Supply chain solutions that deliver efficiency and savings

Your supply chain should be as nimble and flexible as your business needs to be. That’s why we offer a range of supply chain solutions that offer personalized service, maximum efficiency and exceptional value. Our scope of services ranges from comprehensive supply chain management programs to value-added services, including shipment preparation and data integration.

For example: If border-crossing fees are hurting your bottom line, our logistics experts will consolidate your small shipments into one large shipment, which will then be cleared for entry into Canada as a single transaction. The result is reduced costs and a faster Canadian customs regulations and border clearance process.

If customs paperwork isn’t accurate and letter perfect, your shipment will be held up. We can help. Our shipment preparation services and cross border expertise will ensure that your shipments arrive at the border — often pre-cleared for entry into Canada — with necessary documentation already complete.

Regardless of the level of service your business needs, we can tailor a supply chain solution that integrates our expertise in the Canadian market, extensive distribution networks, technological capabilities and returns management options.
