Transportation of goods by air is one of the most common choices for companies that need quicker conveying. Transportation of goods by air is a suitable option when the transfer of goods is urgent. Freight forwarders can assist you through the complicated air freight process. They not only help in picking a carrier but also arrange paperwork of the entire national as well as international air freight transaction. They also help coordinate the plan from pick up, warehousing, docking to delivery. They are committed to offer faster transit times and have a wide area network of carrier and service choices.
By definition a freight forwarding supplier is a third party provider who takes care of all of the logistics involved in the shipment of goods from one place to the other. Your freight services provider will take charge of arranging for all of the carriers and transportation needed to get your goods to their ultimate destination. Typically, you would not use freight forwarding for a local or domestic removal as the logistics involved with such shipments are not as complicated as those involved with international freight – the same cannot be said for sending cargo overseas. When it comes to sending cargo overseas, it is best to rely on the expertise of a professional freight forwarder.
A bill of lading (sometimes abbreviated as B/L or BoL) is a document issued by a carrier which details a shipment of merchandise and gives title of that shipment to a specified party. Bills of lading are one of three important documents used in international trade to help guarantee that exporters receive payment and importers receive merchandise. A straight bill of lading is used when payment has been made in advance of shipment and requires a carrier to deliver the merchandise to the appropriate party. An order bill of lading is used when shipping merchandise prior to payment, requiring a carrier to deliver the merchandise to the importer, and at the endorsement of the exporter the carrier may transfer title to the importer. Endorsed order bills of lading can be traded as a security or serve as collateral against debt obligations. Continue reading “Bill of Lading, a definition”

Jakarta – Indonesia’s large population of over 250 million people and a relatively good growth rate boosted the business sector of logistics. In addition, Indonesia’s diverse commodity potential is also another driving factor.
In addition, the condition of Indonesia as an archipelagic country with more than 17,000 islands and with about two thirds of the region in the form of oceans is a challenge as well as opportunities of Indonesia’s logistics sector.
On the other hand, the level of competition in the logistics sector is getting tighter as a result of globalization. Global bidding practices in logistics, for example, demand the competence requirements of world-class logistics companies. Without winning the global tender, logistics companies will only receive a lower value of logistics services.
