Purolator International President John Costanzo Named a 2016 “Pro to Know” by Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine
Costanzo Honored Two Consecutive Years for His Strategic Vision to Support Omni Channel
JERICHO, NY – February 17, 2016 – Purolator International, the leading provider of cross-border logistics between the U.S. and Canada, is pleased to announce that its president, John Costanzo has been named a 2016 Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. This is the second consecutive year that Costanzo has been given this honor for his leadership and strategic vision in helping customers adapt their supply chains to face the challenges of today’s business climate.
Costanzo was recognized for his efforts to ensure Purolator International is well positioned to support today’s onmi channel approach to offer a unified customer experience across all shopping mediums – in store, online, catalog and site to store. Purolator’s regional ground network is perfect for U.S. based organizations looking to deliver orders cost effectively in Canada through multiple channels of order fulfillment. Purolator’s courier services provide effective direct to store, store to store, office, and distribution center (DC) delivery; and PuroPostTM enables cost effective residential/home delivery, timely service, and retail center pickup.
PuroLogistics offers a unique solution to optimize the supply chain every step of the way – including import services, customs clearance, port recovery and inland U.S. and Canadian forwarding and delivery, transportation management, as well as inventory and seasonal demand management, consolidation services, and returns processing. The full service solution is customized for each user, with all the data integrated into a customer’s existing IT platform. A key advantage of PuroLogistics is the regional multi-client warehouses that allow customers to reduce distribution center and transportation costs. Customers only pay for the warehouse space used, while being closer to the customer, allowing them to reduce order-to-delivery time and provide an improved customer experience.
“Supply chains are the key to making a company more flexible and adaptable to customer demands. In the past, having one type of product with a long life cycle was the norm. Today, customers are driving the supply chain with their demands for regularly updated/new products, delivery and fulfillment options, and transparency of shipment information,” said Costanzo. “Whether in a B2B or B2C environment, Purolator can help U.S. based businesses reduce time to market and save money on their shipping and logistics costs.”
Over the past 10 years, Purolator International has grown to have a presence in 30 U.S. markets, consistently doubles its business every 3-5 years, and employs more than 200 nationwide. The company recently announced it has expanded its national headquarters on Long Island to accommodate this rapid growth, and has plans to continuing hiring additional employees over the next 10 years.
Costanzo has been leading organizations in the supply chain and logistics industry for more than 25 years. He currently serves on the board of the Long Island Association, and recently chaired the LIA’s Global NY Work Group, which focused on growth of Long Island’s economy and promotes development of manufacturing and exports.
