Shipping your product to a foreign country requires an understanding of packing, labeling, insurance, Incoterms, and documentation. Many companies use freight forwarders to assist with shipping and documentation. A freight forwarder is an agent for moving cargo to a foreign country. Freight forwarders can provide companies with quotes for shipments, make freight arrangements, and product export documents.
