Because the duties and tariffs issues associated with shipping out of the country can get complicated with customs fees, we wanted to make shopping with us as easy as possible for our customers.
Urbana, IA (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
US Cargo Control, a leading retailer serving the transportation, moving, rigging, and lifting sling industries, has announced its new EZ Ship Canada program for its e-commerce business.
The customer-focused initiative was rolled out earlier this month and is the growing company’s first move into international shipping. It was developed to offer Canadian customers an easy option for purchasing from the company without the hassle of added customs fees or extended shipping times.
“Because the duties and tariffs issues associated with shipping out of the country can get complicated with customs fees, we wanted to make shopping with us as easy as possible for our customers,” says the company’s freight manager, Joe Rauch.
Highlights of the program include:
- No hidden charges or extra fees after check out. All customs costs (brokerage fees, duties, tariffs, and taxes) are included in the final price.
- Currency is automatically converted when the customer’s credit card is processed at checkout.
- Fast shipping: expedited packages arrive in 2-3 days and ground packages in 4-12 days.
The new Canadian program is part of an overall service and sales development initiative across several areas of the growing company in 2013. In February, the business created a production department to sew and assemble its extensive line of tie down straps on-site. The number of employees has also nearly doubled since the second quarter, with new staff contributing in the areas of sales, service, and manufacturing. Rauch says the planning and preparation for the Canadian shipping program has been extensive, yet extremely rewarding.
“We’ve had a goal for some time now to be able to offer our Canadian customers an easy shipping option with an inclusive customs fees platform and faster shipping timelines,” said Rauch. “We’re thrilled that the new EZ Ship program encompasses both of those priorities.”
