Container Freight Station (CFS)

A Container Freight Station (CFS) is a facility where containers are loaded, consolidated, and deconsolidated for shipment by ocean, air, or land transportation. A CFS is typically used by freight forwarders, NVOCCs, and other logistics providers as a central location for handling and storing containers before they are transported to their final destination. The CFS provides a range of services, including the receipt of cargo, inspection and verification of the cargo, packing and unpacking of containers, and the preparation of customs documentation.
