The door-to-port shipping term refers to the middle course of door-to-door and port-to-port shipping. The freight forwarder takes charge of the pre-carriage and main run of the shipping process. This means that the goods will be picked up at the exporter’s premises and delivered to the ocean port or airport of origin. The freight forwarder will use multi-modal transport, such as a truck and vessel to handle the beginning of the shipping process. The importer will be in charge of inland transport at the destination port. The door-to-port international shipping type is favorable for exporters who don’t have the capacity to arrange transport from their premises to the selected port of origin. But it is essential that the importer on the other end of the carriage has the means to arrange inland transport at the destination. This movement type is beneficial for exporters because they have the liberty to decide their mode of transport for international shipping. The freight forwarder can also offer solutions tailored to their needs.
