Adoption of Automated Solutions

According to a market research report published by Extrapolate, the global freight forwarding market was valued at US$180.4 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach US$251.1 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period.

Growth in the freight forwarding market is a function of macroeconomic conditions and is largely determined by the strength of international trade. According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), global trade was worth a record US$32 trillion in 2022, but amid deteriorating economic conditions and rising uncertainties, growth turned negative in the second half of the year and continued to stagnate in 2023.

As international trade fluctuates, so does the demand for integrated transport services provided by freight forwarders. As global trade slows and margins shrink, freight forwarders are increasing their adoption of digital solutions and technological advancements to survive. 

Freight forwarders are using technology to streamline operations and provide more efficient, cost-effective services, including shipment tracking software, automated customs clearance, and real-time updates to customers.

Cross Border Freight Forwarder Solutions


The need to mitigate regulatory risk and streamline import clearances with automated data entry to help drive accuracy and improve productivity, across the borders in which they operate.
Compliance with increasing security and product safety demands, which are driving key regulatory events including ICS2 and the US STOP Act along with other initiatives requiring complete and accurate advance electronic data (AED). Under ICS2, all airlines are required to submit detailed shipment information into a new centralised system known as the ‘Shared Trader Interface’, before goods are loaded on to an aircraft.
Ensuring goods move smoothly across borders to avoid cargo delays, inspection fees and fines.
The need to clear borders faster through the correct classification of goods.
