We realize that our customers' expect us to deliver their goods as quickly and as cost efficiently as possible, and we strive to exceed those expectations.
Jericho, NY (Vocus) July 2, 2009
Purolator USA recently opened a new full service processing facility in Farmingdale, Long Island that offers comprehensive cross border logistics services for shipments traveling between the United States and Canada. The 8,000 square foot facility will service businesses located across the metropolitan New York region, including New York City, northern New Jersey, Westchester and Rockland counties, Long Island and southern Connecticut.
"We are delighted to have a physical presence in the New York metro area," said branch manager Mike DiBenedetto. "Businesses are aware that Purolator is the 'go to' name for cross border logistics, and the response since our mid-June opening has just been fantastic."
DiBenedetto explained that the Farmingdale facility's location provides easy access to the region's airports, as well as to the critical highway system. Shipments arriving at the Farmingdale facility are generally processed and consolidated on-site, usually within a few hours of leaving their original destination. "Our on-site consolidation capabilities set us apart from our competitors," DiBenedetto explained. "We realize that our customers' expect us to deliver their goods as quickly and as cost efficiently as possible, and we strive to exceed those expectations."
Purolator maintains operations throughout both the U.S. and Canada, with unmatched distribution networks in each country. This unfettered access means that Purolator can generally deliver shipments directly to the end user without having to endure costly distribution center stopovers.
Customers also benefit from Purolator's expertise with U.S. and Canadian border clearance requirements. Purolator maintains a team of trade specialists who ensure that customers are in compliance with all regulatory mandates, and who can also help customers take advantage of trade enhancements offered by either government.
DiBenedetto noted that while the Farmingdale facility may be new, Purolator has a long history in the New York market. Purolator Courier Ltd., Canada's foremost provider of courier services, maintained a presence throughout the United States from the mid-1940s through the mid-1980s. Following a series of mergers and consolidations, Purolator left the U.S. market for a period of more than 15 years. The company reemerged in 1998 as Purolator USA, a subsidiary of Purolator Courier.
"Purolator has always been regarded as the preeminent provider of cross border logistics," he said, "and many of our customers have commented that they are thrilled to have us back and to again be able to trust their logistics needs to Purolator."
