The freight forwarder acts as an intermediary between the company that makes the shipment and the final destination of the goods. Although they do not deliver themselves, they do offer various modes of transportation, such as sea freight, rail freight, land freight, and air freight.
Freight forwarders use their trusted contacts with carriers and partners, ranging from aviation specialists and auto companies to ocean liners, to negotiate the best prices.

Carriers usually handle bulk shipments, even from one international destination to another. Therefore, they are an integral part of the triangle operation.
At least three companies are involved in a triangular agreement (manufacturer, agent and end customer), each of which is located in a different country, despite the supply of goods and transportation.
Most freight forwarders are accredited economic operators, which allows them to benefit from simplified customs clearance, particularly pending import duties and taxes that may have to be paid before goods are released.
