The freight forwarder is an individual or legal entity which provides services in relation to international freight. This entity is an intermediary between the exporter and the importer and the carriers. This position is official in most countries and its functions are defined within the scope of international trade as mediators in international operations involving land, sea, air, river or multi-modal transport.
We at Ibertransit prefer to refer to freight forwarders as transport “architects”. We design and control the work of the different players involved in the transportation of your goods at international level.
Strategic partners for import / export transportation.
The freight forwarder is a vital link in the international trade chain, which will advise, organise and coordinate all the operations necessary for transporting your goods from/to anywhere in the world, while striving to use the safest and most economic means and routes.
Ibertransit coordinates the use of the different means of transport and the companies best suited to delivering your goods as quickly and safely as possible and at the best available price. Furthermore, we are responsible for the administrative operations in connection with international transport, such as customs procedures, documentary credits, certificates of origin, insurance agreements, tax representation, etc.
The forwarder is responsible for the entire transport operation, notwithstanding the liabilities which may be applied to each and every one of the carriers involved in the operation.
