Frequently Asked Questions

Freight forwarders handle various aspects of goods transportation via air, land, and sea. Generally, they are in charge of booking cargo space, negotiating freight rates, preparing and processing documentation (such as bills of lading, airway bills, packing list, certificate of origin, and customs paperwork), arranging transportation, and tracking shipments from origin to destination.

The role of a freight forwarder is to streamline the complexities of goods transportation. At TFI, we hold agreements with a global agent network consisting of shipping lines, airlines, and trucking firms. This enables us to present you with competitive rates.

As your chosen freight forwarder, we take on the responsibility of educating and assisting our clients in navigating the intricate and dynamic landscape of import and export regulations. The key advantage is that we serve as your direct point of contact, eliminating the need to communicate with multiple entities.

For small and medium-sized enterprises, a freight forwarder effectively serves as an outsourced department, attending to the logistical demands of the company.

Freight forwarders can handle various types of shipments, including full-container-loads (FCL), less-than-container loads (LCL), air freight, oversized cargo, hazardous materials, perishable goods, and more.

Reach out to us with the specifics of your shipment such as the length, width, height, and weight. For machinery, equipment, or vehicles, please provide the make, model, and other details essential to the estimate.

Our in-house team will send you a quotation. Upon reaching an agreement, we can work out further details, such as the date of pick-up and the necessary documentation.

Freight rates are determined based on factors such as the type of cargo, mode of transportation, distance, route, container size (for ocean freight), and current market conditions. Freight forwarders negotiate rates with carriers on behalf of shippers. To request a quote, contact us or send us an email, and one of our sales representatives will get back to you shortly.

Yes, we do. We have a strong relationship with the leading cargo insurance providers, so you can have peace of mind that your goods are protected against loss, damage, or theft during the transit. Our team recommends the best insurance companies and coverage that suit your budget and special requirements.

Yes, many freight forwarders offer customs clearance services as part of their offerings. With a certified team of in-house customs brokers, TFI has expertise in navigating the complex customs procedures and regulations of different countries.

Most freight forwarders provide tracking services that allow you to monitor the status and location of your shipment in real-time. This tracking information helps you stay informed about your cargo’s progress. To track your shipment, enter your shipping tracking code here.
