Q. What is a Air Freight Forwarder?
A. An Air Freight Forwarder provides pickup and delivery services under its own tariff, consolidates shipments into larger units, prepares shipping documentation, and tenders shipment to the airlines. Air freight forwarders do not generally operate their own aircraft and may therefore be called “indirect air carriers”. Because the air freight forwarder tenders the shipment, the airlines consider the forwarder to be the shipper.
