International freight forwarding

Optimise your supply chain and logistics

At BRi we like to think that we’re very fortunate to be a member of the community of freight forwarders, and a formidable one at that. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than knowing what we do, and the care we take, can make a real difference to the lives of our customers.

A freight forwarder is a company that arranges the shipping of cargo to its destination on behalf of a corporation, a company, or an individual. These may be importers or exporters, with manufactured goods or raw materials.

International freight forwarders are experts in logistics, using a variety of carriers to get the goods to their destination without ever handling the freight itself. Often several modes of transport are used to ship any given consignment – such as truck pickup from the supplier in one country to a seaport for marine transport to another country, on to customs for clearance then another truck for delivery to the new destination.

The modes of transport subcontracted are usually aircraft, cargo ships, tanker vessels and grain carriers, and rail and road transport.

International freight forwarders specialise in the preparation of often complicated customs declarations and the associated duties payable. A range of other documentation is typically reviewed including the bank’s letter of credit, commercial invoice, bill of lading, and assorted documents required by the carrier.

Other activities include arranging cargo insurance, warehousing of goods, and container tracking.
