New York Businesses Increasingly Turn to NY-Based Purolator USA for Transportation Logistics

Jericho, NY – October 6, 2008 — Businesses throughout New York State face unprecedented increases in transportation logistics costs, at a time when economic conditions within the state are not conducive to growth or to business in general. As a result, many business operators are turning to transportation logistics provider Purolator USA, which offers a wide array of logistics services at cost efficient pricing levels, right in their own backyard.

These businesses are finding that Purolator USA, which operates several facilities throughout New York State, including its headquarters office in Long Island, processing facilities in Newburgh and New York City (JFK Airport) and a branch office in Buffalo, offers customers customized logistics plans that take into account specific regional needs, at a competitive price.

“We are pleased to offer customized logistic services to New York businesses, especially at a time when our competitive pricing and focus on customer service can really help our customers cut costs,” says Purolator USA President John Costanzo.

Purolator USA is recognized as a leader in providing logistics services for shipments traveling to-and-from Canada, as well as within the United States. The company’s cross border expertise has been especially helpful, as bilateral trade between the United States and Canada is at an all-time high.

New York businesses are taking advantage of the strong market in Canada for their goods. During 2007, New York businesses exported more than $13 billion in goods to Canada an increase of almost 38 percent over the past five years. During the same period, New Yorkers purchased more than $26 billion in Canadian goods and services.

“Clearly there is a strong need among New York businesses for logistics providers with expertise in cross border transactions,” Costanzo says. “Purolator USA stands apart from our competitors because of our vast experience in moving goods between the United States and Canada.”

Purolator USA has operations in both Canada and the United States, which provide access to established and extensive distribution networks throughout either country. Through its Purolator Trade Solutions service, Purolator USA provides access to cross border trade specialists, who can easily navigate U.S. and Canadian customs regulations and procedures.

In addition, Purolator’s New York processing centers are poised to consolidate goods for easy transport over the border into Canada, and to simplify returns back into the U.S. “Businesses can realize a tremendous cost savings if they take the time to find a logistics provider who can consolidate their goods into a fewer number of shipments,” Costanzo says. “Because of Purolator’s extensive distribution networks in Canada and the U.S., we can help avoid costly warehouse stopovers and transfers.”

As New York businesses continue to look north to expand their customer bases, experienced cross border logistics providers will be a vital part of the business supply chain.
