To help make the process easier, our team is highlighting
Anyone can claim they are a freight forwarder. By ensuring the freight forwarder you’re planning on utilizing has experience, understands both the domestic and international shipping industry, and will help you avoid any customs, warehousing, and routing problems before they arise.
At Bruning International, we have been offering our customers the most competitive pricing available and the straightforward solutions for navigating the complex global marketplace since 1975. Our freight forwarding services include export, import, breakbulk, heavy lift, project cargo, and custom crating.
When shipping internationally, it’s crucial for your freight forwarder to have a network of business partners in the country you’re importing and exporting from. If the freight forwarder has great relations with a company in India, it won’t make a difference if you’re shipping to or from India. With over 200 worldwide-integrated offices of freight forwarders and customhouse brokers, you won’t have to worry about the local handling of your international shipments.
International shipping oftentimes goes beyond air and ocean and your freight forwarder should be able to handle these other aspects, such as the rail and/or trucking portion. If you are interested in using the freight forwarder for numerous shipments moving forward, ask about the services they offer to ensure they have the services you need.
If the freight forwarder does not have any references, it should be a big red flag! Make sure to ask for references and actually read them.
