Freight Forwarder Winnipeg
Freight Forwarding Services
Freight forwarders handle freight and cargo as it moves across different carriers and modes of transport. A freight forwarder takes your carriage from origin to destination, keeping on top of the carriers, while handling the freight (processing any relevant work). Our Winnipeg forwarding division are pros at managing any international freight shipments.
What Expectations to Have for a Freight Forwarder
After your first contact with a Winnipeg freight forwarding company, you’ll receive a quote for all services. This includes international shipping, any carrier charges, insurance, the forwarding fees and duties.
A freight forwarder will create a timeline and should make a case for any transfers and transportation choices. The company will be versed in import/export and customs law. They can advise you on the nuanced laws related to your cargo.
After you reach out to our Winnipeg freight forwarding service, we’ll coordinate with our carriers. This means we’ll get our carriers organized, complete all documentation, take care of packaging and confirm all amounts.
Topics to discuss before committing to a Freight Forwarder from Winnipeg:
- Is air travel necessary for my freight? If yes, did the International Shipping Association stamp your freight provider as approved? It may not be 100% necessary, but it’s a clear mark the company operates with complete integrity.
- When you check the name of your freight forwarder, do you find they work honestly with carriers and past customers?
- Does your freight provider have a vast network of carriers, both domestic and international partners?
- How do they stay in touch with carriers (online tools, by phone, etc.)?
- What level of resources and services does your freight forwarder provide? Are they enough?
- When it comes to insurance, does your freight forwarder provide ample options such as “errors and omissions insurance”?
- How is the customer service of your freight forwarder? Are they skilled, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable? Do they provide web-based real-time tracking, monitoring your Freight Forwarding code, as it passes through our international forwarding agents?
- Confirm you’ll get expert help with permits, regulative documents, freight insurance and Letters of Credit.
- Make sure they handle packaging/creating containerization, distribution, inventory management, customs clearing and repositing.
