Within the freight forwarding industry, you will find many different air freight quote and sea freight quote formats. Some freight forwarding companies total air freight quotes and sea freight quotes, while others provide an itemised list of charges.
BCR has been serving customers as a freight forwarder for more than 120 years and therefore we have a substantial amount of experience with air freight quotes and sea freight quotes. At BCR, when we provide an air freight quote or a sea freight quote, we provide an itemised list of all charges for the shipment instead of a total quote.
Providing an all-inclusive quote is likely to cause disappointment. There are numerous variables that make up the final price and some of the information provided to formulate the air freight quote or sea freight quote may be incorrect. Some of the items that may be inaccurate include type of goods to be shipped, number of packages, actual weight of the shipment, dimensions of the shipment, terms of sale (Incoterms), pick-up and drop-off address. Small discrepancies will vary the price when compared with the quote.
An additional item to consider is the currency the itemised changes will be charged in and the exchange rate for those currencies. These too will vary the price when compared with the quote.
If you are sourcing an air freight quote or sea freight quote with BCR and would like assistance in understanding the itemised list of changes, contact the BCR team member that provided you with the air freight or sea freight quote and they can provide detailed information to assist you in determining your final estimated air freight quote or sea freight quote amount.
