Freight Forwarding Agents

Posted by Dale Greenwood on 4/5/2017

The freight forwarders used by a number of my clients are included in this short list. Since I have never done business directly with any of these companies (my clients have always independently chosen their freight forwarding agent and transacted business with them privately). By providing you with this list, I am not endorsing or recommending a particular freight forwarding service. I strongly suggest you do basic due diligence by checking with the U.S. Federal Maritime Commission, who regulates and licenses these carriers, before deciding to do business with one of them (the Maritime Commission’s website can be found at http://www.fmc.gov/ – or a summary of FMC rulings, shippers who are in good standing with the FMC, and shippers who are currently in good standing – http://www.dpiusa.com/signals/030404.html):
