Differences between China Freight Forwarder and Chinese Sourcing Agents
Chinese sourcing agents are individuals and companies that help to identify product suppliers and manufacturers in China.
They identify the suppliers or manufacturers depending on the specific requirements and standards of the importer.
China sourcing agents can work as translators, help determine suppliers, may repackage goods and sources for goods in China.
Normally, they play an important role when an importer does not have a professional network in China.
On the other hand, China freight forwarders arrange for shipping of goods from China to the country of destination.
It implies China sourcing agents will identify suppliers and help in purchasing goods, and then the freight forwarder will arrange for:
- Transportation from supplier to the designated warehouse
- Customs clearance both in the country of origin and destination
- Book space with a shipping line
- Supervise loading and offloading of cargo
- Advice on better shipping options
They arrange for the shipping of imports from China on behalf of the clients.
So once the China sourcing agents identify and buy goods, freight forwarders will handle the remaining bit of the process.
Searching for Freight Forwarder through Freight Forwarder Associations
Freight forwarders who are members of freight forwarder associations tend to be legitimate. It is because the umbrella body recognizes them.
However, you should vet the China freight forwarder to ensure they meet the specific requirements of your business.

Difference between China Freight Forwarder and Custom Broker
China freight forwarders are entities concerned with the logistics requirements of the cargo by arranging for transportation, storage, and preparing shipping documents.
Depending on the partnerships of the freight forwarder, they also help in customs clearance.
On the other hand, a customs broker is an entity or company that focuses on only one aspect of the logistics process.
They help importers and exporters to meet the customs requirements of a country.
Customs brokers may handle the following:
i. Submit necessary documents for customs clearance
ii. Handle entry procedures
iii. Import classification
v. Advice on customs rules and laws
In short, custom brokers only focus on the customs clearance process.
It is not the case for freight forwarders who handle a range of logistics procedures.
Disadvantage of Hiring Different Companies to Handle Freight Forwarding and Manage Customs Brokerage
Although most people believe that hiring different companies to handle freight forwarding process and customs brokerage is advantageous, it is not always the case.
They feel negotiating separately with the companies will make them pay less.
This approach has many disadvantages, such as:
- There is a high possibility of paying for hidden charges or costs
- Lack of coordination may cause confusion
- Delays due to poor coordination or management
- Miscommunication between the customs brokerage firm and freight forwarder is likely to occur
All these will have a significant negative impact when you are importing from China.

However, both air freight forwarder and sea freight forwarder must arrange for:
i. Transportation of good to the warehouse
ii. Supervise loading and unloading
iii. Handle customs clearance process
Documents Freight Forwarder in China need for Shipping
Documentation is a critical aspect of international business.
When importing from China, the freight forwarder in China will require the following documents:

With the Proforma invoice, the buyer can then:
- Request for funding or financing

A Proforma invoice entails – transaction details, timeframe, description of goods, HS codes, payment terms, currency, and delivery instructions among other aspects.
· Commercial Invoice
It is a document the supplier prepares after receiving an order from the buyer.
Although details of the commercial invoice may be similar to the Proforma invoice, it contains additional information such as:
- Order number
- Customer reference number
- Payment information
· Packing List
From the packing list, the China freight forwarder will create a bill of lading for shipping.
Also, in situations where you’re using the letter of credit to make payments, your bank may require a packing list.
Additionally, the customs officials may also require the packing list for clearance and inspection purposes.
A packing list will include goods or product information such as name, dimension, weight, etc.
· Certificate of Origin
It shows the country of origin for the imports. In most cases, the chamber of commerce will sign this document.
Alternatively, the country’s consulate office may also sign the certificate of origin.
Furthermore, to enjoy reduced tariffs, more so where the countries have a free trade agreement, the freight forwarder should have a document to prove the same.
· Dangerous Good Forms
In case you’re shipping dangerous goods, you will require special forms as stipulated by the:
i. International Maritime Organization (IMO), or
ii. International Air Transport Association (IATA)
The type of form for dangerous goods will depend on the mode of shipping.
· Bill of Lading
There are three types of bill of lading, and they include:
i. Inland bill of lading – the transporter will use this to carry goods from supplier to shipping company
ii. Ocean bill of lading – you will use this when transporting goods via ocean
iii. Air waybill – you will need air waybill when transporting goods via plane
Note: Depending on the type of imports from China, the freight forwarder may require additional documents or certificates.
These may includea letter of donation, a fumigation certificate, health inspection certificates, etc.
Freight Forwarding Incoterms to use when Shipping from China
Whenever you’re shipping from China, you will use certain international commercial terms.
They ensure consistency and accountability during the shipping process.

How to Ship from China without using Freight Forwarder
Shipping from China without the help of freight forwarder, more so for large quantity orders, is catastrophic.
This is because you’re likely to incur losses and delays.
Therefore, for businesses, whether for large or small quantities, I will recommend you use the services of freight forwarders.
Freight forwarder in China will take care of your shipping needs.
However, if you decide to ship from China without the help of freight forwarder, he is how to go about it:
i. Travel to China to manage the shipping process
ii. Arrange how you will transport your goods from the manufacturer or supplier’s warehouse
iii. Book shipping space either with a shipping company or airline
iv. Hire customs broker to handle the customs clearance
v. Ensure the cargo or goods are loaded in the plane or ship
vi. Travel back to your country to receive your cargo or goods
vii. Hire customs broker in your country for customs clearance
viii. Arrange for transportation of goods from the port to premises
You will spend a lot of time and money to ship your cargo from China to your home country.
To avoid this mess, hire a China freight forwarder to handle everything for you.
Difference between Third Party Logistic and Freight Forwarder in China
Third-party logistic (3PL) and freight forwarders provide almost the same services when it comes to the international shipping industry.
However, 3PL offers more services than freight forwarders.
3PL is a full-service provider while a freight forwarder acts as a “middle man” between the importer and carriers.
It implies, a 3PL acts as a carrier besides providing other services such as billing, warehousing, transportation, packing, etc.
Third-party logistics companies take care of the entire supply chain, which is not the case for the freight forwarders.
Benefits of Freight Forwarding Insurance
During the shipping process, your cargo may get damaged due to many factors that you may not control, such as:
- Mechanical breakdown of the ship
- Political tension, conflicts or war that may prevent the cargo ship from docking or plane from landing
- Unfavorable weather conditions, amongst others.
Therefore freight forwarding insurance will ensure you get compensation in case of any damages.
As a result, freight forwarder insurance gives you peace of mind knowing that you will not incur any losses during the shipping process.

Therefore, if you hire an unethical freight forwarder, there is a high chance that they will overcharge you for certain services.

It is for this reason that you need insurance.
At the same time, you should work with a professional freight forwarder who will supervise the loading process.
