Garden Supply B2B Finds Greater Efficiency in Reaching Canadian Market

Challenge: When a large U.S. B2B supplier of gardening tools and equipment decided to expand to the Canadian market, it enlisted its U.S.-based logistics provider to service its new Canadian customers, and assumed all would proceed as planned.

Solution: It wasn't long though, that its best-laid plan began to show cracks. Customers began to ask why the company was not using a Canadian transportation company. Shipments were taking days longer than they should have, and the transportation provider was having trouble reaching some of the more remote regions of Canada.

Results: The company asked Purolator, a company deeply rooted in Canada, to intervene. Purolator maintains an extensive network that ensures access to all regions of Canada. And, Purolator's consolidated linehaul solution had shipments across the border, at their end destination days ahead of the previous carrier. The garden supplier is very pleased and thanks to Purolator, has really put down roots in Canada!

About the Solution Provider: Purolator International is a U.S. subsidiary of Purolator Inc., Canada's largest integrated parcel and freight delivery services provider. Purolator International specializes in the air and surface forwarding of Express, Freight and Parcel shipments, customs brokerage, and fulfillment and delivery services to, from and within Canada.
