Understanding Freight Forwarding

by Michael Kotendzhi | Trucking, Logistics

Since Canada has signed dozens of free trade agreement with countries in Asia and Europe, shipment of goods have been coordinated like the world is … flat !

No barrier or no government are between trades, so the countries are transporting like with the stores next door ostensibly. Freight forwarding practices more with the sense of globalization in general.

Without exception, Vancouver, British Columbia has one of the biggest freights forwarding operation in the West Coast. A freight forwarder is essential in this part of logistics. The freight forward service establishes the leverages between carriers in different countries. The intermodal carriers often involve oceanic, air, rail, and road shipping. A freight forwarder is skilled to cross the freights internationally and handled them with proficiency and negotiation.

The internationally trade can be intricated even though the countries have established free trade including free tariffs. A freight forwarder certainly can save the customers the complicity of regulations, requirements and most importantly the language barriers. Aside from the risk management and conflict consult, it carries great benefit to seek the service of a freight forwarder.

With the uprising demand in global trading, the service is good to keep in mind for all the B2B trades. 18 Wheels Logistics welcomes all freight forwarders to reach out to our talented team members when the freights are landed. We also offer extended services such as warehousingcontainer transportation, copacking and trucking
