Jericho, NY (Vocus) December 7, 2010
Canada-bound shipments can now reach their destination faster and with greater efficiency, by taking advantage of logistics solutions offered by Purolator USA. Purolator, which services mid-Atlantic businesses from its Raleigh-Durham processing facility, is a leading provider of supply chain solutions for shipments to, from and within the Canadian market.
“Purolator really broke new ground in terms of developing non-traditional solutions to move shipments into Canada,” said Jackie Avery, manager of Purolator’s Raleigh-Durham branch. “And mid-Atlantic businesses are catching on that Purolator is the source for their logistics needs for shipments to Canada.”
One increasingly popular logistics option is the distribution center bypass (DC bypass), which allows shipments to travel directly to their Canadian destination without having to make an unneeded and costly stop at a distribution center. Traditional transit cycles include a DC stop, regardless of whether or not it is needed. Avoiding a distribution center can shave days off of a delivery schedule. Purolator is able to offer the DC bypass option because it maintains an extensive distribution network throughout Canada that enables shipments to be in continuous movement.
Purolator’s deep distribution network also allows the company to offer logistics options including consolidation and LTL services. Customers are able to achieve time and cost efficiencies by having smaller shipments consolidated at the border, and through Purolator’s broad range of delivery options and pricing flexibility.
Customers also benefit from having their packages arrive at their Canadian destination free of any unexpected border hassles, or shipping costs. Unexpected delays and fees are an increasing source of frustration among Canadian consumers, and a reason often cited for lost business. Unlike many logistics providers, Purolator presents a landed cost at the time of purchase, so a will not be faced with an unexpected bill at time of delivery.
“There is no reason for Canadian consumers to have to experience delays or hidden fees,” Avery said. “Both the U.S. and Canadian governments have programs in place to facilitate the border clearance process.
“With Purolator, businesses understand that they are entrusting their shipments to a provider that has unmatched experience and expertise in the Canadian market,” Avery added.
