The forwarding industry keeps evolving and ocean freight carriers and container ports keep changing processes and invent new terms and acronyms. Governing bodies implement new rules and guidelines all the time.


Do you struggle to understand what your freight forwarder quoted?


Do you have difficulty comparing freight quotations?


Do you have difficulty calculating total shipping charges?


Does your final freight invoice differ from what was quoted?


Do you get confused by all the acronyms like EBS, OTHC, DAD or GRI?


Do your customers, or suppliers, have different definitions for terms such as FOB or CFR?


Do you struggle to find freight related cost cutting opportunities?



Searching for answers on the internet is very time consuming and the information is not always reliable or conclusive.


Knowledge about freight forwarding operations is mostly shared and transferred at the workplace, from practitioner to novice.


Your Freight Forwarder might not be forthcoming with information.

Courses and books on freight forwarding (if you can find one) are more theoretical and less operational.

Build Credibility
In the eyes of our customers and employers we become more valuable when we solve their problems. And the better we solve problems, the more valuable we become. Only through learning do we gain the knowledge to solve larger and more complex problems.


Save Time
Instead of searching endlessly on the internet, or having to ask suppliers or colleagues, use a reference such as LOAD, SEAL & SHIP when confronted with charges, terms and acronyms you don’t understand.
