  • Companies can take advantage of space in ocean and air shipping containers to realize potentially big savings.

  • Understanding the risks to cargo can help companies properly protect their shipped goods.

Today’s global supply chains must contend with global issues, like tariffs, severe weather events and labor disputes. To provide relief from these challenges and help companies control their supply chain costs, C.H. Robinson has made available a white paper on the benefits of global freight forwarding.

The paper describes three areas where companies can use freight forwarding to reduce cost and complexity in global supply chains.

The first area is cargo consolidation. Companies can take advantage of space in ocean and air shipping containers to realize potentially big savings. The second area is risk management. Understanding the risks to cargo can help companies properly protect their shipped goods. The final area is customs management. Knowing how to navigate compliance requirements can keep goods moving across borders and help companies avoid costly fines.
