Purolator Names Dave Borchik as Eastern District Manager

September 14, 2010 – JERICHO, NY — Purolator USA, a leading provider of U.S.-Canada cross border logistics, has appointed David Borchik to the position of Eastern District Manager. In his capacity, Borchik will have overall responsibility for sales operations and account relationships, as well as for ensuring consistency of processes throughout the Eastern region.

Borchik brings to his position more than 25 years of experience in the global logistics and supply chain industries. Most recently, he served as President of Link Logistics NA, LLC, an independent transportation company with expertise in export/import services. Prior to that, Borchik held a senior position with Maersk Line shipping company with emphasis on sales, operations and building account relationships in the global transportation and logistics arena.

“Dave’s tremendous experience in the logistics field will be a great asset both to Purolator and to our customers,” said Director of Sales John Jensen. “He has great insight into current practices in global supply chain solutions that will ensure Purolator’s status as the ‘go to’ provider of solutions for service to, from and within the Canadian market.”

Reliable access to the Canadian market has become critical, with U.S. businesses increasingly looking to Canada as a source of economic growth. The U.S. Department of Commerce reported that trade between the two countries during June increased more than 32 percent over 2009 levels, with Canadian consumers exhibiting a strong demand for U.S products.

Purolator offers U.S. businesses unmatched expertise in providing comprehensive logistics solutions that offer flexibility, value and guaranteed performance. Purolator is highly skilled in moving goods through the customs/border clearance process, with shipments arriving at the border pre-cleared for entry. Once in Canada, Purolator maintains an extensive distribution network that can guarantee delivery to any location in Canada, often without having to endure a costly distribution center stopover.
