If your business is about to go international in shipping your products, it's time to consider how you're going to go about it. The easiest and least stressful way is to use freight forwarders in the UK. Freight forwarders streamline the shipping process for you, so you can focus on your business.

International freight rates are in a constant state of flux. Costs can change in as little as one day, allowing shippers to take advantage of lower rates. However, if you use a standard carrier, you will be locked into a rate for the duration of the contract, and thus removing your ability to take advantage of lower rates. Using a freight forwarder allows you to get lower shipping rates as the market fluctuates. Because there are no contracts when working with a forwarder, there is greater flexibility in the carrier you use. This gives you the advantage of altering the type of carrier to meet your particular needs for each shipment, such as cheaper or faster delivery.

With the use of Felixstowe freight forwarding the logistics of shipping are reduced for the business owner. Forwarding companies take care of all the logistics for you, finding the right carrier at the right price, securing insurance and obtaining delivery vendors. By using a freight forwarder, you only work with one company throughout the shipping process, which streamlines the experience and reduces complications. Coordinating the final delivery after your goods have reached their destination country can be the most difficult and complex part of the shipping process. Freight forwarders have extensive connections to find the right provider for your goods that will deliver them on time and on budget.

Not only do freight forwarding companies reduce the complexities of international shipments, but they also provide additional services not commonly found with standard carriers. One common added service is door to door insurance on your cargo. Standard carriers only insure the products for the duration of their part of the shipment. Freight forwarders; however, can insure the cargo from door to door, or throughout the entire shipment, not just on the carrier. They also provide order tracking, which allows you to locate your products on demand and keep up to date on their progress.

Over all, customs clearance in Felixstowe can save the company money on shipping costs, which can either save the end customer money or help the company earn higher profits. JS Forwarding is one such freight forwarding company that can help business owners get their products shipped with less hassle and lower costs.
