Freight and Logistics involve the transportation of goods by air, land, sea, and rail. They also involve supporting services such as warehousing, storage, freight forwarding, and customs brokerage for both domestic and international trade.
Cargo forwarding services are passive because they only deliver on the customer’s expectations. Logistics services are proactive because their goal is to continuously meet the customer’s needs.
The buyer bears the freight transportation costs. However, the seller assumes responsibility for the goods because they still belong to him during transit.
