The Shipper 

In other words, you. The shipper is the first participant in the shipping process as he or she will reach out to a freight forwarder in order to ship goods overseas.

The Freight Forwarder 

This one is us. We arrange transportation of your goods on your behalf, and organize your entire shipping process.

The Carrier 

The Carrier actually transports your goods.


This party appears on your bill of lading and will be the party of contact throughout the shipping process. In addition, they will receive the shipment upon delivery.
