The study was conducted within the Zimbabwean Freight Forwarding Industry. The study sought to investigate the effects of globalization on Zimbabwean Freight Forwarding Companies. The main objective of the study was to make an investigation into the effects of globalization within the freight forwarding industry and find possible ways of manipulating the resultant opportunities and mitigating the negative effects of globalization to the industry. The study was motivated by; an increase in the amount of cross border trade in goods and services thereby allowing an increased flow of foreign currency, a rise in corruption activities due to increased trade relationships within the world economy, exploitation of labour, increased competition which led local industries to be taken over by foreign multinationals thereby posing serious threats on the Zimbabwean political environment and moreover the need to create the concept of out sourcing, customer support and insurance.
