Purolator USA last week launched its Purolator USA Express service, providing New York metropolitan area businesses guaranteed overnight delivery to Canada with Web-based customs clearance.
The service includes guaranteed on-time delivery without the additional cost normally applied for international delivery service, a Web-based paperless customs clearance process that prepares customs paperwork electronically, and premium air service at ground service rates, Purolator said.
Purolator maintains facilities on both sides of the U.S. and Canadian border and provides customers access to an extensive Canadian distribution network.
By The Numbers: U.S. Surface Trade With Canada.
Bilateral trade agreements between New York State and Canada have increased the need for a reliable and cost effective cross-border delivery service.
"Purolator USA is uniquely qualified to meet the expanding needs of businesses, especially during the economic downturn, when many are looking to Canada for business opportunities," said Conal Finnegan, vice president for strategy and business development, Purolator USA.
Purolator USA Express offers businesses four delivery options:
-- money back guaranteed next-day delivery to Canada by 9:00 a.m., for urgent shipments.
-- money back guaranteed next-day delivery to Canada by 10:30 a.m., for urgent shipments that need to arrive by mid-morning.
-- next day shipments that are still urgent, but can be delivered to their Canadian destination by end-of-day.
-- shipments that need to arrive in Canada within two days.
Purolator USA, the U.S. subsidiary of Canada's largest delivery network, Purolator Courier, entered the U.S. market in 1998 and recently expanded into seven cities across the country including Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Detroit, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Philadelphia, and Raleigh/Durham.
