Asendia USA working with Broad Reach to expand services for US-based retailers shipping to Canada
Asendia USA has announced a joint venture with Broad Reach and its CEO Dave Mays to further strengthen and expand its service offering for US-based retailers shipping to Canada.
Through this joint venture, majority owned by Asendia USA, Mays will apply his extensive knowledge of the market to further strengthen Asendia’s infrastructure and distribution channels into Canada.
Mays will be dedicated to developing industry-best technologies and services for e-commerce sellers.
According to Asendia USA: “From digital solutions to help retailers enhance their websites, to efficient and cost-effective direct entry distribution solutions, this collaboration will make cross-border selling to Canada even easier for US retailers.”
Enhanced digital solutions will allow US brands to improve customer experience on their websites to better attract and retain Canadian online shoppers, while shipping solutions at competitive rates will help retailers’ grow sales across the border with ease.
Asendia USA said the joint venture will be “key to its strategic growth plans”, as it looking to expand its existing solutions to Canada in 2022, both from the USA and globally.
The company added that Mays will help to “boost its offering to this market with more robust e-commerce solutions than ever before”.
US-based online retailers that take advantage of these solutions will benefit from convenient access to operational facilities located nationwide, multiple entry points within Canada, northbound freight management and customs clearance, direct entry into the Canadian final mile network, delivery within 2 to 6 days to major points, improved transit options (expedited and standard), and enhanced tracking and visibility.
“I look forward to working in collaboration with Asendia to reach new heights of excellence for US merchants shipping to Canada. I couldn’t be more motivated,” said Mays. “My experience and skill set perfectly compliment the current international parcel logistics network at Asendia. Together, we will help raise the bar for cross-border e-commerce from US to Canada. I’m energised to be working with a very strong team here in the USA and abroad while keeping my focus on Canada and our relentless commitment to improvement and innovation.”
Rob DiVincenzo, CEO of Asendia USA, added: “Dave brings a unique combination of market knowledge, expertise, and experience to further drive Asendia USA’s expansion into the Canadian e-commerce market. Asendia USA is very excited to have Dave on our team and is looking forward to offering US retailers an amazing portfolio of solutions to successfully grow their business north of the border.”
