They assess factors such as cargo volume, destination, transit time requirements, and cost considerations to identify the optimal carrier that meets the client’s needs. Once the carrier is selected, the forwarder handles the booking process, securing space on the vessel for the shipment.

Documentation and Customs Compliance: Ocean freight forwarding involves extensive documentation to comply with international trade regulations. Freight forwarders prepare and manage essential documents, including bills of lading, commercial invoices, packing lists, and certificates of origin.

They provide guidance on efficient packing methods, maximizing cargo utilization, and ensuring proper securing of goods to prevent damage during transit. Forwarders also coordinate container pickup and return, managing the logistics of empty containers at various locations.

They manage the process of consolidating cargo at origin, including arranging pick-up and transportation to the designated loading port. At the destination, they handle the deconsolidation and distribution of goods to respective consignees.
