Looking for a quick, effective way to make your supply chain more efficient? Take Control. That means you choose how your freight is routed and that, in turn, means you also choose the company that provides your freight forwarder (air freight, ocean freight, truck freight) and customs brokerage services.

Choose Universal Logistics, a logistics services company with offices in Canada and the U.S., and you can look forward to savings that could add up to six figures, just one more reason why we are the trusted provider of freight forwarding and customs brokerage for a growing number of companies in Canada and the U.S.

With our Taking Control logistics strategy, your supplier no longer controls your freight. That's vital because suppliers often mark up freight costs to increase their profits at your expense. It is more common than you think – and the savings over a year can be very significant. You save even more because Universal Logistics, among the top logistics companies in Canada, is committed to helping you:

  • Optimize your freight transit times, which means you don't overpay for expedited freight when your schedule allows for a lower-cost service alternative.
  • Identify money-saving consolidation opportunities that don't compromise your delivery schedule. This proven strategy, which typically involves the combining of multiple orders from various suppliers, can help companies that ship freight regularly save several thousands of dollars – or more.
  • Proactively identify trouble spots – and recommend corrective actions – before it's too late. For example, if there is a conflict between your schedule and the operations of a vendor, we bring this to your attention and offer an alternative plan, which could involve expediting your freight or mapping out contingencies to accommodate a later delivery. Either way, you have the information required to make the most timely and cost effective business decision.
