|Careers in Freight Forwarding|
Freight Forwarding is the organisation of shipments for individuals or corporations to get large orders from the manufacturer or producer to market or final point of distribution. A forwarder is not typically a carrier, but is an expert in supply chain management, in other words, a freight forwarder is a third-party logistics provider. A forwarder will contract with asset-based carriers to move cargo ranging from raw agricultural products to manufactured goods. Freight can be booked on a variety of carrier types, including ships, airplanes, trucks, and railroads. It’s not unusual for a shipment to move along its route on multiple carrier types.
