from one place to another, usually over long distances and frequently internationally. From booking cargo to completing customs paperwork and insurance claims, freight forwarding services cover all the steps required to get from point A to B.
How do I choose a freight forwarder?
Choosing the right freight forwarder is an important decision as you are essentially choosing a business partner, shipper and logistics manager all in one. When deciding on the right freight forwarding partner, it’s important to compare expertise, all available services and past customer service experiences to make sure you’re selecting the right partner for your company.
What is last-mile logistics?
Last-mile logistics refers to the final step of the delivery process from a distribution center/facility to the end-user. Typically, the last-mile delivery can range from a few blocks to 50 or 100 miles. More often than not, last-mile logistics involves the use of parcel or small package carriers to deliver products to consumers, though in supply chain management, larger shippers like Interstate are more typically used.
