The freight forwarding profession is regulated in its access and its exercise. (Article R1411-1 of the Transport Code). The services that can be offered by a freight forwarder include:
• Consolidated shipment: several smaller shipments are assembled and shipped together to optimize freight rates and the security of the shipments,
• chartering: goods are shipped using a non-scheduled transport service by air, land, or sea,
• City office: the forwarder picks up retail packages or shipments that he entrusts either to common carriers or other freight forwarders,
• shipping organization: the forwarder picks up goods that are being sent from or sent to the country and arranges their delivery with the assistance of one or several common carriers by any mode of transport.
Freight forwarders in France must be registered and are regulated by the French administration. The successful registration of a forwarder is subject to two conditions: professional competence and professional integrity.
The certificate of professional competence, held by Erwan and Marjolaine Leteurtre for VignoblExport, distinguishes us from representatives who, unlike freight forwarders, act as simple intermediaries, with no obligation for results and with no civil liability insurance for the goods being transported.
