FB CANADA EXPRESS PREPARES FOR A RECORD PEAK SEASON
FB Canada Express says it is ready for the record peak season that is anticipated this year.
Since 1985, FB Canada Express has been an independent service provider for courier companies around the globe, providing them with valuable access to the Canadian marketplace. They offer a host of strategic benefits for express and e-commerce logistics clients, including expedited clearance, full event tracking, DDU/DDP options, and return logistics.
As the demands of e-commerce continue to evolve, many carriers are looking for a wholesale provider to offer them increased flexibility.
“With the Canadian postal strike that occurred last year during peak season, we had to make significant investments to rapidly increase our capacity,” said Nicholas Timmins, CFO at FB Canada Express. “Our goal was to meet the needs of international courier clients who were forced to find an alternative solution for their B2C shipments entering Canada. Our technology and infrastructure upgrades helped support this sudden increase in demand and will definitely help support the future growth we see coming this year.”
With Customs Bonded warehouses located near airports in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal, FB Canada Express can quickly and efficiently handle inbound/outbound freight. Depending on flight arrival, customs released parcels can be injected into a final mile delivery network on the same day.
According to John Sproat, COO at FB Canada Express, shipping volumes are expected to be particularly high during the 2019 holiday period. “As Black Friday/Cyber Monday approaches, we anticipate a much larger peak season this year. We can already see it based on what has arrived so far,” he said.
“Whether it’s B2B/B2C or a mix of DDP/DDU, our clients take full advantage of our flexible approach to maximise the value of their existing line hauls.”
With over 35 years of experience, FB Canada express is exceptionally well-positioned to meet customers’ needs for Canada-bound shipments. Additionally, as cross-border volumes continue to increase, the company looks forward to providing a range of tailored and competitive solutions for its clients while maintaining a neutral wholesale position.
