Package Forwarding Defined


Package forwarding is a term that has been newly appointed to an area within the logistics industry responsible for managing the flow of goods between retail merchants, often online retailers, and consumers outside the country boundaries of the merchant. 

The emergence of online commerce has ushered in the need for intermediary logistics providers capable of handling massive volumes of customer support, a fundamental requirement of ecommerce environments, along with highly sophisticated warehouse management systems to efficiently manage the steady flow of goods in and out of distribution facilities.

According to Wikipedia, "Package forwarding is an international shipping service offered by shipping companies to international online shoppers who want to do cross-border online shopping.
