Selection of transport method:

based on the size of the load:

  • small loads / LCL - from 0,5 to 5 tons and / or from 0,5 to 10 m3,
  • full-container loads / FCL - load fills the whole container. The choice of the container depends on the type of purchased goods, its weight and volume.

based on who is responsible for the transportation of the load - according to INCOTERMS ® 2010, the most popular are:

  • FOB rule (free on board) - designated port of loading such as FOB Shanghai – responsilibity for transport rests in the hands of the buyer of goods. With a help of a forwarder buyer organizes the transportation / freight from the designated port. Buyer shall bear the cost of transportation, risk and will decide whether to insure the load for the duration of the process of transportation,
  • CIF rule (cost, insurance, freight) - designated port of landing, eg CIF Gdynia - responsilibity for transport rests in the hands of the seller who also organizes the unloading at the designated port, incurring the cost of transport and insurance, while the risk is taken by the buyer.

Billing for services is based on a VAT invoice covering part or the entire forwarding process - depending on the made arrangements.
