A freight forwarder acts as an intermediary between the shipping company and the final destination of the goods. Although they do not transport themselves, they offer different modes of transport such as ocean/sea, rail freight, road transport and air freight.
Freight forwarders use their trusted connections with carriers and partners, from air transport specialists and freight forwarders to transoceanic routes, to negotiate the best prices. This could be using an established commercial route with regular frequent departures, or through charter flights, evaluating different offers and choosing a better route that optimizes speed, cost and reliability, taking into account all the variables needed to analyze each situation.
Often, freight forwarders handle large volumes of cargo, even from one international destination to another, so they are a key part of triangular operations. At least 3 companies are involved in the triangular business (manufacturer, intermediary and end customer), each company is located in a different country, although there is only one delivery and one shipment. From a documentation point of view, this operation is complicated, especially the subsidiary of VAT settlement.
Most freight forwarders are Authorized Economic Operators, which enables them to take advantage of simplified customs clearance, especially the delayed payment of import duties and charges that may otherwise be required to be paid prior to the release of goods. What is AEO?
