Freight forwarder services are companies that make it easier for you to sell and ship raw materials and finished goods overseas.
They may own their own ships, trucks, and aircraft or they may contract with other international shipping companies (like DHL, Fedex, shipping companies, etc) and provide warehouse space for storing goods before they are shipped.
Another key benefit is that they understand both U.S. export regulations and the importing rules of foreign countries, and handle all the paperwork to comply with both.
Within the US, the two main regulatory bodies that oversee freight forwarders are the International Air Transport Association to handle air cargo and the Federal Maritime Commission for sea cargo.
