Jericho, NY (PRWEB) December 12, 2007
Purolator Courier Ltd., Canada's leading integrated distribution services company, is back in the U.S. domestic market after an absence of more than 18 years.
The company's U.S. subsidiary -- Purolator USA -- which maintains its headquarter operations in Jericho, NY, recently introduced small package delivery service within the United States. The new intra-U.S. service was introduced in response to business customers who rely on Purolator USA for their shipping needs to Canada.
"Our new U.S. domestic service for business was extremely well received by many of our existing customers," says Conal Finnegan, Purolator USA vice president of strategic initiatives and business developments, "so now we are offering domestic U.S. small-package courier service to businesses nationwide."
The new service marks a re-emergence of the Purolator brand in the domestic U.S. market. Purolator Courier began U.S. domestic operations in 1947 and the brand was active in the U.S. up until a wave of industry consolidations in the late 1980s. Purolator Courier continued to operate as the industry leader in Canada and, in 1998, bought back the right to use the Purolator name in the U.S., and the company was reincorporated.
In more recent years, as Purolator USA focused on its industry-leading cross-border services, and on building a strong regional branch network, it became evident that the Purolator brand remains recognized and well respected among U.S. businesses.
"It's great to be back, and our small-package ground service really stands out because of rating and pricing solutions that we are offering during the launch period," says Finnegan. "It means a quicker, more efficient and less expensive option in the domestic small-package arena."
