ProPack’s southbound forwarding program allows Canadian companies access to domestic US shipping rates from within Canada. Packages that would have otherwise been shipped internationally from Canada to the US instead are shipped from within the US at a fraction of the cost. ProPack has had this program successfully in place for several years with clients in southwestern British Columbia saving significantly on their US shipping costs.
Traditionally with the southbound forwarding program Canadian companies have forwarded their packages to ProPack’s Blaine, WA location along with a list of ship-to addresses. Each shipment is received, matched up with its paperwork and processed individually in Blaine.
ProPack is now pilot testing a new version of the program where Canadian companies log into ProPack’s online manifest system and process their packages from within Canadian. These processed packages are then couriered down to ProPack where they are simply transferred to their respective FedEx, UPS or US Mail trucks.
This new approach cuts out the sorting, paperwork matching and processes at ProPack’s end. Streamlining the process greatly speeds up turnaround time and allows for almost all packages processed within Canada to ship domestically from ProPack on the same day. Also by processes shipments themselves ProPack’s Canadian clients have instant access to all their shipment, tracking and charge information before their shipments leave their facilities.
A summary of benefits to ProPack’s southbound forwarding program are:
- Lower Shipping Costs; Domestic US Rates for FedEx, UPS and US Mail
- Same Day Service
- Extended Cutoff Times
- Wide Range of Shipping Services
- Work with Local Companies
- Online Visibility to Tracking Numbers and Shipping Charges
- Returns Program Available
