Take advantage of the services offered by our new U.S. freight office

     Buffalo
  Our office in Buffalo now offers both freight and customs brokerage services.

We are very proud to announce an important milestone in our company’s 66 year history, with the official launch of U.S. freight services at our Buffalo, New York location.

Having operated as a U.S. customs broker since 2009, this expansion enables us to offer our U.S. and Canadian based clients a wider range of cross-border and international freight services, helping them to reduce freight costs and optimize transit times.  With the recent approval of our FMC License, we are now authorized by the Federal Maritime Commission to operate as a licensed Ocean Freight Forwarder and a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) in the U.S..

Moreover, we have made a key staff addition with the hiring of Lisa Fertita, General Manager – Freight Services, a new position created to manage our U.S. freight operations (see At Your Service for more details).

“We are incredibly excited about the potential for our Buffalo office, especially in the light of the positive forecasts for the future growth of the U.S. economy, Canada’s largest trading partner,” says Chris Barnard, Vice President – Projects & Market Development.

Don’t book your next U.S. freight shipment until you have checked out the many ways we can help you save time and money.  Contact Chris Barnard by email or phone, (905) 882-4880, ext. 229, to learn more about the client benefits we can offer by having a full-service office in Buffalo, a key international trade and logistics gateway within 500 miles of 40% of the continental North American population.
