Sub-Contracting

Your company is doing business with Agencies or Universities—in the Virginia’s Procurement System! (Or, if you are a buyer in eVA – Virginia’s Procurement System at the Universities, or at the Agencies in Virginia).

What is a Freight Forwarder? A freight forwarder, freight forwarding company, or forwarding agent, also known as a non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC), is a person or company that organizes shipments for individuals or corporations to get goods from the manufacturer or producer to a market, customer or final point of distribution. Forwarders contract with a carrier or often multiple carriers to move the goods. A forwarder does not move the goods but acts as an expert in the logistics network. The carriers can use a variety of shipping modes, including trucks and railroad (inter-modal) and often use multiple modes for a single shipment. For example, the freight forwarder may arrange to have cargo moved from a plant to an airport by truck, flown to the destination city and then moved from the airport to a customer’s building by another truck.

1)    Freight Brokers (3PLs) have already the leg work to develop relationships with thousands of carriers across the country. This is great, because it saves time from you having to develop those relationships yourself. We’re your carrier “shipping service” rather than a packaging or storage service.

2)    When we’re dealing with a freight broker, it’s almost like hiring your own personal freight manager. It gives you time to concentrate on other aspects of your business, while a quality broker will create your bill of ladings, schedule your Freight pickups, track your orders, and audit your invoices before sending them to you. 

3)   Government contracting can help your business grow, so if you’re ready to increase the odds that you’ll get the bid and you need a freight and shipping quote, give me a call. The 4) Shipping Emporium is a small business certified freight provider dedicated to helping you grow your business!

In fact, here is what one client has to say about working with – The Shipping Emporium.


“The Shipping Emporium has been an important partner with MJL Enterprises as we respond to quote requests from the US Department of Defense and Federal Agencies. We are often under tight deadlines to respond with competitive quotes. Fortunately, The Shipping Emporium, is very responsive with their transportation quotes and is also very competitive in her pricing. Sometimes inexpensive freight costs are the deciding factor when we compete for Government business. I’m positive working with The Shipping Emporium has given us the edge over our competitors for this business. Furthermore, Jane always keeps us in the loop with updates as our freight moves and is happy to provide Pick-Up Records, Delivery Receipts or additional insurance for our cargo. It’s been a pleasure working with Jane and The team at Shipping Emporium, we are very fortunate to have them on our team!”
