John (p154) indicated that freight forwarders are just like high-street travel agents, except that they arrange transportation for freight, not people. Freight forwarders involved a big area of activity in arranging customs clearance for freight that moves internationally(this is sometimes referred to as brokerage and encompasses not just dealing with customs agencies, but also managing all documentation that should accompany freight).
