What sets a Freight Forwarder apart?
Freight forwarders can be distinguished from other sorts of freight company by the fact that, unlike a haulage company or shipping company, a freight forwarder doesn’t necessarily do the physical moving of cargo themselves – instead, a freight forwarder uses their excellent knowledge of the transport industry, their connections and logistical ability to coordinate other companies in the most efficient manner possible, making sure that a consignment gets where it needs to be.
Considering the proportion of freight consignments that must travel distances which aren’t covered in their entirety by any one freight company, freight forwarders suddenly become crucial – without them there, planning a journey at all could require complex freight industry knowledge and connections, something unavailable to the average person.
Of all the freight forwarders in the UK, few can match the experience, reliability and industry connections of Graylaw Freight.

What is the role of a Freight Forwarder?
A freight forwarder uses their extensive expertise in freight movement and their professional contacts within the cargo industry to plan the most efficient route for cargo to take to reach its goal. This involves looking at the speed of a given route, the safety, the cost and the conditions likely along the way – even if they cross the transport networks of a number of other haulage or shipping companies, involve many modes of transportation, and even cross nations and continents. Whatever it takes to get your cargo where it needs to go – Graylaw Freight is here to be the freight forwarder you need.
