    Bali Intercont Cargo ready to export your goods to overseas destination.

    Locating an International freight forwarder is easy on the Internet. You can, of course, choose the traditional way of sourcing for contacts by looking up freight companies in print directories.

    But surely, this traditional method can never beat the convenience and benefits offered by the Internet. Here is how you can locate the right freight forwarder quickly and easy.

    Freight forwarder companies are often listed in various trade directories. From the perspective of these companies, being listed in such websites is a form of advertising. The more sites they are listed in, the more exposure they are going to get. That eventually leads to more leads, and more business.

    So that is the first place you should start – trade directories. Trade directories usually list all the information you will need about a freight forwarder. For example, you can find information such as pricing, delivery time frame, and port of departure / arrival. You would probably be most concerned with the ports. Remember, different freight forwarders serve different routes. So be sure to contact one that will pick up the cargo from where you reside, and send it over to the port that you want your cargo to arrive.

    According to Transport Intelligence’s (Ti) Global Freight Forwarding report, only 17% think there will be no disruption to air freight forwarding.

    Air freight appears to be under a greater ‘threat’ for traditional forwarders than sea freight, where only half of the respondents to the survey thought traditional forwarders would lose market share.

    The reason, says Ti, is the growth of the integrators in recent years and Amazon’s highly publicised shift into air freight. It could also be, of course, that despite far lower volumes, air freight makes up some 52% of the forwarding share in monetary terms.

    Armada transportationsIf you have a company that needs to move goods or products internationally, there may be times that you have to get a shipment there fast. If you don’t have items that are perishable or time sensitive then you may consider other options that will cost less. Using sea freight is not the fastest way to get product from one place to another but in many cases it will be the least expensive.

    Sea freight is particularly useful when it comes to shipping items that are very heavy or bulky. Obviously, a ship can handle much more volume than any other kind of transportation and weight is not much of an issue. If you have large skids of product that you need to move from one country to another than using sea freight is probably the best option.
