Air Freight Forwarder

Airfreight forwarders do not generally operate their own aircraft and may therefore be called “indirect air carriers”. Because the airfreight forwarder tenders the shipment, the airlines consider the forwarder to be the shipper.

A bill of lading is a binding contract that serves three main purposes: (1) a receipt for the goods delivered to the carrier for shipment; (2) a definition or description of the goods; and (3) evidence of title to the relative goods, if “negotiable.”
