As shown by the CBP and TSA provisions, the government agencies responsible for customs clearance and homeland security are much more supportive of and willing to work with shippers that use sophisticated freight forwarding intermediaries. The best freight forwarders are at the vanguard of new technological advances and cutting-edge supply chain methodology. Their services can be customized for use by both the smallest and largest businesses and corporations. Freight forwarders can often find creative solutions where traditional supply chain handlers see obstacles. And they have the logistics insight to do the advanced planning that takes best advantage of their cutting-edge electronic tracking and documentation systems. The result is the kind of speed and efficiency at the critical point—border crossings—that eliminates delays and supports profitability.
