How Do Freight Forwarders Help You?

Freight forwarders can access a wide network of carriers, assisting in negotiating lower rates than businesses are capable of on their own, and they can assist these same businesses with custom regulations which can be a complex and time-consuming process. Whether you’re looking to ship domestically or internationally, Rinchem can help ensure your goods are shipped safely and efficiently, helping your shipments arrive on schedule. Our team can assist you with a variety of freight forwarding services such as:

    Arranging Transportation: Freight forwarders have access to a network of carriers and can help clients find the best transportation option for their needs. They can also negotiate rates with carriers on behalf of their clients.

    Warehousing: Freight forwarders can provide warehousing services for clients who need to store their goods before or after shipping. This can be helpful for clients who need to consolidate shipments or who need to store goods for a short period of time.

Our Rinchem agents will assist clients in understanding the different shipping options available, the regulations that apply to their shipments, and the best way to get their goods to their destination on time and within budget.
