Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Booking space on a vessel, issuing Bills of Lading and arranging for your freight to get from it’s origin to destination is only a small piece of a Freight Forwarder’s responsibilities. A good Forwarder will file customs on your behalf, keep you up to date on regulations specific to the country or countries you are shipping to, and handle all of your documentation needs, whether it be Certificates of Origins, Bank Drafts, Letters of Credit, etc. provide you with adequate Insurance coverage should this be desired and track your shipment from the time it leaves your door to the time it arrives at it’s destination.

Usually all that is required from the Shipper is a Commercial Invoice and Packing List or Shipping Instructions in another format from which the pertinent information can be extrapolated in order to create the Shipping documents.

Freight Forwarders are reimbursed from the Shipper through a fee which is negotiated between the two parties depending on the services provided. Booking space on the vessel, arranging for any inland haulage, and any specialized documentation needs (e.g.Conular/ Embassy Documents) are all components which need to be taken into account.
