Purolator USA’s New Buffalo Branch Offers Cross Border Logistics Services

JERICHO, NY – May 27, 2008 — Purolator USA, the small-package and freight forwarding subsidiary of Canada’s largest integrated distribution services company, has announced the opening of a new branch office to service the upstate New York region. The new branch is located at 1000 Young Street in Tonawanda and services businesses that ship regularly to Canada and within the U.S.

Purolator USA’s expansion into the Buffalo region comes at a time when cross border trade between the United States and Canada is at an all-time high. The U.S. State Department reports that more than $1.5 billion in goods and services cross the border on a daily basis, and that volume is expected to increase. Cross border activity has been spurred on by the comparative strength of the Canadian dollar versus its U.S. counterpart. Canadian consumers look to their southern neighbor, and see lower-priced goods. This has fueled the market for U.S. exports, and for transportation logistics providers to help move goods back and forth across the border.

“Purolator USA offers unmatched experience and expertise in cross border logistics, and can ensure the seamless movement of goods across both sides of the Canadian border,” says Scott Coleman, branch manager of the new Tonawanda office. “I am excited about the opportunity to introduce these advantages to businesses shipping to Canada from the upstate New York region.”

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

Purolator USA also offers small package and express delivery services within the United States. “We began offering the domestic service option during 2007, and it has already proven to be superior to services offered by our competitors,” says Coleman.

“What really sets Purolator USA apart from our competitors is our ability to tailor logistics plans for each of our customers, based on their unique needs,” Coleman says. “No two customers are alike, so we have no ‘one size fits all’ method of transporting goods. Our team works with each customer to develop a plan that gets goods where they need to be as quickly and as cost effectively as possible.”

Purolator USA doubled the size of its U.S. office network during the past 12 months, with branches or gateways now operating in Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Detroit, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Philadelphia, Raleigh/Durham and Newburgh, NY.
