A Specialist Cross Trades Shipping Team

Cross trade shipments, also known as triangular operations or intermediation, occur when cargo is shipped from one country to another without passing through the country that the shipper’s business has been registered. These transactions can be coordinated electronically with help of specialist freight forwarding companies and are generally carried out by road, air or sea- depending largely on nearest exit point found near manufacturer/supplier and entry point nearest to delivery location. Many businesses choose this method for following reasons:

Shorter transportation times

Lower supply chain costs

High efficiency

Freight Agency have developed a specialist team, with a global network of industry experts in order to be able to deliver cross trade shipments.
