Freight Forwarder Ottawa
Freight Forwarding Services
Freight forwarders move cargo and freight along as it crosses different carriers and modes of transport. A freight forwarder will organize your carriage from origin to destination, dealing with the carriers that handle the freight, and focus on processing any work that’s necessary. Our Ottawa forwarding division is comfortable handling any international freight shipments.
Expect These Things from a Freight Forwarder
The initial contact with an Ottawa freight forwarding company will end with them giving you a quote for carrier charges, any international shipping fees, duties, insurance and the forwarding fee.
A freight forwarder should know why their timeline contains any transfers and transportation choices and make their reasons clear. Given they are experts on import/export and customs law, the freight forwarders will advise you on any important laws for your cargo.
Once you choose our Ottawa freight forwarding service, we’ll coordinate and work with our carriers to verify amounts, complete all documentation and take care of packaging.
