Working with a freight forwarder company like us makes things easier for the importer or buyer since we take care being the main point of contact throughout the process. Following is the step by step process we follow in order to ensure safe and reliable global shipping for our customers.
1. Establishment of credits
Our international forwarder will first check and establish a customer’s credit.
2. Decide on a mode of transportation
Our forwarder will then question the preferred mode of conveyance, such as an ocean, air, road, or rail.
3. Determining the weight and size of the containers
We will then identify the cargo, including its weight and dimensions if it’s a less-than-container-load (LCL) shipment or the size and kind of container in which full container loads will be transported (FCL).
4. Review of documentation
The forwarder will next calculate rates and examine the necessary paperwork. If any information is incorrect or missing, the forwarder should evaluate all relevant documents received from suppliers or sellers and troubleshoot.
5. Transportation schedule
The freight forwarder will draft a transportation schedule that will include the pickup and delivery time
6. Cutting the bills of lading
The forwarder will generate or “cut” the House Bill of Lading and Master Bill of Lading and arrange the carriage of goods after everything is in order.
7. Tracking the cargo
From the moment of pickup and onward, the forwarders will keep an eye on the movements of the cargo.
8. Notification to cargo party on cargo arrival
The forwarding partner will call the Notify Party once the cargo reaches Customs. The Customs broker, Importer of Record, consignee, or importer may be this party.
9. Arrangement for delivery to the desired location
The freight forwarder will organize the final leg of shipping.
10. Invoice the customers
Once the cargo has cleared customs, invoice upon delivery if other payment arrangements have not been made.
What is an international freight forwarder?
Simply said, an international freight forwarder is a cargo travel agent. They are the experts in facilitating international trade so that items get to where they need to go. Forwarders manage transportation details between overseas vendors and buyers.
International Freight Forwarders can manage many organizations’ multimodal transportation needs at once, and their experience and understanding can make them valuable assets for your company. Different international forwarders having different experiences provide additional services, and some may be stronger or more skilled in specific locations than others.
What does an international freight forwarder do?
The freight forwarder serves as a link between the shipper and the various modes of transportation needed to carry the cargo. They establish solid working relationships with multiple carriers, including air, trucking, rail, and ocean shipping. Forwarders also aid in the effective movement of freight while expediting the bidding process and balancing the shipment’s speed and reliability.
The freight forwarder takes on the significant tasks of shipping goods from the shipper and does so effectively. They also transport goods, processing paperwork, warehousing, and customs clearance.
Difference between freight and logistics
The term “freight” serves as a means through which things are transported. It covers a wide range of transport modes, including air and ocean, ground, and rail. However, logistics is moving stuff from one point to another point. It includes transportation to warehousing and planning to value-added services.
Why do you need a global freight forwarder?
Without the help of a freight forwarder, the shipper can export and import products, but they have to face the complexities of regulations, documentation, and other fees. Using the services of a global forwarder can save time and money while also relieving the stress of worrying about the logistics of getting your goods to market.
A forwarder can assist with a variety of international shipping processes. Your forwarding partner can help you draft, assemble, and verify the necessary export documentation and your commercial invoice. They can also manage cargo insurance, documentation, customs clearance, and other tasks associated with international freight.

Frequently Asked Questions
What international freight documentation do I need?
When exporting overseas, you’ll need more paperwork to make sure your shipment gets through the export and import processes without a hitch. The following documents are required:
- Commercial Invoice
- Certificate of Origin
- Packing List
- Hazardous Goods Form
Can I transport personal items in my vehicle?
Automobile carriers are not permitted to transport household or personal objects. As a result, the insurance would not cover loss or damage to household goods or other personal stuff.
Should I invest in insurance?
Many air and ocean freight carriers provide a basic level of coverage known as “carrier liability.” This coverage is usually offered per pound or per item. However, you should be aware that it is frequently insufficient to cover the cost of replacing your equipment.
Is there a specific packing need for international freight?
Because international freight travels further than domestic cargo, it will experience more handling. Ensure you’re following best packaging practices to ensure your shipment arrives undamaged.
What happens if I require my shipment sooner?
All Modes Transport offers a variety of options to fit your schedule and budget. Air shipments usually reach their destination one week after being picked up or delivered.
