Global Seafreight Forwarding Market Size, Status and Forecast 2019-2025

Seafreight forwarders, also known as non-vessel operating common carriers, are intermediary agents that arrange shipments for industries from manufacturers to the final point of distribution. They have long-term contracts with shipping line carriers for the movement of cargo. This enables them to offer secure movement of cargo at low rates. They act as supply chain experts, and their services include commercial invoicing, declaration of shipper’s export, packaging, documentation, warehousing, and distribution at a destination.
One of the major services provided by forwarding companies is the assistance in cargo packaging, consisting of a description of how a specific cargo should be packaged for safe and secure transportation. The type of product, the time required to reach the destination, and weather conditions prevailing in that specific sea route determine the selection of the type of packaging. Bulk liquids are transported using special flexi tanks with multi-layered bladders. Specialized temperature-controlled containers are used to transport pharmaceuticals to protect their physical, chemical, and biological attributes. According to the seafreight forwarding market analysis, the packaging services will account for major share of the market throughout the forecast period.
In terms of volume, APAC is the largest market for seafreight forwarding and accounts for the largest market share during the forecast period. The presence of the main manufacturing hubs in countries such as China and India has made APAC a major shareholder of the global market. Other factors like the massive trade volumes in Japan, China, and India also drives the seafreight forwarding market growth in this region.
In 2018, the global Seafreight Forwarding market size was xx million US$ and it is expected to reach xx million US$ by the end of 2025, with a CAGR of xx% during 2019-2025.
