So, you already know that warehousing involves storing products, but you might be asking what exactly do these other service terms mean. (We know. There's a lot of verbiage in our industry.) Get ready for more definitions.
In warehousing, order fulfillment involves the picking, packing and shipment of inventory. Basically, a warehouse stores your products until orders come in, then takes your items out of stock (picking), appropriately packages them (packing), and sends them on their way to the designated business or customer (shipping).
The receipt of consolidated shipments from Canada at a U.S. warehouse where they are broken out and shipped individually via domestic services to their final consignees.
Forwarding involves directing the shipment of palletized freight between initial shipper and final consignee (i.e.the buyer, in most cases). Freight forwarding companies arrange everything from the warehousing of a company's products, to the shipping of said goods to their various locations. Freight forwarders like ProPack also take care of important shipping-related paperwork, expedite border crossings, track shipments, and keep their clients informed about the status of their products throughout the process.
