Purolator International opens office in Denver
Purolator International, the leading provider of cross-border logistics between the U.S. and Canada and a subsidiary of Canada’s largest integrated delivery services provider, Purolator Inc., has announced the opening of a new U.S. branch office in Denver, Colorado. The Denver branch joins six established branches in Purolator International’s western district that support Purolator’s rapid growth in the western United States and beyond.‘Purolator International continues to improve customer service with an increased presence in key U.S. markets,’ said Purolator International President John T. Costanzo. ‘Denver is such a location and we are pleased to open a branch here to more efficiently oversee air and surface transportation to and from Canada, the premier destination for Colorado trade.’
Canada has consistently been Colorado’s top export market, with more than $1.5 billion worth of goods shipped to that country during 2011 ’ a figure that represents 21 percent of total state exports. Almost $600 billion in goods and services crossed the U.S./Canadian border that year ’ a rate of more than $1.6 billion per day. The breadth and scope of Purolator International’s network and the company’s well established history with the Canadian market make local business expansion into Canada seamless.
‘Purolator International is an industry leader,’ said Miller. ‘I’m excited to be heading up this new office that will enable companies in Colorado to smoothly and easily expand north of the border into Canada.’
To facilitate cross border logistics for shipments traveling between the U.S. and Canada, Purolator International opened seven new branch offices in 2012 in key U.S. markets and anticipates three additional office locations will open during the first quarter of 2013.
Exports have played an important role in the U.S. recovery and in the fourth quarter of 2011, exceeded $2 trillion. Canada is the United States’ major export destination, but most businesses choose to remain on the sidelines or make the mistake of entrusting their Canada-bound shipments to a U.S. logistics provider that may not have experience in the Canadian market.
