If, like most people, you are busy doing what you do best, running a successful business, involving a lot of toll, sweat and blood to achieve what you have. Having a portfolio of happy, satisfied customers is your reward. Sometimes though, getting into the bureaucratic nitty-gritty of supplying your end product to the keen client, can be more complicated than the task of running your business and the day to day sweat.
If you ship large quantities of goods, or ship goods that need to be protected during transfer and safely delivered then chances are you will use pallets to do this (unless your product is very small, for example bolts and screws, or very large like big machinery) Using pallets makes shipping more secure and, more importantly, is the most cost effective way, maximizing space. The best LTL freight rates can be obtained by transporting goods throughout North America using pallets.
What is a freight forwarder?
If your business sells goods to a client in another country, for example shipping between U.S. and Canada, you will need the expertise of a freight forwarder. So, what can a freight forwarder do for you and your company? As we said, if you’re selling a product outside of your own country then you know the challenges in getting your product to your end customer.
