Freight forwarding is the transportation of goods or "freight" to domestic and international
locations. Freight forwarding can cover import, export and third party movements and goods can
range from furniture, cars and electronics to clothing, produce, machinery and parts. This includes
dangerous or oversized goods.

goods internationally. Through modern advances and a network of trusted distribution and
forwarding centres, goods can be forwarded with efficiency. BR International's meticulous and

Air Freight Services
Air freight is known as the expedited form of forwarding. Reliability and speed are amongst the
benefits, whilst web-based tracking allows the real-time status of freight to be monitored from
destination to arrival. Forwarding freight via air can allow for a direct to location service. Same day
express services are available for time-sensitive freight including perishables.
Because of the speed of process, less stringent packaging and materials are required for goods.
Security for air freight is high given the minimal time in transit, less handling that is required and
acuity of tracking.
Sea Freight Services
Sea Freight is also a reliable method of freight forwarding and is often the premium choice for
high-volume freight. Transport and delivery times can be longer however forwarding freight via sea
can be 3 - 5 times more cost effective. Sea freight containers can carry more weight (up to
3750kgs) so it is often recommended for high-volume transfers. Freight forwarding via sea has
less carbon emissions than air freight.
