To put it simply, a freight forwarder is a company which arranges the storage and shipping of goods on behalf of it's shippers. We're essentially the middle man in between the client and transportation companies. The main services which freight companies provide are;

The Vice President of the European Commission, Siim Kallas has summarised changes to the formalities of customs procedures in ports in order to assist the movement of freight into short sea shipping lanes.
The EU plans to improve customs procedures to try and ease congestion on the highways. Separating non-EU from EU freight and streamlining customs formalities are just two of the ways in which they hope to achieve this.
A third of freight is currently transited on ships, and half is still transported on the roads. Industry insiders complain that they are forced to move freight on the roads due to the long delays at ports, sometimes waiting for days for clearance from customs.
