Freight forwarders, or forwarding agents, arrange cargo movement to international destinations.  They are typically non-asset based and organise the supply chain, as well as preparing and processing documentation needed to ship goods internationally.  Information processed by freight forwarders includes the commercial invoice, the bill of lading, the shipper's export declaration, and other documents required by the carrier or country of export and import.  They are 3PL providers in the landscape of logistics intermediaries.  See also 4PL.
