General Questions

Freight forwarding is a service used by companies that deal in international or multi-national import and export. While the freight forwarder doesn’t actually move the freight itself, it acts as an intermediary between the client and various transportation services. Sending products from one international destination to another can involve a multitude of carriers, requirements and legalities. A freight forwarding service handles the considerable logistics of this task for the client, relieving what would otherwise be a formidable burden. Route International Cargo provides the services guarantee that products will get to the proper destination by an agreed upon date, and in good condition. One of the many advantages of using Route International Cargo is that it handles ancillary services that are a part of the international shipping business. Insurance and customs documentation and clearance are some examples. Route International Cargo can save the client untold time and potential headaches while providing reliable transportation of products at competitive rates.
While there are several factors involved, the primary is market demand. However from mid-January through early February there is an upsurge of cargo moving to beat the Chinese New Year deadline whereby factories all over China shut down for weeks. This usually keeps rates high, as there are always space problems for cargo getting on vessels and space on airlines. From May through November this would be the “peak season” where there is a big demand for cargo moving into the Nepal, so the Carriers raise the rates during this period, with the GRI (general rate increase), and PSS (peak season surcharge). Another factor is fuel. The surcharge carrier can change when the oil prices rise of fall. Another factor is when there is heavy downturn in traffic and volume as a result of the current earthquake 2015 and strike on Kolkata port. This creates an air space and vessel shortage or a false space problem. This type of thing is not normal.
