Selecting a Freight Forwarder

When shipping a product overseas as part of a commercial transaction, the exporter must be aware of packing, labeling, documentation, and insurance requirements. An international freight forwarder is an agent for the exporter and can move cargo from “dock-to-door,” providing several significant services.

In this WEBINAR you will learn how to select a forwarder; how a freight forwarder can help minimize shipping costs; documents that forwarders can process and submit on your behalf; and how forwarders coordinate with their counterparts in other countries to clear customs and get your goods to the customer.


NOTE: DECSC does not endorse any particular freight forwarder. The list of freight forwarders below is a partial list and is made available for your convenience as we continue to add more names from the Southern California area.

FEDEX Freight Forwarding
UPS Freight Forwarding
DHL Freight Forwarding
