An international Freight Forwarder (FF) is an agent for the exporter and can move cargo from “dock-to-door,” providing several significant services such as: 1.) Advising on exporting costs including freight costs, port charges, consular fees, costs of special documentation, insurance costs and freight handling fees; 2.) Preparing and filing required export documentation such as the bill of lading and routing appropriate documents to the seller, the buyer or a paying bank; 3.) Advising on the most appropriate mode of cargo transport and making arrangements to pack and load the cargo; 4.) Reserving the necessary cargo space on a vessel, aircraft, train, or truck; and 5.) Making arrangements with overseas customs brokers to ensure that the goods and documents comply with customs regulations.
