Employers of freight forwarders fall roughly into three types, although there are overlaps within these groups:
Many freight forwarders have taken the opportunity to extend their range of services, which now include warehousing, sorting, order picking, packaging and goods assembly. A few firms just work with other freight forwarders.
Specialist recruitment agencies such as Freight Personnel also handle vacancies. For a list of member agencies specialising in logistics and freight, search the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) .
You can write speculatively to companies to enquire about vacancies. The British International Freight Association (BIFA) has contact details of its members on its website, which can be used for applications.
