Freight Forwarding Services Procurement in the US

This report is intended to assist buyers of freight forwarding services. Freight forwarders handle the logistics of cargo movements by arranging transportation and tracking, negotiating freight charges, preparing documents, overseeing customs clearance, insuring goods, arranging warehousing and consolidating freight services. Unlike third-party logistics providers, freight forwarders generally do not provide transportation or warehousing services themselves. Instead, they subcontract freight carriers, such as trucking companies, rail carriers, cargo airlines and waterborne carriers, to transport buyers’ goods. This report excludes vendors that solely offer cargo transportation or customs brokerage services.
