Freight Forwarders looking to broaden their product/service offering
International freight forwarders act on behalf of exporters in arranging transportation services. They facilitate the international movement of goods by providing a wide range of advisory, administrative and physical services to the exporter.
The freight forwarding industry in Canada consists of some 280 companies that employ around 15,000 employees. These are made up of approximately 1,000 offices, which are located in 150 locations across the country. The majority of their offices are found in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.
The market is now demanding more services. This is why many freight forwarders are turning to Nefab, the global leader in collapsible wooden packaging for export solutions.
The Nefab ExPak is being chosen as the packaging for export shipments due to their light weight, strength, and ease of assembly. Old wood boxes simply take up valuable warehouse space, and are quite expensive to purchase and assemble. All those involved in the packaging process immediately notice benefits in ease of assembly and safety due to the crates being nail-less, for instance. Productivity has increased and the superior stacking strength has allowed Freight Forwarders the ability to store more finished goods in the same cubic space in comparison with the old packaging
