HISTORY OF FREIGHT FORWARDING

Freight Forwarding is an important piece in the production chain. Freight forwarders organise the physical movement of goods traded from the point of production to the ultimate final destination of the cargo. Freight forwarding may look as simple as transporting something from production point to end user, but in reality it is much more complex , it involves organising not only the movement of the shipment but the preparation of documentation in such a way so as to meet the destination countries requirements

There is not much difference in the responsibilities of freight forwarders today as compared to freight forwarders 100 years ago.

Freight forwarding dates back to the 1800’s. Inn Keepers were the original freight forwarders, they would look after the baggage of guests and then forward them on when requested. This method developed over many years and was further developed with the introduction of business to business baggage and contracts.

The history of freight forwarding dates centuries back. As of 1800, the earliest freight forwarders were known to be innkeepers who helped hotel guests by hold onto and re-forward their goods. This system progressed and evolved into business to business contracts over the years.

The role of a freight forwarder today is not much different to the past the biggest change has to do with the mode of operation, rather than the process. From the pen and paper era we have moved into the use of pre-printed documentation and digital technology which has revolutionized almost every shipping operation.

Improvement in transportation methods as experienced in the availability of reliable trains and steamships in the 1970s, international trading between countries received a big boost especially between Europe and North America. This trade increase has now transformed into a dominant industry.

The transportation of international cargo is essential for our modern trading . Freight forwarders provide the means to move goods from one place or country to another, without freight forwarding services the international economy would be in ruins. Like other industries the freight forwarding business is constantly changing with the introduction of new and better technologies..

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT BILLS OF LADING:

“Checking the details on the Bill Of  Lading or Seaway Bill”

Even small details noted on the Bill Of Lading need to be are entered carefully and should show the exact information about your shipment, ideally your Bill Of Lading or Seaway Bill should be letter perfect. When the Bill Of Lading of Seaway Bill is cut (an industry term, meaning issued) it will detail all the required information needed to identify your cargo. Bills Of Lading/ Seaway Bills are also vitally important, particularly when a dispute arises and there is possibility of a liability claim for damaged, lost or late shipments. Bills of Lading are considered title to ownership of the cargo.

“When will the Bill Of Lading Be Issued”

As stated above, CargoMaster will organise your letter perfect documentation. As an international freight forwarding specialist CargoMaster takes care to ensure things like loading and shipping dates, marks and numbers are accurate and the description of your cargo is accurate on your BILL OF LADING. CargoMaster is very aware of meeting maritime regulations. Dates are important, for example the date on the Bill Of Lading indicates when the shipment contract is enforced (a very important date) . Information required for the BILL OF LADING or Seaway Bill takes time to gather, from different sources ,so as such it may be that your container has been collected and loaded onto the vessel without a BILL OF LADING, this is common. Bills Of Lading are normally issued after the vessel sails (departs the loading port)  however they can be issued earlier if needed with special requests.

“How is the Bill Of Lading Compiled”

In relation to the flow of export documentation, various checks need to take place before the Bill Of Lading can be issued. For example details of the container number, bolt seal number, vessel information (name and Lloys number), weights, the number of pieces loaded and the voyage number. All details must be noted with great accuracy. This information is compiled by Freight Forwarders like CargoMaster and passed to the shipping line for entering into a shipping manifest. Your Freight Forwarder will also deal with Australian Border Force to secure an export number for your goods, in turn the export approval number is noted on the Bill Of Lading.border Fore and freight  .When exporting. For exports, from the perspective of documentation flow. There are a few processes that need to take place before the physical issue of a bill of lading. First and foremost, all relevant information such as container number, cargo details, voyage details, and freight details has to be collected accurately. That information is compiled by the shipping agent or VOCC into a shipping manifest. Once the shipping manifest has been cleared by the customs officers, then a Master Bill of Lading is issued. Therefore, it is common that the laden cargo container has been collected by the truck operator and delivered to the port without a Bill of Lading.

A Bill Of Lading serves as a contract between the International Shipping Company and the cargo shipper . You can compare a BILL OF LADING to most other types of contracts, for example a residential Tenancy agreement. Bills Of Lading must meet certain international convention standards:
