ProPack is excited to be launching the new and enhanced version of our Northbound Forwarding program today. We’ve offered this program for over three years now, but today it gets a facelift with new computers, new processes and a new more throughput friendly location within our warehouse. The main reason for these changes are the new dozen or so Northbound Forwarding clients that we are equally as excited to welcome into the ProPack family.
Our Northbound Forwarding program facilitates the receipt, cross dock and couriering of packages and pallets being shipped from the US to our clients in Canada. Our clients first give our address to their customers in the US. These customers then send their shipments directly to ProPack. We receive the shipments and input them into our WMS (Warehouse Management System). Our clients then instruct us on which shipments are cleared and ready to be couriered across the border. We then scan the selected shipments out of our system, palletize them and courier the combined shipment to our client’s requested location in Canada.
The entire process is visible online and all packages/pallets are scanned in and out of our WMS system.
This saves our clients and their customer on international shipping fees and provides a simple straightforward solution for our client’s northbound shipments. Also, the majority of packages that are received into our facility are processed and couriered up to Canada the very same day. Not only is our program cost-effective and accurate, it’s also fast.
We’re excited to be expanding this area of our 3PL (3rd Party Logistics) operation and look forward to providing future clients with the same level and quality of service as we continue to grow.
