Freight Forwarder and Moving Company Transporting any large shipment overseas, it's essential to hire a thirdparty transportation company that you can trust. There's often a lot of confusion over what kind of company can handle different types of shipping. Today we're going to discuss the 5 differences between a International Freight Forwarders and a moving company. By the end of this article, you should have a good idea of what type of shipping company is best for your particular situation.
1. Movers (generally) handle groundonly shipping Moving companies are great for moving your personal effects, particularly when they don't have to cross any national borders. A moving company can pack, prepare, and load your goods into trucks or shipping containers for international shipping. However, when it comes to actually shipping internationally, most movers will call on the services of a International Freight Forwarder to broker an international freight transporter.
2. Movers usually hand off international shipping to a ThirdParty Logistics Company The mover will attach the freight forwarder's fee to your final bill, often with a markup so they can profit from coordinating the shipment with another vendor. Now, some freight forwarders will offer moving services themselves, but it's important to investigate and make sure they're not just brokering an outside moving company to handle the packing, loading, and inland moving.
3. Freight Forwarders handle international regulations and paperwork The hardest part of international moving, believe it or not, isn't the distance. Your shipment will pass through many regulatory checkpoints, and must comply with the constantlychanging requirements of maritime and customs authorities as it travels from origin to destination. A Transport and Logistics company has the knowledge and experience to navigate those challenges.
