The integration of a carrier is not absolutely necessary for the transport of goods from one destination to another. However, because the import and export process is highly regulated and can be complex, many companies choose to use a forwarder to cope with the stress of transporting goods to the nearest destination. A shipping contract often limits the carrier`s liability for damage, unless the damage is caused by the carrier`s negligence in the maintenance of the goods. A shipping contract sometimes allows a forwarder to take a „pawn“ on his customers` goods for every money the customer owes the carrier. This means that the carrier can take over and sell the customer`s property if the customer is unable to settle the customer`s claims on the carrier.

Freight and cargo export and air export business reached an agreement as follows: Carriers are complicated, but a properly developed shipping agreement ensures that the forwarder and customer are on the same page. For a client, the definition of the services to be provided ensures the completion of all stages of the order.
