Freight Forwarding Companies

Supply chain management and freight forwarding companies typically handle a variety of freight and shipping tasks for their customers.

Packaging

Depending on shipping and distribution needs, freight forwarders may help with packaging and preparing goods for transportation. For instance, a company may order a product in bulk, but want it split into smaller packages when distributed. Additionally, shipping forwarders ensure temperature- and weather-sensitive products are stored properly.

Labeling

In order to be compliant, package and container labels are required to contain certain information. That information includes an itemized list of products inside — including any hazardous materials, weight in both pounds and kilograms, country of origin and port of entry.

Documentation

Shipping goods domestically or overseas requires complex documentation, including an export license, shipper’s export declaration (SED), certificate of origin, inspection certificate, and the shipper’s bill of lading (BOL).

Businesses that use freight forwarding services, rather than coordinating the shipping and distribution of goods on their own, benefit for a number of reasons, including:

  • Versatility: Logistics and transportation involve many moving parts. A third-party business knows all available options, and has the resources to handle any unforeseen delays or reroutes.
  • Improved Productivity: By outsourcing freight processes, you have peace of mind knowing that experienced professionals are managing all aspects of evaluating vendors, comparing prices, and negotiations, while still having control over shipment of goods.
  • Cost-Effective Solutions: Freight forwarding companies have the experience and connections necessary to negotiate costs and keep them down.

Freight forwarding from DSI Logistics ensures your goods remain in proper condition throughout transport and eases the time and cost burden. To learn more, contact us today.

Freight Forwarding FAQ

How does freight forwarding work?

Freight forwarders act as the middleman between companies and their carrier partners. These logistics brokers work with various ocean carriers, negotiate the best prices, help discover the fastest routes, and much more.
