Ocean Freight

When goods are delivered by sea, international freight is transported with carrier ships safely and effectively. Ocean forwards specialize in moving freight with the aid of cargo ships and have a strong network across countries to help them complete their shipments. They are experienced in ocean freight and know how to get the best delivery rates. The ocean is a difficult terrain to navigate, which is why ocean freight forwarders are necessary. The global economy and its supply chain are highly dependent upon sea freight forwarding because most products are shipped across the ocean. After all, the ocean connects countries around the world. It is considered to be the most environmentally friendly and efficient delivery system. Ocean forwarders perform not only the transportation of cargo but also the management of all the required paperwork, compliance regulations, and safety measures that go into supply chain logistics. This helps them create a cohesive supply chain that gets cargo across the ocean despite unruly weather and unprecedented events.

Air Freight

Air freight is the shipment of goods through an air carrier. Express shipments are quickly transferred to global locations, providing speedy deliveries. These shipments tend to be smaller in size because air transportation can’t hold as much weight or mass as cargo boats. The cargo items must be deliverable by air, but air freight tends to be more expensive than other forms of transportation despite the gentler load. This method of transportation is best used for routine non-perishable goods or perishable and emergency products. Non-perishables include valuable items such as clothing, jewelry, mechanical parts, technology, and other goods that people purchase on demand. You are more likely to see small to medium-sized businesses using air freight, while larger corporations are more dependent upon ocean freight.

Ground Freight

The most affordable method of cargo transportation is ground freight, which can happen through rail shipping via trains or by truck delivery. This supply chain approach is most appropriately used for items that don’t have a time-sensitive delivery requirement, and the receiver isn’t in need of high-speed delivery. It also isn’t the best method for international delivery unless it supplements air or ocean freight. Ground freight also is limited in its size, and the main options of delivery include full, partial, and less than a truckload. The best approach for bulk or very large deliveries internationally is by boat.

Supply Chain Management

An international freight forwarder is in charge of supply chain management. They will be expected to perform consulting, obtain cargo insurance, and perform tariff reviews to help their client. They are also in charge of global logistics and help track shipments, log their locations, keep notes of delivery statuses, organize all necessary documentation, and comply with global regulations. International freight forwarders are also well connected and adaptive, coming up with solutions during unpredictable circumstances and relying on their global network. Additionally, they are fully licensed and certified to provide transportation services, along with years of experience in the business.

How International Freight Forwarding Benefits You

International freight forwarders do so much more than the simple ocean, air, and ground freight. In addition to documentation and tracking your shipments, they perform a variety of other tasks. 

Timely Delivery

Freight forwarders are very professional and dependable, providing the timely delivery of your bulk goods according to your timeline. They will work with you to create a schedule that fits your business’s needs. This prevents you from falling behind on customer orders, inability to meet your productivity goals, and other inconvenient scenarios that can cause your company to lose business.

Safety and Security

Your shipments can be insured if you choose. They will also be stored and packed according to strict safety protocols. The freight forwarder won’t embark on a delivery route without securing and reviewing the cargo. They also take notes and provide additional information on the cargo status, whether any of it was damaged in transit, and other important notes. 

Cost-Effective 

Freight forwarders know how to get the best deals due to their network around the globe. They reach out to partners and other associates they work with to help you get your goods transported at the most affordable price. 

Inventory Management 

The freight forwarders can help you meet the supply and demand required for your business to perform at total capacity. They will make sure you stay in stock according to your business’s needs and that your products are sourced appropriately. Because they are adaptive, you may be able to find multiple warehouse locations that can supply what you need should another warehouse run dry. 

Strong Global Network

The best freight forwarders are part of an extensive global network that allows them to adapt to unpredictable events. Joining hands with an experienced freight forwarder can help you get the logistics you need across over 190 countries and hundreds of combined freight forwarding companies to support your trade. This way, if something goes wrong with a shipment, you are still supported by an umbrella through the freight forwarding network to provide you with an alternate solution.
