Alibaba shipping – Sourcing Agent vs Freight Forwarder

From your experience, what is the best and cheapest way:

  1. To have a sourcing agent in China who helps only in shipping from China to the USA. How is the process transparent, and how to trust them? BTW, do they help in negotiating with suppliers too? If yes how
  2. Have your own account on FedEx or DHL (if you know any cheaper freight forwarders, please comment below) and check prices on your own? In this case, do you have to do any clearances on your own?

I'm open to any advice, tutorials, books, blogs, etc., especially your experience is essential.
