A freight forwarder is a professional who works as a middle man between importers, exporters and other companies, ensuring that goods are transported and delivered safely, on time and at the most convenient of costs. Freight forwarding jobs require serious people since the success of the venture depends upon the abilities of the person chosen and entrusted with them. To put into consideration the customers' requirements as well as the conditions of the transporting companies requires a great deal of wit.

Forwarding јobs, as offered by most companies, requires a person with the ability to research and plan effectively, the most convenient ways and routes to be used in the shipping of the goods. This is mostly through taking into account the nature of the goods, the amount of transport time as well as the security arrangements. In case there are perishables, the freight forwarder should be able to plan effectively for the special materials or equipment that is required in the transportation of these goods. Concerning the security, it is within the freight forwarders job mandate to ensure that appropriate security arrangements are made for the goods.

Another very important activity that is done in a freight forwarding job is the packaging of the goods that are to be transported. This is through taking into account some factors involved, such as the climate, the terrain of the route through which the goods will be transported, the weight of the goods, their nature and also their value. The packaging is very important in that it ensures that the goods will be delivered in a good condition to the clients. This is because the job success depends chiefly on customer satisfaction.

The ability to negotiate for contracts as well as transport costs are a maјor requirement if one is going to take up a freight forwarding job. The ideal person should be able to negotiate for the most suitable deal that ensures a win-win situation for the shippers and the transport companies. The success associated with this kind of јob mainly depends on how profitable the deals are and how the goods are delivered by the most cost-effective company.

For one to be successful at freight forwarding, they must be capable of obtaining the right documents that are required for the transportation of goods as well as preparing the documents to avoid any incidences with the customs departments. Obtaining documents relating to insurance coverage for the goods being transported is also a maјor duty of a freight forwarder. Obtaining the best insurance coverage to satisfy the clients regarding the safety of their goods is very important.

Most freight forwarding јobs would clearly specify in their requirements that they need a person of vast knowledge. This knowledge includes knowledge of relevant legislation, political factors that determine the transportation of the goods across some regions, and other related factors that could possibly affect the movement of the goods in the process.

Just like any field, the freight forwarding industry has јobs that require qualified personnel to ensure the smooth running of the business. To manage the industry better, the jobs are broken down into different categories and titles. This is to ensure that the division of labor and specialization is achieved so each individual is allocated what they are best at. It is also the only way that tasks can be broken down and be delegated to different individuals of which to be in charge. The different јobs call for different qualifications and experiences јust like any other field. The јobs may be on a contract or permanent basis. Examples of freight forwarding јobs include the following:

Freight Forwarders

First, there are freight forwarders who do the actual transportation of goods from one place to another. A company may decide to do this on its own or decide to contract this јob to another transport service provider. Most freight forwarding companies contract this service from specialized individuals and companies who ensure that the goods are delivered as required. They do this by signing a contract that stipulates their operating terms and how payments are calculated and made. This job carries the bulk of the freight forwarding industry.

Import Coordinators

Import coordinators are also part of the freight forwarding industry. These are people or groups of people, preferably companies which specialize in handling imports from different countries. They ensure that the goods are received and stored safely as they await clearing and forwarding. Such people or companies are normally held responsible in case goods disappear or get damaged during the importation process. They therefore plan for the receipt of goods from other countries and ensure that all the import requirements are met so as not to conflict with the law or other set regulations.

Logistics Agents

Logistics agents also form an important group in the freight forwarding job sector. These are the people who know all of the customs processes and requirements. Since most of the cargo being transported is not accompanied by the consignee, there is a need to have logistics personnel who will arrange for the clearing and forwarding of the goods once they reach customs. Without such personnel, a consignment is bound to be delayed at the port for longer periods awaiting clearing before it can be collected by the owner. This will cause unnecessary delays and even interfere with the state of the goods, especially if the goods were perishable.

Customer Service Representatives

Customer service representatives also form an important wing of freight forwarding jobs. These are the people who deal with inquiries and complaints from the customers. This may relate to the status of different consignments, lateness in delivery of a particular consignment, and when a certain consignment is expected to arrive among others. They represent the face of the company and they have to have full knowledge and understanding of the processes and services of the freight company. Ignorance of the processes and services of the freight company will mean that the customer service representatives will be unable to answer questions from customers regarding certain issues.
