What is freight forwarding?

Freight forwarding

Freight forwarding (or a forwarder) company specialises in organising delivery and storage of cargo on behalf of its shipping consignees. Usually, freight forwarders don’t have their own transport (such as sea, road, air and railway), but works together with these service providers, which allows forwarder to give better price than getting one directly from a shipping company.

Forwarders job includes full shipping services, storage and warehouse services, preparation of export documents, negotiation freight charges and costs as well as insurances.

Our forwarding services

In our company, we currently work with transit goods via Finland and from Europe to Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. We help our clients to create best route and choosing right form of transport according to the goods. We will track the shipment, pay local charges and prepare all necessary documents. After the cargo reaches its final destination, you will receive only one simple invoice for the full service.

Before Minatex was established, we were working in the industry and constantly dealing with many shipping lines. After opening own forwarding company in 2005, we continued working with the same shipping companies, creating stronger and better relationships.

Our aim has always been to find new and more efficient ways to make shipping better for our clients.

We are constantly monitoring prices, ensuring that our clients receive the best price and exactly what they need. Starting from 2017,  we are aiming to expand and create new contracts with new locations, so we can serve our customers in the best possible way.
