As part of the Contract Packing Service we can act as your freight forwarder. Moorheys Freight forwarding is a service used by our clients that deal in national, international or multi-national import and export. While we as the freight forwarder don’t actually move the freight itself, we act as an intermediary between the client and various transportation services. Moving products from one destination to another can involve a multitude of carriers, requirements and legalities. Our freight forwarding service handles the considerable logistics of this task for the client, relieving what would otherwise be a formidable burden.
Moorheys Freight forwarding services guarantee that products will get to the proper destination by an agreed upon date, and in good condition, packed to your specification. The freight forwarding service utilises established relationships with carriers of all kinds, from air freighters and trucking companies, to rail freighters and ocean liners. Our Freight forwarding services negotiate the best possible price to move the product along the most economical route by working out various bids and choosing the one that best balances speed, cost and reliability to meet your needs.
Our freight forwarding service generally provides one or more estimates to the client along with advisement, when necessary of specific timescale and conditions of carriage. Considerations that effect price will range from origin and destination to special requirements, such as the refrigeration or, for example, transport of potentially hazardous materials. Assuming the client accepts our forwarder’s bid, the freight is prepared for shipping. Our freight forwarding service then undertakes the responsibility of arranging the transport from point of origin to destination.
