Choosing the Right Clearing and Forwarding Agent

Clearing and forwarding (C&F) agents are experts when it comes to getting the goods cleared through customs formalities, coordinating with the carrier and taking care of all shipping and delivery related activities. The presence of a C&F agent allows the exporter to concentrate on their core business activities. By selecting the ideal C&F agent you ensure smooth conduct of business and timeliness of delivery without actually getting involved in the clearing and forwarding activities. Selecting a C&F agent is a crucial part of your export business. The efficiency of your C&F agent will eventually impact the timeliness, which in turn will matter a lot to your customers. It will also decide the need for your involvement in the C&F process itself. While finalizing a C&F agent, you have to consider the services that a C&F agent can provide, what are the areas of expertise of your selected C&F agent(s) and what are the services that you expect out of them.
