Discover the many benefits of cross trading

     Time to Cut Costs, presented to remind importers that they can save money by having freight shipped directly to a customs location.

Did you know you can save time and money by having freight shipped directly from any point of origin to the customer’s location?  The advantage of this approach, called cross trading, is that the usual middle step (shipment to your location) is skipped.

For example, assume the point of origin is in China, your warehouse is in Toronto, and your customer is in Chicago.  With cross trading, the freight would go directly from China to Chicago, leading to savings in terms of transit time and freight costs.

Contact Debbie McGuire, Manager – Freight Solutions at (905) 882-4880 or by email to learn about our complete package of solutions, including how you can benefit by taking control of your freight.  We can also talk to you about competitive pricing, securing bookings, documentation handling, tracking facilities and pre/on carriage arrangements.
