The short answer is that a freight forwarder is to cargo what a travel agent is to your vacation. You tell the freight forwarder where you want your cargo to go and they will make all of the arrangements for you. And while a freight forwarder typically does not own domestic trucks, trains, ocean freight vessels or cargo airplanes, they have negotiated rates with all of these types of carriers, so that you can ship your product less expensively as opposed to striking deals with each individual carrier on your own.
The longer answer is that a freight forwarder is an intermediary that performs many services in the shipping industry including: freight consolidation, document preparation, transportation pricing, cargo insurance, door-to-door capability, shipment visibility, export packing and Customs brokerage. A freight forwarder can often times even organize 3pl warehousing and inventory management for their clients. Because of their substantial buying power, the freight forwarder can typically offer considerable cost savings to the shipper.
