HISTORY OF FREIGHT FORWARDERS
The earliest records about freight forwarding describe International Freight Forwarders as Inn Keepers in London, England, Inn Keepers would hold and forward clients (guests) personal effects staying at their Hotel. The First Freight Forwarder on record is Thomas Meadows and company, of London. Thomas Meadows and Company was established in 1836. In 1889 a company called Rockwell International Freight bought out Thomas Meadows and Company. Delmar International then purchased Rockwell International Freight in 1990, Delmar was based in Montreal, Canada.
In early times, a freight forwarder was responsible for the transportation of clients cargo by way of organising and contracting different carriers, it was the job of the Freight Forwarder to handle documentation and keep his clients updated on the progress of cargo. The Freight Forwarders overseas agent would then look after the clients cargo.
Today in Australia, International Freight Forwarders operate in all capital cities and the basic principles of Freight Forwarding are the same. Freight Forwarders will look after the transportation of commodities and all of the associated documentation. Most Australian freight forwarders will work with a licensed customs broker. Australian Customs Brokers are regulated by the Australian Government. The digital/electronic age has stepped up demand for international trade and in turn demand for International Freight Forwarders.
