Forwarder’s Cargo Receipt (FCR)

A Forwarder's Cargo Receipt (FCR) is a document used in international freight forwarding that confirms the receipt of cargo by the freight forwarder from the shipper. It is a legally binding document that states the terms and conditions of the agreement between the shipper and the forwarder. The FCR serves as evidence of the forwarder's possession of the cargo and their responsibility to arrange for its transportation to the final destination.
