International freight forwarding specialists ensure that their company and clients remain compliant with import and export laws and regulations. They understand customs rules, regulations and terms of trade, and know when to escalate issues. They have skills around customs procedures, classification of goods, modes of transport and relevant paper and electronic documentation.

They are responsible for shipment bookings, liaison with carriers, ports and handling agents, transport requirements, sales quotations, invoicing, financial procedures and customs processes and regimes. Clients must be kept informed of progress and this requires skills and behaviours in customer service linked to an appreciation of international cultures and different working practices.
