Freight forwarders facilitate the movement of goods in international trade by playing an intermediary role between their clients and the companies who pick up, transport, and deliver goods to their destinations. Freight forwarders negotiate freight rates with transport providers. Considering cost, speed, and reliability, they recommend the best mode of transport to their customers. Once a plan has been approved, they work to make sure the goods are transported and delivered as agreed. In carrying out their work, freight forwarders frequently provide associated services, such as customs services, NVOCC services, warehousing, and advice about risk management, financing, and methods of payment. This category is for sites about the topic of freight forwarding, and for the sites of businesses whose primary business activity is freight forwarding. A subcategory named for a specific country is for sites focused primarily on shipping goods from that country to places elsewhere.
