It seems that every business in Texas has its eye to the north, and as a result, the demand for good cross border logistics has really surged.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 29, 2008
US businesses are increasingly looking to Canada to expand their customer base, and generally finding a receptive audience. Sales between the US and Canada peaked during 2006 at almost $577 billion, with $23 billion between Texas and Canada alone, and this upward climb is expected to continue. While the economic outlook for the U.S. economy remains tenuous, the comparative strength of the Canadian dollar has provided unexpected opportunities for smart U.S. businesses that can reach Canadian customers.
John T. Costanzo, president of Purolator USA, a leading expert in cross border transportation logistics, says that his company has seen an increase in business as a result of the increased amount of goods moving between Canada and Texas. "It seems that every business in Texas has its eye to the north, and as a result, the demand for good cross border logistics has really surged."
Texas' success in reaching the Canadian market was the subject of a news interview that Costanzo gave recently to KRLD NewsRadio in Dallas. During that interview, Costanzo discussed the tremendous increase in Texas/Canada cross border trade.
Canadian consumers have taken advantage of the comparatively strong Canadian loonie by ordering a record amount of goods over the Internet. While consumer spending is certainly a part of the growth in cross border activity, Costanzo says that the bulk of the increase is fueled by "great Texas manufacturers," who have found Canadian markets for their diverse products. "Unshaped plastics, chemicals, computers and motor vehicle parts alone account for almost $4.6 billion worth of goods sent from Texas to Canada."
Purolator USA recently responded to the increased need for cross border expertise by opening a new full-service processing facility in Grapevine. That facility, with its close proximity to DFW airport ensures the timely processing of shipments traveling either by air or via ground. Purolator USA offers transportation and logistics solutions for businesses that ship regularly between Canada and the United States. In addition, Purolator USA offers delivery options for small package and express shipments traveling within the United States.
