1. Experience
Ensure that your freight forwarding company has relevant experience in this field already – their experience says a lot about everything they have dealt with throughout their years of service; thus, make them tough enough to face any type of adversities. 
2. Network
You should ask if they are connected with many networks or group of companies all over the world, which can somehow boost their reliability on your part. Do they know the companies from the countries they are importing to and exporting from? Are they known in this field? Are their business partnerships with other cargo companies good enough?
3. Services
Familiarize yourself with all the services that the company offers. They must accommodate more than just freight forwarding but also be able to manage land, air, or sea transportation for international shipping – from door to door to various types of delivery and importation.
4. References
If you are to choose a freight forwarding company ( or any kind of company for this matter ) ask people who are reliable enough to tell you the truth about their experience with the company they asked services from. A good reference is a good basis for telling if you should or you should not incorporate with a certain company.
5. Customer Service
Good service, good reference, good background and what completes this is, of course, a good customer service from the freight forwarding company. Once they start to work with you, they must be able to provide daily or weekly updates about your shipment and products. They should never leave you in so much stress, or many questions regarding the status of your shipment. They must continually serve you, especially during the time of shipment of your products.
