Freight forwarding

A freight forwarder, forwarder, or forwarding agent, also known as a non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC), is a person or company that organizes shipments for individuals or corporations to get goods from the manufacturer or producer to a market, customer or final point of distribution.[1] Forwarders contract with a carrier or often multiple carriers to move the goods. A forwarder does not move the goods but acts as an expert in the logistics network. These carriers can use a variety of shipping modes, including ships, airplanes, trucks, and railroads, and often multiple modes for a single shipment. For example, the freight forwarder may arrange to have cargo moved from a plant to an airport by truck, flown to the destination city, then moved from the airport to a customer’s building by another truck.

International freight forwarders typically handle international shipments. International freight forwarders have additional expertise in preparing and processing customs and other documentation and performing activities pertaining to international shipments.

Information typically reviewed by a freight forwarder includes the commercial invoice, shipper’s export declaration, bill of ladingand other documents required by the carrier or country of export, import, and/or transshipment. Much of this information is now processed in a paperless environment.

The FIATA shorthand description of the freight forwarder as the ‘Architect of Transport’ illustrates the commercial position of the forwarder relative to its client. In Europe, some forwarders specialize in ‘niche’ areas such as rail-freight, and collection and deliveries around a large port.

Multimodal transportation

Multimodal transport (also known as combined transport) is the transportation of goods under a single contract, but performed with at least two different means oftransport; the carrier is liable (in a legal sense) for the entire carriage, even though it is performed by several different modes of transport (by rail, sea and road, for example). The carrier does not have to possess all the means of transport, and in practice usually does not; the carriage is often performed by sub-carriers (referred to in legal language as “actual carriers”). The carrier responsible for the entire carriage is referred to as a multimodal transport operator, or MTO.

Article 1.1. of the United Nations Multimodal Convention (which has not yet,[when?] and may never enter into force) defines multimodal transport as follows: “‘International multimodal transport’ means the carriage of goods by at least two different modes of transport on the basis of a multimodal transport contract from a place in one country at which the goods are taken in charge by the multimodal transport operator to a place designated for delivery situated in a different country”.[1]

In practice, freight forwarders have become important MTOs; they have moved away from their traditional role as agents for the sender, accepting a greater liability as carriers. Large sea carriers have also evolved into MTOs; they provide customers with so-called door-to-door service. The sea carrier offers transport from the sender’s premises (usually located inland) to the receiver’s premises (also usually situated inland), rather than offering traditional tackle-to-tackle or pier-to-pier service. MTOs not in the possession of a sea vessel (even though the transport includes a sea leg) are referred to as Non-Vessel Operating Carriers (NVOC) in common law countries (especially the United States).

Multimodal transport developed in connection with the “container revolution” of the 1960s and 1970s; as of 2011, containerized transports are by far the most important multimodal consignments. However, it is important to remember that multimodal transport is not equivalent to container transport; multimodal transport is feasible without any form of container. The MTO works on behalf of the supplier; it assures the supplier (and the buyer) that their goods will be effectively managed and supplied.

Consolidated transportations

National transportation – transportation is small HVD cargos of different customers in the same direction on the same vehicle. National transportation can reduce the cost of delivery of goods and small HVD is not beneficial for the carriage of large and medium-large cargoes, as firms engaged in transportation of teams, have rate higher than other transport firms. In this case it is necessary to try to implement passing carriage .

Precast load – type of cargo for transportation of teams of parties that is completed by units of piece and tare volume.

Creating a modular cargo

A key link in the chain of transportation of cargoes is consolidation of small lots of multiple senders on a special stock FEC ( forwarding company ). Consolidation (consolidated) warehouse serves as a starting point for regular transportation of cargoes on the given route. Time of delivery in this case varies depending on the length of a complete set of the party, following the route of transportation and other factors.

In most cases, general cargo transported by road . Today, however, also often practiced international transportation of consolidated consignments by means of rail, water and air transport.

The scheme of transportation of cargoes

  1. transportation of general cargo from the shipper’s warehouse to the consolidation warehouse for batch picking.
  2. Processing load on the consolidation warehouse, which can include an additional package, use containers and so on.
  3. Customs clearance and other documents for the transportation.
  4. Sending a modular cargo to the country назначения автомобильным , водным , железнодорожным или авиационным транспортом.
  5. Customs clearance in the destination country, as well as the documents necessary for the subsequent sale of goods or the use of equipment.
  6. Delivery of a piece of cargo to the specified address.

Features groupage 

National freight transport by road, rail, sea, air transport. Depending on the specific conditions of each transportation of goods, the goods can be sent first to the consolidated warehouse of the transport company, and only then, in the formation of a common party, is loaded into a vehicle. Upon delivery options are possible, too. The cargo can be delivered either directly to the recipient, and the transport company warehouse in the region. There are the following supply chain: “Door-to-door”, “door-Warehouse”, “Warehouse-Warehouse”, “Warehouse-door” About all the nuances of transportation, the customer is obliged to consult the freight forwarding company . It also insures the goods and, if necessary, takes the registration of all related documentation.

Governing the carriage of cargoes:

  • Charter of motor transport (of November 8, 2007 N 259-FZ)
  • Law on forwarding activity (dated June 30, 2003 N 87-FZ)
  • RF Government Decree of 8 September 2006 N 554 “On approval of the forwarding activity Rules”
  • Order of the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation of February 11, 2008 N 23 “On approval of the registration form and forwarding of documents”

Customs clearance 

International freight involve compulsory customs procedures and pay the appropriate fees in line with the customs code TN VED (commodity nomenclature of foreign economic activity). Since LCL are composed of small consignments of various goods belonging to different recipients, the customs clearance of the entire administration is entirely impossible. Each of the cargo may have a different HS code, respectively, for the clearance rates for them will be different. For these reasons, usually customs clearance services by shipping companies and customs brokers are reduced to filling in the necessary documents, the definition of HS code, promote the most rapid passage of customs procedures and other actions, simplifying the interaction with the customs authorities.


The main advantages that are typical of precast traffic – is economical and easy to transport in this format. Significant savings are achieved through the efficient use of cargo space. In this case, can be quite affordable, even air travel , which generally have a high price. Usually transportation of cargoes is made in the format of “door to door”, so the convenience of this type of transport is also undeniable.


Road transport – this is the carriage of goods and passengers by land transport and cartage routes. The main areas of the appropriate use of road transport – hydrating and supply of goods to the main types of transport and delivery of industrial and agricultural goods over short distances, intercity transportation, delivery of goods for trade and construction. On long-haul road transport used for transportation of perishable, valuable, requiring fast delivery, inconvenient for handling other types of transport of goods. The advantage of road transport in the agility and flexibility, the lack of – quite high transportation costs.

Air cargo

Trucking committed by means of air transport
Air cargo – a more expensive method of transport than road , rail or sea transport . But the fastest delivery method , especially bulky or dangerous goods .

Also, there are three types of transportation :


Transportation by sea

Maritime transport is carried most of the cargo around the world.

This is especially true of bulk cargoes, such as crude oil, petroleum products, liquefied natural gas and chemical products in bulk. The second place on the volume of transport by sea containers occupy. Vessels carrying containers drove with universal vessels market as the standard 20- or 40-foot container can be placed any goods from needles to cars. While the processing of such vessels is reduced dozens of times, thanks to the unification of the transport system of the world in respect of container traffic. Important role played by mechanization and information support of transport processes.

Also, the specialized courts, which are designed to carry one or more types of cargo, car carriers, include ships reefer, Cattle, heavy, bulk (bulk carriers), lighters, tugs, etc. D.

Depending on the objectives and the type of cargo, ships are equipped with the features that reflect their autonomy, capacity, methods of loading and unloading, high-speed data; ability to withstand weather conditions for navigation area limitation, the ability to pass the Panama or Suez canals (panamax and Handymax), to maintain the temperature and atmospheric regimes cargo holds.

Line ships – ships that ply on a particular route between multiple ports on schedule.
Tramp vessels (English tramp -. Tramp) account for half of the world fleet units engaged in casual free shipping, free freight. They are not tied to specific geographical locations and are not burdened by long-term contracts for transportation.
Passenger ships and ferries occupy a separate niche in transportation by sea. The most common are linear. These from the regulatory authorities very high requirements for the design and supply.
Currently, maritime transport is an integral part of the global transport system.

Maritime transport and its activity is regulated by both national laws and international regulations, conventions and regulations, the implementation and observance of which is strictly controlled by all participating countries to sign certain obligations.

Particular attention is paid to the environment and safety of navigation. Given the amount of cargo that can carry one ship at a time, maritime transport can not be called slow. Example: 300,000 tonnes of crude oil at a time can be transported from the eastern port in the UK is one of the US ports on the east coast for ten days. Large container ships (5,000 containers), leaving from the port of Rotterdam (Netherlands), reach Shanghai (China) for 18 days.

The undoubted advantages of sea transport:

the relatively low cost of transportation;
large load capacity that allows to transport large shipments;
virtually no restrictions on the bandwidth;
common legal and juridical field with 400-year history.
Delivery of goods by sea is characterized by its versatility, reliability and low price. This method of transportation is selected to reduce the cost of cargo transportation. Maritime transport is particularly effective when transporting large volumes.

Rail transportation

Rail transportation are very, very cost-effective and provide great opportunities for the transport of objects large enough. Almost all transport loses its characteristics-duty rail. This allows you to be this type of transportation one of the most popular in the mining and production of heavy industry. One of the main tasks of economic development of this sector of the transport industry is the creation of full-fledged competitive market for direct participants in the transportation process, and for entities within the industry.

Customs clearance

We are engaged in customs clearance. To carry out customs control and customs clearance of persons transporting goods and vehicles, are required to provide the customs authorities all the necessary for this purpose the documents and information.

A specific list of documents required for customs clearance, depending on the direction (import or export), target movement of goods across the customs border, conditions of carriage, the form of settlements between partners selected customs regime, as well as the specific code of the goods according to the Commodity nomenclature of foreign economic activity of the CIS and related restrictions with it.

The package of documents for customs clearance of the consignment:

The foreign trade contract (sale, barter, supply agreement, invitation, etc…);
The invoice, pro forma invoice, a supplementary agreement on the contract.
Specification, packing list;
Commodity-transport documents (bill of lading, the TIR Carnet, an international automobile waybill (the CMR), Russian waybill (TTN), an air waybill, a railway consignment note;
Payment orders, cash orders, not repaid by the customs authority at the place of state registration of the participant of foreign trade activities (if any);
Documents required for the implementation of exchange controls and the confirmation of the customs value of goods (the transaction passport, shipment, insurance documents, billing documents).
Permits public bodies:
Permits other state organs (organs of internal affairs, the Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Communications, Ministry of Culture, etc…);
Certificates (origin, health certificate, certificate of safety, veterinary, phytosanitary certificate);
The above documents are available to the customs authority in the original performance; Security certificates, sanitary, veterinary and phytosanitary certificates may be presented in the form of a copy certified by the authority which issued the certificate.

Currently, in accordance with the Customs Code of the Customs Union, there is the term “customs declaration”, which is used instead of the term “customs clearance”.

Warehouse Logistics

Warehouse logistics – logistics section dedicated to managing the placement of the deposit, storage, replenishment and delivery of material resources to consumers.

The tasks of warehouse logistics:

  • Analysis of the effectiveness of the use of existing warehouses.
  • Determination of the number of warehouses.
  • Selecting the location of the warehouse.
  • Development of the logistics process in the warehouse.
  • Select storage method.

A full range of ancillary services related to transport and clearance.

Cargo insurance

Unfortunately, no one type of cargo can not give an absolute guarantee of delivery to the designated place. This is due to long distances, bad roads, weather conditions, accidents on the road, theft. All this relates to the transportation of a risky field. Therefore, the owners are forced to resort to the cargo insurance.

As a rule, many transport organizations maintain cooperation with insurance companies and problems in registration of insurance documents are ready to take over.
In most cases, the goods are insured against all risks – be it damage, total or partial loss. The validity of the insurance is valid throughout the entire transport path – from loading, during transport, warehousing, unloading, up to the delivery of the goods to the customer.
If an insured event occurs, the company-the carrier is obliged to inspect the goods, to assess the damage, to make the necessary documents and submit them to the insurance company for further consideration.

Protection and support of cargoes

If the customer requires protection and tracking of goods in road transport companies that provide such services. To do this, they have an agreement with security services, which are working on the route, determine a safe parking space, shall protect them, provide a means of communication.


forwarding services are provided for rapid transportation of goods and deliver them to a saved state. This service requires support of cargoes, the development of more cost-effective and shortest route, paperwork. Forwarding enables the customer to save time and save him from personal appearance during transport. The client, in this case, can track the movement of their cargo along the whole route, communicating on a mobile phone with a company representative.

Rental of machinery

In addition to the direct transport of goods, transport companies can provide specialized equipment for rent. This is especially interesting to customers engaged in sporadic and limited in transportation time. As a rule, rental of specialized equipment, such as long-length board, accompanied by the development of the route, the services of a specialist to work with the equipment, loading and unloading operations, drafting documentation.

Loading and unloading

Also, to related services can be attributed to the implementation of the transport companies handling operations for which special arrangements apply. Between the carrier and the customer should be contracted, which reflects the point of providing this service. Responsibility for the preservation of the goods in the course of such work lies with the transport company.


When transporting cargo can not do without drawing a huge number of different securities: payment, handling, insurance and customs documents. Transport company all the necessary documentation completely takes over.

Placing the goods in stock

Most transport companies have technically equipped warehouse, which can be at a certain time to put the goods that came from the client for subsequent transport. In addition, services can be provided on the packaging, repackaging, labeling of cargo crate.


Transport companies are also working with modular cargoes from different clients. Formation of goods takes place on the territory of the carrier, and can be stored in the warehouse of the customer. This service allows the shipping company significantly save power and money, as disadvantageous to use a separate transport unit for the carriage of small quantities. A customer saves on the cost of delivery.

Sure, there are other additional services provided by transport companies. This is primarily dependent on the company’s carrier, the ability to maintain and preserve its reputation, attitude and customer, as well as to respond flexibly to changes in the transport market.
