A freight forwarder arranges for goods to be transported from one place to another, and a good freight forwarder ensures that your product deliveries arrive safely from your supplier to your office, and a lot takes place behind the scenes to make the process look seamless, efficient, and easy. 
Many freight forwarders also function as customs brokers, and they pick up the entire logistics process of moving your goods, which includes both logistics and customs. Your shipment will be transferred from the source to your end destination. It may include any or all of the following processes: arranging transport from the source to the port or airport for shipment, preparing documents, licences, and other paperwork for export at the source, negotiating, booking, and loading cargo for sea or air transportation, setting up insurance and tracking delivery as necessary, and arranging haulage and delivery to your chosen location in the UK. 
It goes without saying, that freight forwarders are a vital component in the import/export process. They have the connections and experience to help navigate the process. A freight forwarder is beneficial because they have connections across the world to find the right person for the job, regardless of where you are in the world you are importing from.
