  • Forwarding agent / Freight forwarder

    A forwarding agent plays a major role in foreign trade and in the transport sequence, in which he acts either as an authorised agent or as a freight forwarder. As authorised agent, he acts on behalf of the shipper at loading, and of the consignee at discharge, in accordance with specific instructions from both. In this capacity, he is subject to the laws governing mandates, and is therefore only liable if he has committed a breach of duty. As forwarding agent, he is solely responsible for the carriage throughout and, as such, has full control of operations and may take any step he sees fit. Since he is liable for the outcome of his undertaking, he carries responsibility for the carriage and may be liable even if he made no error of judgement.
