3PL Companies (Located Outside of Canada and the USA)
If you have clients that ship items to, from (and within) Canada
then we can provide you with the infrastructure and technology
that will allow you to offer a distribution point direct out
of our main facilities in Canada and the USA.
of our clients operates a successful wholesale courier company
out of London, England. They sell courier services to the retail
public. Two of the destinations that they service from the UK
are Canada and the USA. Since this courier company has excellent
shipping volumes to Canada and the USA they are able
to enter all their daily orders into E-SHIPPER
and print out the waybills on their end (to affix to the packages).
Once all the packages are ready to go they simply consolidate
all the shipments together in courier bags and then send them
by Air to us here in Canada and the US. This specific company
ships to us in this same manner 5 days a week. We do all the
customs clearances on their behalf and then interject the shipments
into the appropropriate domestic courier stream.
in this fashion saves our client
big money on each shipping transaction. Instead of having to
ship each package individually and pay expensive International
rates direct from the UK to Canada and the US, our client can
instead consolidate a batch of shipments and only pay very low
domestic shipping rates.
Since all shipments are entered
by our client, they are in complete control of every package
from origin to destination. This client also has complete visibility
into all the tracking and reporting of every shipment in real-time.
Our alliance with this particular UK courier company has allowed
them to expand their customer base by offering highly discounted
rates along with premium service levels that their competitors
simply cannot match.
