Forwarding companies are an integral part of supply chains and an intermediary between the carrier and the customer. The aim of the article is to provide information on the forwarder's position in the transport market. In connection with the procurement of transport, we focus on comparing transport performance in selected European countries. We take a closer look at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on transport performance in France. The transport of goods is a risk area that has various negative effects on transport companies. In this article, we provide an overview of criminal activity in France, focusing on the specific types of risk involved. As the frequency of each potential risk occurrence is an important factor, it is necessary to make a codification of the overall threats facing the company, their consequences and the likelihood of their occurrence. These risks can be prevented by making the right decisions. For the carrier, the easiest risk prevention is route planning. The effect of choosing a safer transport route on the size of the risk is described in the article.
