Q: What is a freight forwarder?

Freight forwarders organize the safe and efficient movement of goods on behalf of another person, handling shipment, taxes, customs and duties (often across borders).

Q: Do I need a freight forwarder?

A: If you need to ship goods to another location, most often overseas or to another country, then the services of a freight forwarder are very helpful in expediting the shipment.

The following list has been compiled for customer convenience, though Blinds.com is not associated with these companies, and does not endorse them. These are only contact numbers. You must select a freight forwarder, who will then give you a ship-to address once arrangements have been made. Note: you usually need the weight of the shipment for pricing and rates.
