Shipping: Freight Forwarding

Freight forwarding companies deliver your products to your doorstep.

Some freight forwarders, such as FedEx or UPS, can handle all aspects of the import-export process, from picking up your products at your supplier’s to delivering them to your doorstep.  These companies take care of the logistics and customs as well – and help you and your supplier prepare all the necessary import-export paperwork.  They also have customs brokers at your port of entry to sort out customs duties and tariffs.

Other freight forwarders might just ship your products from the port of exit to the port of entry.  It’s then your responsibility to clear them through customs and get them delivered to your doorstep.

To find freight forwarders, simply do a search on the Internet.  Look for a company with the right geographic reach, services, and costs.  Inquire about customs duties and fees.  Negotiate prices.  Also, if you have specific needs, such as special packaging requirements, say so upfront.
