Report on: Agents for international freight
Introduction: The aim of this report is to introduce two agents for international freight. In order to choose a more suitable one, I have compared the differences between Globelink and FTD Shipping Agents.
Findings: By contrast, I find some differences between the two agents. First, both sea freight and air freight in Globelink are available, while only sea freight in FTD is available. So only Globelink is suitable for urgent orders. Second, the destinations in Globelink are worldwide, while FTD’s are
mainly in Europe. Third, Globelink completes all customs forms, while FTD do not. Fourth, FTD is useful for small orders. Fifth, the charges of Globelink is lower than that of FTD.
Conclusion: Globelink has more benefits than FTD does. It is more suitable for our exports to a number of countries around the world.
Recommendations: In order to lower the cost and ensure the orders in compliance with different demands, I would recommend that we choose Globelink for international freight.
