Dubai is a known hub for international cargo movements besides having an evolved local business that is capable of exporting products out of UAE. So, Freight Forwarders in Dubai UAE have their hands full, handling the cargo from not only Dubai, but also from some of the neighboring countries and providing the best services. Freight forwarding, as a service, has many dimensions and the freight forwarding companies have a lot of responsibilities towards their customers.

Multi Modal Operations

The concept of freight forwarding includes the agency offering virtually door to door service. The cargo to be shipped out can be picked up from the doorstep of the exporting firm, brought to the nearest seaport or airport and shipped out and the freight forwarders can even ensure that the cargo, on arrival at destination is picked up and delivered to the customer. Since different modes of transportation are used within a single transaction, this is also called multi modal transport operation or MTO. The best Freight Forwarders in Dubai UAE will offer these services to their customers.

Freight Forwarder Takes Full Responsibility

As far as the customer is concerned, they could feel satisfied that they just need to hand over the goods to the freight forwarder and simply relax. The freight forwarder will engage the outsourced services of transportation by surface, from the premises of the customer and bring it to the point from where the cargo will be shipped out. If it is by sea, the preferred seaport could be Jebel Ali and the cargo is containerized unless it is much less in size. Even when the cargo is less than a container load, the freight forwarder can approach a consolidation services company to carry with other cargo. The basic purpose here would be to see that the cargo safely reaches the destination. Once stuffed into the containers, this is achieved, rather than sending them in loose condition.

Air Freight also Handled Efficiently

If the cargo being given to the Freight Forwarders in Dubai UAE for export is to be shipped by air, then also the processes remain almost the same. Here the cargo may go on regular aircraft or specialized cargo flights. The freight forwarders would have contacts with most airlines and would be able to bargain best freight rates on behalf of their customers, saving them the costs. It, therefore, comes to these 2 or 3 factors: offering transparent and professional freight forwarding services at economical costs ensuring full customer satisfaction.
