Domestic Freight Forwarders

Learn how Roanoke can help

Domestic freight forwarding arranges for freight shipments to destinations within the US. Domestic freight forwarders issue bills of lading for their shipments and are designated as common carriers (non asset-based) by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Since the contract of carriage (bill of lading) is between the domestic forwarder and the cargo owner, the domestic forwarder can be first in line for any claims for cargo loss/damage.
