As consumers continue to develop their interest in foreign goods and materials, freight forwarding is heating up the highways with more trucking opportunities than ever before.
As they receive information from manufacturers, freight forwarders then seek out shipment or storage methods as they send goods along to their final destinations. Obviously, the best choice is to keep the shipment moving and freight forwarders are turning to Internet load boards in order to find truckers who can take a haul. The difference between cashing in on your next load or deadheading it home may be with freight forwarding.
In the U.S., freight forwarding is a regulated business and all forwarders have to be licensed by either the Federal Maritime Commission for ocean shipments or the International Air Transport Association if they receive and handle air shipments. Truckers can rest easy knowing that this business is federally administered and should be wary of any non-licensed forwarders attempting to move cargo.
Freight forwarding agents rely on today’s technology to move shipments as well as handle invoices, BOLs, and other related documents making the business practically paperless. That’s why the best place for freight forwarding agents are Internet-based truck load boards like Getloaded, since forwarders are always “plugged in” to the Internet. Using freight load boards, forwarding agents communicate available loads to for haul and list new opportunities instantly.
