What do Sea Freight Forwarders do?
Sea freight forwarders are actually a subsidiary mode of transportation under the umbrella term known as Freight Forwarding. Freight forwarders have traditionally been employed to help producers export their goods beyond one’s immediate geographical reach. Freight forwarders should not be confused with the actual deliverer of the goods, but rather are involved in liaising with shipping companies in order to deliver the goods.
In the case of sea freight forwarders, the delivery method of choice is through international waters via vessel/cargo ships. Sea freight forwarders and freight forwarder agency alike are commonly known as non-vessel operating common carriers (NVOCC). As part of the comprehensive shipping service that these NVOCC freight forwarders provide, all back-end matters – logistical considerations, legalities, paperwork and even tracking – are dutifully taken care of by the service provider.
