In the shipping industry the term "agent" or "shipping agent" could be defined as follows:
The Shipping Agent is a permanent representative, who in a local/foreign port of call, looks after the owner's interests, in the latter's name and at his expense.
A freight forwarder is an individual or organization that organizes shipments for others. Forwarding agents handle orders from manufacturers to market or final point of distribution. In order to do so, agents will contract asset-based carriers to complete the movement of goods ranging from raw agricultural products to manufactured goods. Typically, a forwarder is not a carrier. The Freight can be booked on a variety of carrier types, including ships, airplanes, trucks, and railroads.
To put it simply, a freight forwarder is a "travel agent," for the cargo industry.
The typical information reviewed by a freight forwarder is the commercial invoice, shipper's export declaration, bill of lading, and other documents required by the carrier or country of export, import, or transshipment.
