Risk and Compliance Solutions for Freight Forwarders

Freight forwarders of all sizes are often expected to be global experts in many areas of shipping on behalf of their clients.

From selecting reliable air carriers for timely air, land or sea shipping solutions, to ensuring that the entire supply chain is on-boarded and flow down requirements reach third parties, freight forwarders are now responsible for many aspects of business.

Informed Risk can help freight forwarders to manage these responsibilities.

Our services include:

  • High risk, freight shipments – For commercial teams dealing with requests for cargo be sent to sensitive countries with trade export controls, we provide training, support and clear, up-to-date guidance on best practices.
  • Bidding for large contracts – We offer assistance with detailed tender questions about your processes and policies, increasing your success rate when submitting bids to large companies.
  • Supply Chain Responsibility – We will ensure that you remain up to date with the ever-changing legal compliance responsibilities in global supply chains.
  • Questions from your bank – If you experience problems or delays to international payments when dealing with, ‘sensitive countries’, we will help you provide your bank with answers to its questions and speed up your processes.
  • Code of ethics – We can help you to demonstrate your ethics and compliance standards to your important suppliers, enabling you to register with them quickly, easily, and with the evidence that they require to hand.
  • Prioritising your key strategic business risks – We will help you to discover your business’s key strategic risks and find solutions for them, so that you can grow and operate confidently across the globe.

Highlighting risk is one thing, but the real talent is the team’s ability to also provide some innovative, practical solutions. Hilary and Chris have both demonstrated this ability over the years and I am delighted to support their continued dedication to the industry.
